After you have chosen a spectrophotometer that meets your needs, you
may want to look at my article regarding interpretation of the data.
The citation for this article is as follows:

"Statistics Without Anesthesia: Interpretation of Color Data," The
Broad Spectrum: Studies in the Materials, Techniques, and
Conservation of Color on Paper, Harriet K. Stratis and Britt
Salvesen, ed. Archetype Publications, London, 2002, pp. 230-235.

In that article, I mention the availability of an Excel template
that we designed to assist interpretation of your data. This
template can be downloaded as follows:
