Preferred citation

Because each bibliography attempts to identify specific works, manuscripts, printed editions, and individuals, we recommend that scholarly studies cite their identification numbers in order to differentiate these various items unambiguously: for example, Íñigo López de Mendoza, 1st marquess of Santillana (BETA bioid 1031) vs. his grandson, Íñigo López de Mendoza y Luna, 3d marquess of Santillana and 2d duke of the Infantado (BETA bioid 3034).

The preferred citation forms are as follows:

For a work: Bibliography texid 0000:

Cantar de mió Cid (BETA texid 1109)

For a specific copy of a given work: Bibliography cnum 0000:

Cantar de mió Cid. Madrid: Biblioteca Nacional, Vitrina 7-17 (BETA cnum 1231)

For a manuscript: Bibliography manid 0000:
