I need to display the date of access for the websites cited in my dissertation. I've used urldate = {} , but it does not actually display any date. I only get the date printed when I use date = {}.

You can see my MWE below. The first bib entry has urldate = {}. The second entry with the key janzvat49 has the date = {}.

So,

  • Why is urldate not working
  • How do I get it to say Accessed on <date>.
    • It needs to come after the title and before the url preceded and followed by commas.
    • And for the bibliography, same place but preceded and followed by periods.

According to the biblatex-sbl documentation

The SBLHS discourages the use of access dates. [See SBLHS §6.1.6, 84.]

so urldate is not shown by default, but you can use the option

accessdate

to get urldate printed.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{polyglossia}
\setmainlanguage[variant=us]{english}
\SetLanguageKeys{english}{indentfirst=true}
\usepackage[style=sbl, accessdate]{biblatex}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@online{janzvat,
  author  = {Janz, Timothy},
  title   = {Greek Paleography: From Antiquity to the Renaissance: 2. Introduction to Minuscule Bookhands},
  url     = {https://spotlight.vatlib.it/greek-paleography/feature/2-introduction-to-minuscule-bookhands},
  urldate = {2022-02-11}
}
\end{filecontents}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}

\begin{document}
Text\autocite{janzvat}

\printbibliography
\end{document}
