Assuming we can accommodate those needs and the decision is made to accept the item, a receipt is prepared and sent to the donor for signature.. The item is then carefully cleaned, its condition is inspected, and a report is prepared.. The item is assigned a unique number, all required paperwork is collected into an accession file, and the object is either stored or displayed.. If the item is displayed, its condition is a factor in determining and preparing the proper mounting system or display case for the item..
