Book description
Museumwise Lending Library Summary:

Although deaccessioning may be broadly accepted today within the museum community as an all-but-routine aspect of collections management, to much of the public it remains at odds with what people conceive the museum to be: a permanent repository, a great barrel of amber in which things-once dropped-will be forever preserved. When a museum proposes today to deaccession one or more significant objects from its collection, it is all but inevitable that a considerable degree of public discussion will follow. The museum that intends to deaccession must be well prepared for the discussion. By bringing together in one place a substantial number if English-language texts concerning deaccessioning that have been published over the past two decades, this volume in intended to assist those who may be responsible for the establishment, design or execution of a deaccessioning program.
