    Forgive me if this topic is covered, I did a search and couldn’t narrow it down enough to get the answer I was looking for…

    My organization received a huge collection of items that technically can be accessioned as it will belong to the museum. However, there are a few items from the foundation that donated the collection that will remain under said foundation. I’m trying to determine (using Past Perfect), do I record these items as incoming loans with a descriptive under purpose as “Permanent Loan” or do I accession with restrictions, stating it’s a permanent loan. The items will remain with the museum as long as we remain open.

    Advice greatly appreciated.
