<date-in-citation> Date in Citation (in a citation)
A container element for any date that may be referenced in a citation, other than the publication date of the cited work. The @content-type attribute should be used to identify the purpose/type of date.
For example, if the <date-in-citation> element contains the date on which a contributor examined the cited work, the attribute might be “access-date”. Some online resources are changing so quickly that a citation to the resource is not complete without the date on which the cited resource was examined, since a day before or a day later the relevant material might be different. This element can be used to record such an access date.
