Loans can be made to faculty curators only when Senior Museum Scientist have access to the faculty curator’s lab, specimens are stored in a designated area, and specimens may be recalled at anytime.
Consult the appropriate Museum Scientist to borrow material from the collections to Faculty Curator offices and labs for ongoing research. UCMP specimens loaned to faculty may not be removed from faculty offices or labs. Specimens removed from the collection for graduate student affiliate use should be taken out in the name of the Faculty Curator. The Faculty Curator is ultimately responsible for their return to the collections upon the student’s departure.
Loans for in-house research by UCMP affiliates may be subject to recall, and UCMP affiliates are expected to make these materials available to visiting paleontologists as a professional courtesy. A “blue card” must be filled out and placed in the museum drawer upon removal of the specimen.
