AUB researchers, learners, and teaching staff

Requests to study objects in the museum or to borrow objects to take to the studio should be made in person, by phone, or by email to, giving a minimum of two working days notice.

Please note

  • Some objects may be unsuitable or unavailable for loan.
  • Objects may be borrowed for use on campus only, must be returned on the same day, and locked away when unsupervised.
  • Other than for pre-arranged taught sessions a maximum of 12 objects may be viewed or borrowed at any one time.
  • You will be required to undertake a short object handling briefing session before you borrow objects for the first time.  Please allow an extra few minutes for this when you come to collect your loan.
