Abstract: NARA administers the National Archives Traveling Exhibits Service (NATES) in accordance with 44 U.S.C. 2108-9 to present exhibitions of our holdings and to enter into agreements with other organizations under 44 U.S.C. 2305 for support of such exhibitions.

NARA developed NA Form 16016, Limited Facility Report, to serve as an application for exhibits and to gather information from applicants on a proposed venue's facility and environmental conditions. We provide a copy of the form, requirements for exhibition security, and regulations to the applicant. NARA needs the information contained on this form to determine whether the proposed facility meets the criteria under NARA Directive 1612, Exhibition Loans and Traveling Exhibitions, and whether to grant the application for an exhibit.
