CAMEO: Conservation & Art Material Encyclopedia Online
CAMEO is under construction
We are working to bring you a new and better version of CAMEO. It has been placed on a wiki platform, but several transfer issues are still being resolved.
Once the new CAMEO is up and running, we will be asking for volunteers to become editors of the site. This will help CAMEO to grow in new directions as well as to stay current with the latest information and research on materials. Volunteer editors will be given password access to the records as well as training, if needed.
While the upgrades are being made, there may be a few days that CAMEO is offline.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. _______________________________________________________________________________________
