Reply To: Housing other Institution’s Collections

Chanin Voss Scanlon

Thanks for all of your thoughts, guys, I truly appreciate them. Unfortunately the collection has been under our roof for many years and was here before I came into this position so I do not have the luxury of not accepting the collection (although I am with you guys on that, I would certain not take the collection if I had that decision to make today…and I do not think you are overly harsh, Shannon, I think you are spot-on). I am actually very lucky that we have come to a decision on ownership and we will be working on a housing/storage agreement soon. Believe me, that is a big step forward for us as we have mostly been operating under a “gentleman’s agreement” to this point so I am thrilled. Now, getting them to sign it will be another story. 🙂

Still open for other thoughts, but until then thanks to all who responded.


p.s. btw, Shannon your situation sounds quite similar to mine. Good luck to you, I know how frustrating it is.
