DEPEW, J. N., & JONES, C. L. (1992). A library, media, and archival preservation glossary. Alphabetical list, source cited at end of scope note, related terms in bold in scope note. Preface: " The purpose of this glossary is to bring together many of the terms that relate to the conservation and preservation of archival, library and media center materials, many of which are scattered in articles, books, dictionaries, glossaries, and reports throughout the literature of preservation. The terms are drawn not only form the field of library and information science, but from the binding, paper, photographic and preservation reformatting literature, as well. The glossary also contains building, HVAC, insurance and statistical terms that are useful in understanding those aspects of the preservation of informational materials".

The AAT is a thesaurus containing generic terms, dates, relationships, sources, and notes for work types, roles, materials, styles, cultures, techniques, and other concepts related to art, architecture, and other cultural heritage (e.g., amphora, oil paint, olieverf, acetolysis, sintering, orthographic drawings, Olmeca, Rinascimento, Buddhism, watercolors, asa-no-ha-toji, sralais). "The four Getty vocabularies are intended to provide terminology and other information about the objects, artists, concepts, and places important to various disciplines that specialize in art, architecture, and material culture. The AAT contains generic terms; it contains no iconographic subjects and no proper names. That is, each concept is a case of many (a generic thing), not a case of one (a specific thing). For example, the generic term cathedral is in the AAT, but the specific proper name Chartres Cathedral is out of scope for the AAT (it would be included in CONA instead)."

ROBERTS, M., ETHERINGTON, D., & BROWN, M. R. (1982). Bookbinding and the conservation of books: a dictionary of descriptive terminology. Entries arranged alphabetically. References at the end of each entry. Small number of images at end. Search facility. References via link. Preface: " Although this dictionary is intended first and foremost for those actively involved in one or more aspects of the overall field of bookbinding and book conservation, including bookbinders, conservators of library and archival materials, and the like, it is perhaps no less intended for those working in related fields, such as bibliography and librarianship, where the many terms and expressions relating to the overall field may be less familiar and even more confusing... The definitions themselves, .., were, whenever possible, drawn from the most authoritative sources available (as indicated by the number in parentheses at the end of a definition, which refers to the Sources and Bibliography section) and supplemented by the experience of the authors. Even though the bibliography and sources cited represent but a relatively small segment of the extensive corpus of literature in the field of conservation, we believe they provide a reasonably good sampling and may benefit the reader by offering an authoritative source for the terms and sometimes providing a source for further investigation. Definitions that do not cite a source are entirely the responsibility of the authors. Where a term has more than one definition, each is numbered and arranged in its descending order of significance in relation to bookbinding."

Also DYE ANALYSIS section of CAMEO. "This new resource is seminal to the scientific art analysis world because it provides critical analytical parameters for the analysis of synthetic and natural dyes using state-of-the-art liquid chromatographic and mass spectrometric equipment. The site is organized into categories of Natural and Synthetic Dyes with sub-categories of dyes found on cultural artifacts."

COMITÉ SCIENTIFIQUE INTERNATIONAL PIERRE, & VERGÈS-BELMIN, V. (2010). Illustrated glossary on stone deterioration patterns. Paris, ICOMOS. (ICOMOS) "The ISCS glossary constitutes an important tool for scientific discussions on decay phenomena and processes. It is also an excellent basis for tutorials on stone deterioration. It is based on the careful examination of pre-existing glossaries of English terms. It does not aim at replacing these glossaries, often set up originally in a language other than English, and for most of them done to a high standard." "The glossary is arranged into 6 families composed of 2 to 11 terms : General terms, Crack and deformation, Detachment, Features induced by material loss, Discoloration and deposit, Biological colonization."

Website:"Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging is a structured and controlled list of object terms organized in a classification system to provide a basis for indexing and cataloging collections of human-made objects. Nomenclature is used in the creation and management of object records in human history collections within museums and other organizations, and it focuses on objects relevant to North American history and culture. Nomenclature is the most extensively used museum classification and controlled vocabulary for historical and ethnological collections in North America... Nomenclature is already built into most major commercial museum collections management systems used in North America. It can also be used by museums with custom-built databases or spreadsheets and even by museums without computerized cataloging systems."
