Resource identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are persistent identifiers which can be used to consistently and accurately reference digital objects and/or content. The DOIs provide a way for the ADS resources to be cited in a similar fashion to traditional scholarly materials. More information on DOIs at the ADS can be found on our help page.

Citing this DOI

DOIs should be the last element in a citation irrespective of the format used. The DOI citation should begin with "doi:" in lowercase followed by the DOI with no spaces between the ":" and the DOI.

doi:10.5284/1000333

DOIs can also be cited as a persistent link from another Web page. This is done by appending the DOI Resolver with the DOI. This would look like:

http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1000333

However, if it is possible it is best to hide the URL in the href property of the <a> tag and have the link text be of the form doi:10.5284/1000333. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1000333">doi:10.5284/1000333</a>

Abstract

Title page of report 13

The Working Party was convened in 1977 as a sub-committee of the Industrial Archaeology Research Committee. It was asked in its initial brief to consider recommending national standards in recording of industrial monuments as it was appreciated that drawings which already exist, or which will be completed during the next few years, form an increasingly important archive of primary source material for industrial archaeologists and historians, particularly as sites continue to be destroyed. The definition of minimum standards to which site recording should be done would aid those bodies which commission and fund recording.

Early on in its deliberations the Working Party realized that no single guide adequately covered the many diverse aspects of industrial recording or indicated the standards to which records should be produced. There was therefore a need for a manual to assist the staff of local authority planning departments and other institutions, groups and individuals involved in survey and recording of industrial sites and the Working Party would strongly recommend that the Council for British Archaeology itself consider publishing such a manual.

As part way towards the production of such a manual, the Working Party now offers this report which reviews the current developments at the three main levels of recording, comments on the techniques of recording which receive scant attention elsewhere, suggests a range of useful glossaries and general texts, and offers advice on the production and deposition of records.
