 +====== Coding publication dates: a summary ======
 +
 +1. If there is a publication date found on the piece in hand (i.e. published in 2018), code your date as:\\
 + <​wrap indent>​264 ​ _1 , ǂc 2018.</​wrap>​\\
 +
 +2. If there is no publication date, and a copyright date is found on the piece (i.e. copyright or ©2018), infer a pub. date from it, and code your dates as:\\
 +<wrap indent>​264 _1  ǂc [2018]</​wrap>​\\
 +<wrap indent>​264 _4  ǂc ©2018</​wrap>​\\
 +
 +3. If there is no publication date and no copyright date, look for a **first** printing date (i.e. May 2018 first printing), infer a publication date from the first printing date, and code your date as:\\
 +<wrap indent>​264 _1 ǂc [2018]</​wrap>​\\
 +
 +4. If there is no publication date, no copyright date, and no **first** printing date, infer a publication date from any printing date on the resource (i.e. May 2018 printing), code your date as:\\
 +<wrap indent>​246 _1 ǂc [2018?​]</​wrap>​\\
 +
 +5. If there is no publication date, no copyright date, and no first printing date anywhere on the resource; but, on the last inside page of a book, there is a phrase similar to “Made in USA May 2018, Charleston, SC.” This is likely the first printing (manufacture) date, and we code the publication date as in #3 above.
