An overview of the Spectrum 5.0 procedures for borrowing and lending objects

Trainer: Lindsay Duncan, Outreach Officer, Collections Trust

Suitable for: Trustees, staff and volunteers responsible for managing and documenting loans.

This session will explore the management and documentation involved when borrowing and lending objects, using the Spectrum 5.0 procedures as a framework:

Loans in – managing objects you borrow for a fixed period of time and for a specific purpose.

Loans out – assessing requests for you to lend your objects and managing the lending process until loans are returned to you.

There will opportunities to discuss with colleagues, ask questions throughout and submit questions in advance.

By the end of the session, delegates will:

• Understand the role of the Spectrum standard, and its supporting guidance, in relation to museum Accreditation.

• Understand policy considerations for borrowing and lending.

• Understand the Spectrum requirements for Loans in and Loans out.

• Know where to find more information and guidance.

Before the session:

• If possible, read what Spectrum has to say about Loans in – including the standard and suggested procedure.

• If possible, read what Spectrum has to say about Loans out – including the standard and suggested procedure.

• Think about how you do things in your museum, referring to your in-house procedural manual if you have access to it, although we appreciate you might not right now. You might also find it useful to have it with you to refer to during the session.

Specific questions can be submitted prior to the session by emailing sharemuseumseast@norfolk.gov.uk
