    This website includes a collection of tabs that can take students through the history of fossil collection, the preparation and techniques for collecting, the revealing process, and the techniques for studying fossils. The site also includes three case studies of fossil collection and some materials for students who are interested in pursuing a career as a paleontologist. It provides a broad overview of what is involved in studying fossils with lots of great images.

     

    What Happens to Collected Fossils? (website)

    https://archosaurmusings.wordpress.com/2011/02/22/darren-tanke%E2%80%99s-gorgosaurus-preparation-final-roundup/

    This amazingly detailed website functions similar to a journal kept by Darren Tanke, a fossil preparatory at the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, Canada. He writes about each step in the preparation of a fossil Gorgosaurus, a relative of Tyrannosaurus. The post includes photos and descriptions of every detail, including the coverings used to protect fossils in transit, and the variable condition of bones from different field conditions.
