In response to Barbara Appelbaum's suggestions for Allister Guy's
request on the use of propolis by conservators, I would like to
suggest an additional source of information. BCIN, the international
bibliographic database on conservation is available from the
Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN). It is now available
(by subscription) on the World Wide Web at .

I searched "propolis" in the subject box and retrieved 13 documents.
(The subject search looks in the titles, subject keywords and
abstracts for the words selected). Of the 13 documents found, 10 of
them were originally published in AATA. There were also 2 references
from CAL and one from the ICCROM Library.

There are seven contributors to BCIN, including AATA, the
Conservation Analytical Laboratory, the ICCROM Library, the Canadian
Conservation Institute Library, the UNESCO-ICOM Museum Information
Centre, the ICOMOS Documentation Centre and the Getty Conservation
Institute Library. There are over 150,000 records in the database,
relating to conservation of cultural property. Although there is
English access through a translated title field, abstracts and
subject keywords, over half of the documents are in languages other
than English.

We find BCIN, like AATA, an invaluable information resource.
