Add MODS template as Date Source for OAI-PMH harvest
Currently, there is no MODS template for OAI-PMH harvesting of external collections. As an example, we have many collections in an Islandora repository and have very rich metadata in MODS format. We lose most of that metadata when the collection is harvested because we must use the DC template as the Source format.

I would second these sentiments for the Washington Research Library Consortium. In most cases, we do not create DC other than via XSLT from MODS. Importing the MODS directly would make more sense and include more detail.

We're very much in the same situation at my institution: rich metadata in MODS in our Islandora repository, no direct way to harvest it for Alma/Primo via OAI-PMH. This is an enhancement we'd definitely like to see.
