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

<a href="">doi:10.5284/1000332</a>

Medieval Industry

D W Crossley (editor)

CBA Research Report No 40 (1981)

ISBN 0 906780 07 1


Title page of report 40

The spread of topics discussed in the following pages forms apt comment on certain achievements and problems in medieval archaeology. There has been, for example, no difficulty in securing contributions in the fields of ceramics or glass, metal smelting and smithing, or milling. Metal smelting and grain milling logically extended to the early use of power. Yet both in planning and in retrospect there are fields where further work is seen to be necessary, such as textile manufacture. It was decided that here, in present circumstances, there was much to be said for setting out with a contribution on the major raw materials, wool, as a basis for future discussion of processes in which it was used.
