Excerpt from Introduction: "Since the 1980s, the archival profession has more readily come to acknowledge reappraisal and deaccessioning as parts of good collections management practices. This is evinced in numerous case studies, institutional policies, conference sessions, and articles about reappraisal and deaccessioning.
