These books cover either Libensky's annealing methods or annealing cast lead glass:
Halem, Henry, Glass Notes: A Reference for the Glass Artist. 4th ed. Franklin Mills, OH: Franklin Mills Press, 2006. "Libensky Method of Annealing," pp. 52-53; "Libensky/Brychtova Casting Technique," pp. 67-75. (I will send these pages to you.)
Halem, Henry. Glass notes. 3rd ed. Kent, OH: Franklin Mills Press, 1996. Note: Annealing: pp. 16-23.
Stone, Graham. Firing schedules for glass: the kiln companion. St. Highett, Vic, Australia: the author, 2000. 225 pp.
Wooley's article is a good overview of annealing cast glasses:
Woolley, Frank. "Annealing Cast Glass." In: Glass: an artist's medium. Lucartha Kohler. Iola, WI: Krause Pubilcations, 1998, pp. 212-217.
I have attached a bibliography of books and articles relating to annealing glass.
