Include item creation date in the advanced search options for item records
We have been trying to monitor progress in retrospective cataloguing projects using the advanced search, but run into some problems with options for searching in item records.
We can quite accurately produce sets for items which were last updated within a given date range, but this isn't really fit for purpose. If a cataloguer makes a correction or re-saves at a later date then this will exclude it from retrospective counts, say for the previous month or year.
Having the option to search on item record creation date would provide a much more accurate tool for reporting on work done in a given time period. I'm sure this would have applications beyond project reporting.
