Loans

  1. Loans are made only to recognized institutions, not to individuals.
  2. Visitors may select specimens that they wish to borrow and set them aside for the staff to process.
  3. A letter of request (paper or email) for a loan must be sent from the borrowing institution to the Herbarium Director detailing the material to be borrowed and the individual for whom the loan is being made.
  4. The standard term for a loan is one year. Extensions made be made upon request from the borrowing institution to the Herbarium Director.
  5. Types are normally loaned for a period of six months.
  6. Loaned material is expected to be stored in metal herbarium cases and not left out in the open, in order to minimize the chance of insect infestation.
