I would like to see definitions and photographs of: Dutch hollow back vellum bindings (as described in Pugliese, Sylvia. 2001. “Stiff-Board Vellum Binding with Slotted Spine: Survey of a Historical Bookbinding Structure.” Papier Restaurierung – Mitteilungen der IADA (2, Suppl. S.). 93-101.0). --Kkelly (talk) 13:05, 30 April 2018 (CDT)

I would like to see a discussion of the treatment of shrunken parchment bindings. This was discussed in the 2018 AIC Annual talk "Branded by Fire".--Kkelly (talk) 10:51, 27 June 2018 (CDT)

Add discussion of using foamed cleaners for cleaning BPG Parchment Bookbinding or Leather, See recipe in this book: https://www.scribd.com/doc/219416439/PB-Hallebeek-Guidelines-for-the-Conservation-of-Leather-and-Parchment-Book-Bindings. Add a caution about avoiding Triton X, link to Sustainable Solvent Use for explanation.--Kkelly (talk) 08:51, 17 March 2020 (CDT)

Here is a reference for manuscript waste being used for binding material:--Kkelly (talk) 09:20, 14 April 2020 (CDT)

Paterson, Dan. 2018. "Treatment of Two Vellum Manuscript Waste Bindings and a Survey of Similar Bindings in American Research Libraries." In Care and Conservation of Manuscripts 16. Edited by M. J. Driscoll, 449-465. Copenhagen: Museum Tusculanum Press, University of Copenhagen.

The "cut bindings" are also called "pierced vellum". Jim Reid-Cunningham has done some work on this topic.--Kkelly (talk) 09:20, 14 April 2020 (CDT)
