Spectrum discussion – Loans in and Loans out

Spectrum discussions are focussed on sharing practice between organisations and individuals. This is an opportunity to informally chat with sector colleagues about how your museum approaches a Spectrum procedure, get feedback, troubleshoot a scenario, and ask questions of each other.

The topic for this discussion is Loans in and Loans out:

Loans in – managing objects you borrow for a fixed period of time and for a specific purpose.

Loans out – assessing requests for you to lend your objects and managing the lending process until loans are returned to you.
