This policy outlines the collections scope for The Mount’s (the former home of Edith Wharton) prop collection and permanent collection.

The scope of the prop collection is particularly useful for organizations who own teaching collections and need to define what those collections will include.

The policy overviews in detail the acquisition and deaccessioning policies for the prop and permanent collections, incoming and outgoing loan policies, guidelines for maintaining the collection, and documentation of the permanent collection.
