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 Definitions that do not cite a source are entirely the responsibility of the authors.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."

CAMEO is a searchable information resource developed by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The MATERIALS database contains chemical, physical, visual, and analytical information on historic and contemporary materials used in the production and conservation of artistic, architectural, archaeological, and anthropological materials.

RAINER, L., GRAVES, K., MAEKAWA, S., GITTINS, M., & PIQUÉ, F. (2017). Conservation of the architectural surfaces in the tablinum of the House of the Bicentenary, Herculaneum: phase 1, examination, investigations, and condition assessment. Getty Summary: " The Herculaneum Project for the conservation of the architectural surfaces in the tablinum of the House of the Bicentenary (Casa del Bicentenario) is a pilot project, undertaken by the Getty Conservation Institute in collaboration with the Herculaneum Conservation Project and the Archaeological Park of Herculaneum, to study and conserve the wall paintings and mosaic pavement in this room as an example of a conservation methodology that can be used for similar surfaces on other archaeological sites in the Vesuvian region. This project report documents the examination, investigations, and condition assessment carried out in the tablinum of the House of the Bicentenary during Phase I of the project (2011–16). Chapters include: Description of Architectural Surfaces; Reconstruction and Remounting Materials and Techniques of the Wall Paintings; Previous Interventions (1939–2011); Environmental Assessment; Scientific Report on the Wall Paintings; and Conditions of the Wall Paintings. The chapters incorporate photographic and graphic documentation illustrating the material discussed. Also included in the report are an illustrated glossary of terms and a selected bibliography of references related to the topic. Chapters 1 - 6 excavation report. Followed by 'Illustrated Glossary, Architectural surfaces in the tablinium of the House of the Bicentenary' "This illustrated glossary of documentation terms establishes the vocabulary used to graphically record physical evidence of original technique, previous interventions, and conditions, observed or undertaken during the study of the wall paintings in the tablinum of the House of the Bicentenary at the archaeological site of Herculaneum from 2012 to the present. For each term, the glossary provides a definition, the symbol used in the graphic documentation, and a representative image. Condition definitions are based on visible examination and scientific research. This glossary is a working document. It is intended to be updated as necessary."

ASH, N., HOMOLKA, S., LUSSIER, S., POLLAK, R., SPAULDING, E., & WOLCOTT, R. (2014). Descriptive terminology for works of art on paper: guidelines for the accurate and consistent description of the materials and techniques of drawings, prints, and collages. Guidelines for the accurate and consistent description of the materials and techniques of drawings, prints, and collages. Philadelphia Museum of Art summary: "The guidelines presented in this e-publication address the need for more accurate and consistent documentation of the materials and techniques used to create works of art on paper, and are designed to provide museum professionals charged with describing prints and drawings with a step by step approach to describing all aspects of their manufacture. No detailed guide for this has previously existed. Works of art on paper - Western tradition. "Descriptive Terminology provides a step-by-step approach to identifying and recording information about the materials and manufacture of works of art on paper, and to recording, updating, and adapting media descriptions stored in collections databases. Its users—conservators, curators, registrars, catalogers, and others charged with accurately describing artworks— will bring different levels of knowledge and connoisseurship to the task. The guidelines contained in this publication are intended to help any of them write more meaningful and accurate descriptions through the use of consistent terminology and syntax, regardless of the level of detail ascertained about an artwork. While Descriptive Terminology focuses on art on paper in the Western tradition, many of its guidelines will likely have more universal application." Conservators, curators and other users bring different types of knowledge and connoisseurship to the task, and the publication also aims to guide those with less experience or without direct access to the physical artworks in recording information that is accurate regardless of level of detail. Another goal is to facilitate recording materials information in museum collections databases – a primary source for collections information on the web. We hope that the impact of Descriptive Terminology for Works of Art on Paper will be to: Provide a comprehensive resource for professionals in the fine arts Enhance the ability of conservators to communicate their knowledge about the material aspects of works of art on paper Contribute to the education and visual experience of the online and museum visitor 182 pages.

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."
