Date Issued

Label Date Issued
URI dct_issued_s
Obligation Optional
Multivalued false
Field type string
Purpose To provide the user with the date when an item was published, and for administrators to determine the age of the resource
Entry Guidelines A single year is the preferred format. For more precise dates, use the ISO format without the time value: YYYY-MM-DD or YYYY-MM.
Commentary Although the field is optional, it is often useful when a clear Temporal Coverage value is not present. For example, one may want to preserve a dataset with an uncertain lineage, but there is an indicator on a data portal on the date of last update. In most cases, the 4-digit year is sufficient.
