Items to Be De-Accessioned

The City of Greeley Museums has produced another list of newly deaccessioned or retired items offered unconditionally with the instructions to dispose of them as is practical, preferably to another institution or cultural organization.

Greeley Museums declines items that do not meet our Mission to “preserve and interpret the history of the Colorado high plains region with an emphasis on the City of Greeley and Weld County.” By policy, the Greeley Museums may deaccession an item for several reasons, but the items offered here are from the following two categories:

1. Non-relevance: Any artifact no longer relevant or compatible with the City of Greeley Museums’ mission statement may be disposed of properly.

2. Maintenance: Any artifact that cannot be properly stored, preserved or used in a professional manner to insure its integrity may be disposed of. This situation may result from undue size, excessive quantities of similar artifacts, fragility, or other unique circumstances.

Please peruse the list located at: http://www.greeleymuseums.com/deaccessions

If you see a group of items, or even a single item that is of interest to you, please contact us as instructed in the link above.  It should be noted that interested parties must make arrangements to retrieve items, or will be responsible for the cost of shipping.

Our mission with these items now is to locate a new home for them with the intent that they will help further the mission of that Institution or Organization. Please do not wait, though, as this list will expire on September 30th, 2019 and we hope to hear from you soon!
