Reply To: Deaccessioning

Hi Jessica,

I am an archaeology lab director and collections manager and have, unfortunately, had to work out deaccessioning plans a few times in the past.  If you cannot find other museums or historic societies to take the deaccessioned items, another alternative might be to put together “educational” kits or displays of some of those items that permanently go to local schools, colleges, or even local libraries.  Kind regards, Tracy Miller
