"Date Added" custom column?

Newb 1st post, so, be kind....
Don't know how to search threads on here = question:

Can you add/ create a column specifically for the date at which a book is added to your Calibre library?
I can usually come close to when I added, even if I can't remember the title or author.
Gratz....

Date is the Date the record (in your Library) was FIRST created (unless you have edited it).
2 other 'standard' dates are present: Published (from metadata) and Modified (column not shown by default), for any change made to that record.
#2 is subject to GIGO
#3 Almost anything can cause this to change (just stepping past in the Metadata editor)
