Loans for exhibitions

The UBL participates in national and international exhibitions.

Request for exhibition loans

Whenever possible the library will lend items from our collections to your exhibition. This exhibition in question has to be related to events of a scientific or cultural nature. 
It is important that your exhibition should be held under the correct conditions for precious and vulnerable works of art. We do require a formal written loan request at least six months in advance of the exhibition. 

This written request should contain the following information: 

  • Title and exhibition dates.
  • Full object description with the shelf mark or reference number.
  • Contact name, telephone number and e-mail address.

Once we have consented to your request we will send you the loan contract where you can find all the agreements and conditions. 
Please read our terms and conditions of exhibition loans
