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:10.5284/1000332

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/10.5284/1000332

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:10.5284/1000332. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1000332">doi:10.5284/1000332</a>

Notes on the investigation of smaller domestic buildings

CBA Research Report No 3 (1955)

Prepared by the CBA Post-Medieval Research Committee


Abstract

Title page of report 3

Present conditions are causing extensive demolition and rebuilding in town and country alike, and this at a time when historians are looking more and more to architecture as a source of evidence for the economic and social life of the past. The changes themselves are largely inevitable, but if buildings can be recorded before the work begins the historical evidence will be in large measure saved. The only official bodies responsible for such work - the National Buildings Record and its Scottish counterpart - lack the resources to record properly every manor-house, much less every farm-house and cottage. These notes have been compiled in the hope that people who are untrained in the study of architecture, but who are interested in the history of their county or parish, may be willing to assist in salvaging evidence just as valuable as that derived from documents and even more liable to destruction. The buildings most in need of record are the smaller farm-houses, often now merely cottages, which on examination will frequently be found to have a long history extending back to the late sixteenth century. The succeeding paragraphs are written with such structures, often of several periods, in mind.
