Deaccesioning picture

The Longmeadow Historical Society and Storrs Library present an evening with William Hosley of Terra Firma Northeast. Mr. Hosley will speak on Responsible Strategic Deaccessioning.




Deaccessioning is a complex and potentially controversial process that can be handled responsibly, gracefully and to the benefit of your organization.

As a longtime curator and museum director Bill Hosley has bought and sold millions of dollars in collections; strategically pruned and improved collections; wrote and presented on the ethics and practical aspects of deaccessioning, and has negotiated with dealers, auction houses, and other museums.
