Deaccessioning and disposal

Responsible Deaccessioning and disposal takes place as part in the context of a museum’s long-term collections development policy. Reasons for deaccessioning and disposal might include: objects damaged beyond further use; repatriation of human remains or sacred objects; or transferring duplicate objects to another museum. In this bitesize session we will review the Spectrum 5.0 Deaccessioning and disposal procedure, which can help your museum manage and document this process. We will refer to the Museums Association disposals toolkit, discuss methods of disposals and decision making.

Priority for this session will be given to staff and volunteers at Accredited museums, and those working towards, within the London Museum Development region.
