        <td>It may be necessary to distinguish the date
        submitted from the date created or issued for theses
        and dissertations or reviewed articles. Often these
        resources are not made available at the same time of
        submission. There are numerous projects in libraries
        that make available theses and dissertations where this
        date is important to distinguish.</td>
