Collections and Deaccessioning in a Post-Pandemic World is about far more than deaccessioning. It′s about how museums will be - must be - different after Covid-19. About a transformed environment, both social and financial, and museums′ total response to it. In a changed and charged reality, deaccessioning is one element of a future in which issues of social justice, inequality, race, pay and decolonisation will impact collections as never before.
Collections and Deaccessioning in a Post-Pandemic World is a major new 950-page resource which draws on the experience and thinking of some of the world′s most experienced and respected museum professionals, with a Foreword by Melody Kanschat and Antoniette M Guglielmo of the Museum Leadership Institute.
It consists of three volumes:
1. Conversations with Museum Directors
2. Towards a New Reality
3. Case Studies
