Deaccessioning in the Netherlands
The Netherlands is a country in the North-West of Europe. It has implemented deaccessioning and disposal as tool over 20 years ago.
It now has a law formalizing deaccessioning and has developed its third guideline on deaccessioning in 2016. Next to this, it has developed other tools, such as collections assessment tools and a digital database for museums to present their to be disposed objects. It certainly adheres to the pragmatic way of thinking the Anglo-Saxon tradition does.
