Position Paper: Valuing History Collections

Assigning a monetary value to a history organization’s collections makes the collections appear to be financial assets and is counter to ethical principles espoused by the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH).

This paper addresses what it means for an organization to treat its collections as financial assets and provides guidance for implementing AASLH’s position.
