I received a large folder of documents related to my father after his death in 1994. As part of my transition from TMG to RM, I am including scans of some of the documents as evidence of various events/facts in his life. When adding the media, there is a date field in the Properties. Initially I was just entering the date I made the scan but further thought said maybe it should be a date from the media [if there is one] or when the document came into my possession.
How could/should/would this date be used?
