In the LCPS for there is an example showing an optional inclusion of a copyright date in addition to a probable publishing date and in the example the value for 008/06 Type of date is “t.”

Subject: [PCCLIST] Question re: RDA, 264 at DtSt ff


Under AACR2 we didn't usually set 008/06 to "t" (Publication date and copyright date) unless there was a large gap between the two.  Is that no longer true under RDA? I've noticed several new pcc-created RDA records that code 008/06 to "t" and code publication and copyright separately even when they are the same year.
