Hi Mariana,

The "datestamp" tag content comes from the "lastModified" metadata that
is added automatically by Greenstone when you build a collection. This
lastModified value is obtained from the operating system, and is usually
the last time the file was edited. However, if the file has been copied
(for example if you used the GLI to add the file into your collection)
then the lastModified value will probably be the time the file was copied.

You're right that dc.Date metadata will be used instead of lastModified
for the datestamp tag, if it exists. I think this is to allow you to set
the datestamp value if the automatic (lastModified) value is incorrect.

Regards,

Michael
