Lending Policy

Videos, books, artifacts, discovery boxes, and other items available in our collections 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, accommodations can be made if an item is needed for an extended period.

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

  • Name of the person(s) making the request
  • Name of institution
  • Institution’s mailing address
  • Telephone number
  • Grade level
  • Items for loan
  • Desired loan period
