To meet state data collection needs, PATINS must require that anyone borrowing equipment and/or materials from the PATINS Lending Libraries complete an evaluation. A borrower will not be allowed to borrow any additional equipment and/or materials until an Evaluation is completed and returned for each loan. This short evaluation is required for each item borrowed from the PATINS Lending Library. The information you provide also helps us offer better recommendations about equipment for future users. Thank you.
