Online Lending Library
PATINS is pleased to offer a free service that loans assistive technology devices, software, resource materials, etc. to school personnel at Indiana local educational agencies. These items are used for the purpose of preview and/or trial periods with students. Items are loaned for a six week evaluation period. PATINS cannot guarantee immediate delivery of requested equipment, so it is the school's responsibility to look for other avenues to obtain necessary equipment if it is required by an IEP and not available from PATINS.
For a listing of devices/software/resources available through the PATINS Lending Libraries, please visit the Library Catalog. Please make sure you have read and understand the above disclaimers before using this catalog.
As of the 2014-2015 school year, PATINS has gone online with all Lending Library forms. In doing so, we are able to streamline data collection for the State and expedite your shipment(s) to you for your student(s). Please contact any PATINS staff member if you need assistance completing any of the forms. These forms are available below.
