Accession & Acquisition Policy

DEFINITION: “Accessioning” is the process of creating a permanent record of an object, assemblage, or lot received from one source at one time for which the Floyd County Historical Society (FCHS) has custody, right, or title, and assigning a unique control number to said object, assembly, or lot.

Accessioned objects are held in perpetuity as long as:
•   They support the FCHS mission statement
•   They retain physical integrity, their identity, and their authenticity.
•   They can be properly stored, preserved, and used.
