Apparently, I am always in a bit of a state of confusion, but, I will ask
anyway...

What if the item is an article that has a specific date that is not the
same as the host item? I would want the date, for citation reasons, of the
item and the date of the host -

Article is dated Feb. 4, 2003 - published in the Journal dated March 2003.

I would need the date of the article in the mods record for the article and
in the relatedItem field where I point to the host journal the date of the
entire journal.

Is this what is being discussed in this thread?

Date could be parsed -- but I'm assuming that date will be placed in the
dateType data element so it isn't being carried in the subdocument but the
main document. That's one of the areas where I think the MARC record and
most citation records differ -- the MARc record has these two levels for a
citation (document and host document) and I'm not sure it's clear that's a
good idea. It is left over from library practice. The MODS record already
is more friendly to citations than the MARC record is in some ways, but it
does put a great deal of information under the "host" field and you have
to
decide what is "host" and what is the item itself. So one question is: if
we put the date in the subdocument, does it also need to be in the
document?
