Dear Art Educators,

This was featured in Scout Report today....

5. CAMEO: Conservation & Art Material Encyclopedia Online
http://cameo.mfa.org/index.asp

Art historians, preservationists, and other types will be most glad to learn
about the existence of the Conservation and Art Materials Encyclopedia
Online (CAMEO). This is, of course, if they don't know about it already. The
original CAMEO was first placed online in November 2000, and it has been
significantly enlarged and updated over the past several years. This online
resource contains chemical, physical, visual, and analytical information on
over 10,000 historic and contemporary materials used in the production and
conservation of artistic, architectural, archaeological, and anthropological
materials. While some visitors may wish to use the embedded search engine,
some may just wish to browse the materials by letter. Visitors can also
perform a material search by entering a word, partial word, or a variety of
other fields, including composition, density, and boiling point. [KMG]
