There are lots of resources available to help regional museums successfully loan and borrow objects. SHARE is particularly keen to encourage loans between national and regional museums, so if you have an idea for a loan project, please do get in touch. Visit our Projects & Grants page to see what funding may be available to your museum.
The resources below can be used to help assess your current facilities in terms of security and environmental monitoring:Loans Between National and Non-national Museums – New Standards and Practices Guidelines (NDMC) Government Indemnity Scheme – Guidelines for non-national institutions
The following downloads are produced by the UK Registrars Group and are intended to be filled out as soon as you have an idea for a loan. By working through them, it helps borrowers and lenders to identify any potential problems and to find solutions together:Standard Facilities Report Display Cases Security
