    Dear Colleagues,

    I invite you to join me for a free webinar; How to Deaccession.

    Deaccessioning is a hot topic and one that's come up with increasing  frequency as the museum and archives fields reconsider the shape of their collections. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives are driving change at all levels, including what we collect and how, and inspiring new areas of acquisition. At the same time, many institutions continue to grapple with limited resources. Both realities are serving as a vice and are forcing deaccessioning to the forefront for many collection managers. While deaccessioning is a healthy activity for any collection, the act of disposing of anything can seem taboo and carries the risk of upsetting stakeholders if not handled with care. This webinar will walk through how we got here, and why deaccessioning is an important aspect of our work. We'll then cover deaccession principles, constructing a policy, and how to gently handle the feelings that can come with the act of disposal.
