Lending Policies and Practices


Videos, books, material items, and discovery boxes are all available for loan from the African Studies Program office.

Items are shipped free-of-charge anywhere within the state via UPS. The packages arrive with a pre-paid return label that can be affixed to the box for return shipping. We ask that items be borrowed for no more than 2 weeks, though if an item is in high demand we may need to shorten the loan period; likewise, if an item is needed for an extended period, accommodations can be made.

To request an item for loan, please send an email to outreach@africa.wisc.edu and include the following information:

  • Name
  • Name of institution
  • Institution’s mailing address
  • Telephone number
  • Grade level
  • Items for loan
  • Desired loan period
