“Johns Adams Unbound” Online Site Support Notebook

ALA has primary responsibility for investigating loss or damage to the exhibit and determining fault. ALA carries insurance on the exhibit both in transit and on display. But if a library is determined to be at fault in damage or loss, then the library will be responsible for paying costs to replace or restore parts of the exhibit. If the library is determined not to be at fault, ALA will handle the costs of damage or loss. Replacement of individual panels costs approximately $430; replacement of banners is $250.

Some libraries add a rider to their insurance policy for the exhibit period, but ALA does not require libraries to do this. The value of the “John Adams Unbound” exhibit is $50,000 for insurance purposes.
