More information: A policy that addresses the disposal, trade, or sale of any collection item is an essential document for every museum, historic house or other collecting organization. And, paid and unpaid staff plus committee and board members need to be well-informed of that policy.
In this StEPs Lab, Ellen Endslow, Director of Collections/Curator for the Chester County Historical Society, West Chester, Pennsylvania, will address important points about deaccessioning, what a policy should cover, and how to avoid getting into deep deaccession trouble.
Paid and unpaid staff and board members from organizations of all sizes, especially smaller ones, will want to take part in this online event. Participants enrolled in AASLH’s StEPs program will also benefit from Ellen’s comments on how they can meet deaccessioning-related performance indicators.
What are StEPs Labs?
Participation in StEPs Labs provides in-depth information on topics central to the operation of your museum, historic house or site. Applying what you learn in a Lab to your organization’s policies and practices means you are making meaningful progress in the StEPs program. The more boxes you check off, the more progress you make. The more progress you make, the more StEPs certificates you earn!
