Loans

Loans are made to institutions not individuals. Loan correspondence shall originate from an official representative of the borrowing institution and responses will be made to that individual. The borrowing institution must have facilities to properly house and care for museum objects. Loans are made for a six-month period. The MSU Museum does not issue permanent or indefinite loans. Certain categories of artifacts are never loaned; these include rare, fragile, unique, artifacts and type specimens.

Loan requests are made using the Loan Request form, should be directed to the Collections Manager and are subject to curatorial approval.
