The Museum Loan Network was founded in 1995 to make a wider variety of museum objects available to a broader and more diverse public. This publication examines the first ten years of the program, using case studies to highlight successes in surveying museum collections, developing an online catalog of objects available for loan, and nurturingnew relationships between museums of all sizes across the country.
