I have recently worked on various documents which were architectural
drawings on transparent paper from the British Library's India
Office collections and I am aware of that there aren't many
articles/info written on this subject.

I could suggest Sally Ann Yates's article "The Conservation of
Nineteenth-Century Tracing Paper" which was published in "The Paper
Conservator" Volume 8 in 1984. She includes a short bibliography of
publications containing useful information on tracing paper. Chris
Cheffins had also presented a paper on "Tracing cloth, a history of
its manufacture and use, inherent problems as a support and some
treatment considerations" during the Society of Archivist
Conservation Training Conference in Aberystwyth-Wales last
September. This was also used for architectural drawings.
