The following table lists all of the configuration options available for DateExtractor.

DateExtractor Options

There is a search interface for this metadata, which you can include in your collection by adding the statement, "format QueryInterface DateSearch" to your collection configuration file.
maximum_year The maximum historical date to be used as metadata (in a Common Era date, such as 1950). Default: 2013
maximum_century The maximum named century to be extracted as historical metadata (e.g. 14 will extract all references up to the 14th century). Default: -1
no_bibliography Do not try to block bibliographic dates when extracting historical dates.
