While importing data from different sources, can the pandas library recognize dates?

It is possible to parse dates when reading data into pandas, but you may need to specify the parse_dates argument and potentially provide a custom date parser function. This can be necessary if the data contains date-time values in different formats that are not natively supported by pandas. You can use a lambda function to build a custom date parser that can handle the various formats present in the data. This allows you to properly read and interpret the dates when reading the data into pandas
