You know what I love? People who do stuff, then share it. Useful stuff, that is - like the 'Media Matters' research project.
A collaborative project between the New Art Trust, Tate, MoMa, and SFMOMA, Media Matters is a "multi-phase project designed to provide guidelines for care of time-based media works of art (e.g., video, film, audio and computer based installations)."
Hosted on the Tate's website, you can find acquisition guidelines (including downloadable templates and a process diagram) and borrowing / lending guidelines (another process diagram, and templates including facility reports, condition reports and loan agreements).
