Objects from the holdings of the Austrian National Library can be loaned for the purpose of an exhibition with the consent of the current director of the Department. A written request with details of the desired objects (if possible with call numbers) is to be sent to the director of the relevant Collection, with the following information:
- The name of the borrower
- The title of the exhibition
- The place and duration of the exhibition.
Loans for exhibitions require in every case a written contractual agreement (» Lending Agreement).
The costs that are foreseen for loans to exhibitions are to be found in the » Provisional cost estimate for loans.
The following deadlines are to be observed:
- Approval of the loan request by the ANL
at least 6 months before the start of the exhibition
- Return of the signed loan contract
at least 1 month before transport of the objects
- Insurance policies
at least 8 days before transport of objects
We draw your attention to the fact that orders for reproduction of copies from catalogues must be placed in the relevant Department independently of the » Lending Agreement.
