The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has just launched a revised and upgraded version of its online conservation database, CAMEO (Conservation and Art Encyclopedia Online). CAMEO is "a free Internet resource that compiles and disseminates descriptive, technical, and visual information on the distinct collection of terms, materials, and techniques used in all aspects of conservation and production of artistic and historic materials". The upgrade was made possible by a 2-year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and includes a new database for information about the Forbes' Pigment Collections.
