Date:             2002-07-13
Description:      The decision documented here refers to a proposal
                  considered at the Usage Board meeting of May 2002
                  in Bath.  This document is pointed to from
                  the official list of Usage Board Decisions [1].

Text of proposal:

Decision: The Usage Board recommends using the element
"edition" from the MODS namespace, http://www.loc.gov/mods/.

Reason: Since the element is defined in another namespace
with the same semantics as proposed, this will satisfy the
needs for DC-Libraries Application Profile.  The element
"edition" in MODS complies in a general way with Dublin
Core principles and does not conflict with other DC terms.
This decision is supported by the decision tree condition
#2 in Section 5.5 of the Usage Board Process (see
