ABSTRACT

Prior to the 1980's, reappraisal and deaccessioning were considered as an “anti-archival” activity. Recently, however, many archivists have come to realize that a reappraisal and deaccessioning is essential to providing better access to more important records and to strengthen and refine holdings. To develop a program with strong and well-focused holding appropriate to the purpose and environments of archives, archives have to carry out systematic and continuing procedure to reevaluate past appraisal. This study explores the various main issues and opinions with regard to reappraisal and deaccessioning and then, suggests the reappraisal principles and deaccessioning procedures such as return of the materials to donor, transfer to more appropriate depository, destruction of the material.
