A Deaccession Reader
Stephen E. Weil
American Association of Museums, 1997 - Art - 257 pages
Good museum management requires a carefully considered decision as to whether a regular means of culling the collection serves the museum's best interest. This collection of texts drawn from journals and other professional publications looks at both positive and negative views of deaccessioning. Eleven articles focus primarily on the experiences of American museums, but also provide advice for English institutions, a case history from Canada, and an international overview of legal and professional notions about cultural property and museum collections.
