Few issues that museums face are as complex as deaccessioning - the permanent removal of an accessioned object from a museum's collection. One must simultaneously consider such factors as mission and collections policy, legal and ethical restrictions, donors' wishes, and the public interest. This book is intended to assist those who are responsible for developing a deaccession program. Includes collections disposal policies from several museums, as well as statements from professional organizations, including AAM, AAMD, and AASLH.
