Exhibition Loan Guidelines

Loan of Collection Materials for Exhibition

Institutions and units interested in borrowing Cushing Library collection materials for exhibition purposes should contact Dr. Francesca Marini (Programming and Outreach Librarian, Cushing Memorial Library and Archives) for information about the loan process (fmarini@library.tamu.edu or 979-458-7887).

Loan periods will be finite and will be discussed on a case-by-case basis. Borrowing institutions and units are encouraged to discuss exhibition ideas early in the planning stages. The list of requested items should be finalized within the following timeframe:

  • Requests for five or fewer items should be submitted for consideration six months before the exhibition’s planned opening date.
  • Requests for more than five items need to be submitted for consideration one year before opening date.

Reasonable exceptions will be considered by the Director on a case-by-case basis.
