The Curator Branch Artifact Loan Program is now open to consider new loan requests. Prospective borrowers must contact the loan program with their request at least 120 days prior to the desired start of a potential loan. Please follow the guidelines for requesting a loan on the "Loan Programs" page. The artifact loan program continues to be run on a first-come first-serve basis. Inquiries that were received during the closure of the program will be given first priority. We appreciate your patience with the re-opening of the loan program.
