Date Published (Numeric)
Describing North Carolina Maps: Date Published (Numeric)
This field will hold the date the map was published. This field is limited to single numbers, or a range of numbers. It will be searchable, but will not be visible to users.
Dates for which the cataloger is uncertain and unable to limit to a single date should be recorded as a date range. For example, a map known to have been published sometime in the 1860s would be given the range 1860-1869 in this field. The cataloger will be able to include additional characters in the Date Published (Display) field.
