  • Proposed travel arrangements
  • Proposed insurance arrangements
  • Complete information for any other institutions where the object(s) will be exhibited during a traveling show, if applicable
  • A facilities report for the borrowing institution and any other venues where the object(s) will be shown, if applicable

Please submit loan requests a minimum of six months in advance of the transport date to:
