Loans in (borrowing objects) – scope

By accessing this resource, you agree to the Spectrum licence.

Typically, this might include objects borrowed for an exhibition or another extended activity such as a research project. Such loans should always have an end date. At the end date, you either renew the loan for a further fixed period or return the object to its owner. There should be no ‘permanent loans’ in your museum; if there are from years past you should renew them for a fixed period, try to acquire the objects, or return them.
