This topic was posted to DCRM-L on November 28, 2010 under the subject line "DPC: Mandatory note on supplied date inconsistency"
1. Proposed changes to "If the date of copyright or deposit does not represent the probable date..." [DCRM(B) 4D6.3 and DCRM(S) 4D5.3]:
If a date of publication, distribution, etc., does not appear in the source and the date of copyright or deposit does not represent the probable date of publication, distribution, etc., note it nonetheless and supply a more accurate date of publication, distribution, etc., in square brackets. Provide an explanation for the supplied date, if possible."
2. Proposed change to "Patterns for supplying a conjectural date" [DCRM(B) 4D5]:
Give any needed explanation Indicate the basis for the conjecture in a note"
BSC members will vote on Tuesday, December 7. Please use DCRM-L for any further discussion.
