If an object is received in a pre-existing unstable condition, the Lender will assume full financial responsibility for any alteration, restoration or repair necessary for exhibition purposes. Evidence of damage at the time of receipt or while in the OUAG’s custody will be reported immediately to the lender. The Lender will be requested to provide written authorization for any alteration, restoration or repair.
Unless the OUAG is notified in writing to the contrary, it is understood that it may photograph and reproduce loans in its publications and for publicity purposes, including video recording and digital photography, and distributed by the OUAG for educational use. It is understood that the general public may photograph objects on exhibit.
