I have just run a collection analysis with Follet's Titlewise.  In looking at my 
"Collection by Year" I got very concerned with several books that had a very low 
copyright date.  I went to the shelf and pulled the books and then looked at my 
MARC record.  It seems that Titlewave looks at the original copyright date (the one 
in the brackets) instead of the publishing date.

Does anyone know if there is a way to switch this?  I am concerned that these 
original copyright dates are drastically effecting the overall age of my collection 
in these specific sections.  I don't feel this is an adequate representation of the 
age of the collection.  Maybe others disagree?  If so why?

Thanks for your thoughts and input on this.
