General policies

  • All request must be approved by a herbarium director. Loans for use by graduate students or postdocs must be co-signed by the individual’s major advisor.
  • Specimen damage that occurs during transit should be reported immediately. The borrower is liable for damage that occurs during handling of specimens.
  • Loans are generally made for a period of six months. Request for loan extensions must be made in writing.
  • In the case of re-identification of specimens, the new designations should be provided to the herbarium director when specimens are returned to KOPRI. These data can be provided on a copy of the original loan invoice, or in a separate list that contains the herbarium specimen numbers and respective new identifications.
