 BIBLIOGRAPHY ON USE OF BIOCIDES IN MUSEUM COLLECTIONS


The following list collects references of books, articles and web resources on the subject of use of biocides (including pesticides) in museum collections and related subjects such as health hazards, handling and mitigation strategies.
It is an up-to-date version of the Bibliography on Use of Biocides in Museum Collections compiled by Farideh Fekrsanati and Monika Harter in 2008.

This list is organised by types of publication and by dates. This hopefully makes it easy to see whe-ther a reference is included or is missing. Your input will be essential to update this bibliography. If you have information, articles or research reports relevant to this topic, which are not yet included, please send additional references, comments and suggestions to lucie.monot@ville-ge.ch or farideh.fekrsanati@markk-hamburg.de.
