Catmandu::Importer::MODS - Catmandu Importer for importing mods records


  use Catmandu::Importer::MODS;
  my $importer = Catmandu::Importer::MODS->new(file => "modsCollection.xml");
  my $numModsElements = $importer->each(sub{
      my $modsElement = shift; # a MODS::Element::Mods object


This Catmandu::Importer reads MODS records to be processed with Catmandu. In case of a simple "mods" document, one MODS::Element::Mods item is imported. In case of a "modsCollection", several items are imported.

See Catmandu::Importer, Catmandu::Iterable, Catmandu::Logger and Catmandu::Fixable for methods and options derived from these modules.

Make sure your files are expressed in UTF-8.


Set to "xml" by default, as MODS is usually expressed in XML. Use "json" (or provide a file with extension ".json") for a custom JSON format, introduced in module MODS::Record.


See Catmandu::MODS for more information about MODS and Catmandu.
