Deaccessioning

The process of disposing, selling or trading objects from a museum collection. There may be ethical issues to consider when deaccessioning since many donors of objects typically expect the museum to care for them in perpetuity. The practice at some museums dictates that funds from a deaccessioned work can only be used to purchase another artwork.
