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.
The updated Crossref DOI Display guidelines recommend that DOIs should be displayed in the following format:
Council for British Archaeology (2006) Defence of Britain Archive [data-set]. York: Archaeology Data Service [distributor] https://doi.org/10.5284/1000327
The database is divided into two sections. Choose one of the following record sets to search:
The Anti-Invasion Database provides the full text of information recorded. It also includes references to material in the paper archive as well as elements which have been digitised. Some 2000 photographs, in fact, have been scanned, but an estimated further 6,500 remain with the original paper records. The full site data on a defence component listed in 'Beaches, Fields, Streets, and Hills' (the research report of the Defence Areas Project) can be obtained by entering its unique numerical reference into the search box below.
When choosing the type of site to search for you can either use the pick from thesaurus option which will show you the hierarchical structure of the classification or choose from the drop down menu which contains all the terms in alphabetical order. Whichever method you use will return all the site types from that class and from all its sub classes as well.
