Conditions for lending items for exhibitions

The KB, National Library of the Netherlands, is prepared to lend works for the purpose of an exhibition under certain conditions.

The KB is willing to participate in exhibitions with an academic and/or cultural purpose, which are held in a museum, library, or similar institution with adequate facilities for the exhibition of fragile or precious items. Participation in travelling exhibitions or exhibitions lasting longer than three months will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

If items cannot be exhibited in a normal way due to their fragile condition, the loan may be refused or special terms and conditions may apply.
