CAMEO: A free Internet reference on materials used in the production and conservation of historic and artistic works by Michele Derrick

The Conservation and Art Materials Encyclopedia Online (CAMEO) is an electronic database of terms, materials and techniques used in all aspects of conservation and production of artistic, architectural, archaeological, and anthropological materials. CAMEO consolidates text and images for the use, understanding, and identification of materials and delivers the merged information to diverse audiences via the Internet. CAMEO increases access to formerly obscure information, creates a historical context for the use of materials in art conservation, and provides a chronological record of materials as they are developed or changed. Produced by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, CAMEO is a free service for the benefit of professional conservators, the museum community, and the general public.
