Admins, Content: The "Original Publication Date" refers to the date this particular version was published

The "Original Publication Date" shown in the metadata for an ebrary book refers to the date of this particular publication - not the date the book was originally published.So, for example, even though the book Moby Dick was first published well over a hundred years ago, the ebrary version is shown in the metadata with a publication date of 10/2009 – which is the date that this particular version with this particular forward, etc. was published - versus the date the book was first published, which was 10/1841.
