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.


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:

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="">doi:10.5284/1000333</a>

The preservation of buildings of historic interest. A note on the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947

Council for British Archaeology

CBA Occasional Papers No. 2 (1953)


Title page of report 2

In 1950 the Council issued a Memorandum on the Ancient Monuments Acts. This summary of the new and extensive powers given under the Town Planning Act has been prepared in the hope that members of the Council and other interested bodies will make full use of the opportunities which this Act provides for the protection and preservation of buildings of architectural and historic interest. The purpose of this summary is primarily informative but the occasion is also taken to draw attention to weaknesses in the present position which, it is hoped, will in due course be amended.


  • Introduction (p 1)
  • The Listing of buildings of architectual or historic merit (pp 1-3)
  • The operation of the preservation clauses of the 1947 Act (pp 3-6)
  • Some unsolved difficulties (pp 6-8)
  • Action to be taken to save a threatened building (pp 8-10)
  • The position in Scotland (p 11)
  • Relevant documents (p 12)
