Ink corrosion database

Databases in MS Access and Filemaker Pro have been developed for the visual assessment and documentation of historical documents and drawings corroded by aggressive inks. They contain scanned images, accompanied by a detailed description by conservators. The objects are rated into four damage categories. The databases will enable conservators to evaluate the ink corroded documents and drawings in their collections in a reliable way. For the Teyler Museum, the Filemaker Pro database is an important tool in accessing detailed information about the inks used in drawings in the museum's collection.
