LOAN POLICIES:

A. Requestor Eligibility 
The borrower must have an institutional affiliation. Individuals without such affiliation may borrow only when they are sponsored by an individual with such an affiliation, and agree to study the material at the sponsor's institution. In such cases, loans will be sent to the sponsor at the sponsor's institutional address. The loaned material may not leave the sponsor’s institution.

Loan requests for student and postdoctoral fellow use need to be requested and cosigned by their advisor. Additionally, researchers visiting other institutions may request loans for use at that institution, but the request must come from a resident curator or collection manager from that institution. Ultimate responsibility of the specimens is assumed by the institution to which the specimens are loaned.

New requests are filled only after past loans are returned. Requests from individuals with histories of not returning, losing, or breaking specimens will be rejected on those grounds. 

B. Specimen Eligibility
In most cases, loan requests for primary types, historically important, endangered, threatened, or are rare in the MCZ’s collection or generally rare in museum collections will not be loaned.

We do not lend more than half of any taxonomic group at any time.  If you wish to inspect more than half of the specimens from any group we will send the specimens in batches.  Each batch will be sent only when the previous batch has been returned.  Researchers are requested to consider the practicalities involved in responding to requests for large numbers of specimens, or material that is very large. In these cases, you may be required to visit the MCZ to use the specimens.

C. Specimen Use and Care
The borrower assumes responsibility for the care of specimens.  Specimens are loaned to a specific person for a specific purpose.  Specimens are not to be used by any other person(s) and or for any purpose other than what is outlined in the approved research proposal.  Specimens are not to be altered in any way including physically, tag removal, and or number erasure.  Never discard anything that arrives with a specimen even paper that appears to be blank. Destructive sampling is prohibited without express written permission from the Curatorial Associate.
 
All borrowed specimens are to be kept in association with their labels, the yellow loan form, and other accompanying data.  Specimens will be stored in a secure facility. While in that facility the specimens will be stored in secure, pest, and dust proof containers.  Improper specimen care while on loan evidenced by loss or damage, could impact future loan requests by the borrower, his/her lab, or the institution more generally.

D. Loan Details
Once the loan request is received, it is discussed at the weekly departmental meeting.  The loan will either be approved, denied, or additional information will be requested.  Approved loans are processed in the order they are received.  

Upon the loan’s arrival the recipient is required to review the blue loan form for both inventory and specimen condition.  Amend as necessary, sign, and return the blue loan form in a timely manner. Failure to return the form could jeopardize publication copyright or future loan requests. The Yellow form should stay with the specimens at all times.  The Pink form is your receipt.

Specimens are ordinarily loaned for a period of six months. Borrowers are requested to return all specimens as soon as possible upon completion of their research. Partial returns are acceptable.  If the specimens are needed for longer than six months, it is the responsibility of the borrower to contact the Curatorial Associate in writing to request an extension. Request for an extension must be made before the current loan period expires.  

Loans may not be moved between institutions without prior permission. It is the responsibility of the borrower to notify the MCZ curatorial staff of any change in their address in a timely manner so appropriate measure can be taken.

Specimen transfer to another individual or institution is prohibited.

E. Shipping
The MCZ ships loans via Fed Ex, or equivalent international shipper, paying postage and insurance for outbound loan shipments. The borrower will ship the loan via Fed Ex paying postage and insurance for inbound loan shipments. Please be aware that we do not ship or receive specimens during the month of December.

If a specimen is hand carried, the borrower will either hand carry the specimens back to the MCZ or ship the loan via Fed Ex paying postage and insurance for inbound loan shipments. 

The specimens should be packed for return with the packing materials with which they were received unless those materials are deemed inappropriate because of damage.  The yellow loan form should be enclosed with the returned loan.  Please ship specimens to: 

Mark Omura
Museum of Comparative Zoology, Mammalogy
Harvard University
52 Oxford Street 
Room B-215
Cambridge, MA 02138

F. Copyright and Publications
Credit for any use of MCZ material should be given in resulting publications. Publications should include a table that lists MCZ voucher numbers and reprints should be sent to the Department of Mammalogy.

Permission to photograph, CT scan, or otherwise image loaned specimens must be specifically requested in the loan request. Please review the Permissions & Copyright Policy for more information.  Copies of all images must be sent to the Mammalogy department.  Please read the guidelines for submitting digital media.

Fluid Specimen Loans

Fluid specimen loan requests should be submitted to Mark Omura, the Curatorial Associate in Mammalogy, for approval.  Fluid specimens are typically whole animals fixed in Formalin and stored in 70% ethanol. Our holding can be queried on line through our database, MCZbase
