Dear George,

I think this is a very good idea. There are thousands of archaeological 
publications listing items etc. of certain types, often with reference 
to museums keeping them, but library practice will only register overall 
aboutness. Museum records cite such publications explicitly, but the 
inverse has never been exploited systematically.
