Reply To: Record-Keeping of Transferred/Donated Items

Ronald Heroux

I file donation records chronologically and record that information in the accession record (computerized). My ultimate intent is to print a file copy of every accession record (3-ring binder). One could record the accession number on the donation document, though sometimes such number could be changed and that would add yet another correction to be made. For deaccessioned items I merely record that fact/reason on the donation form (retained).
