accessed variable

Hi all,

Could someone tell me where data in the “accessed” variable comes from? I realize it’s a date, but what does it represent? An example of how Zotero uses it might put things in context.



In my understanding you typically use it to indicate the date you accessed a
source that may change over time, e.g. a website. E.g.
the following example citation for the IEEE style:
