Becoming a SwISTEM Patron

  1. Complete and return the SwISTEM Patron Form.  You should plan to complete this form and return it before equipment reservation. Equipment cannot be delivered until the patron form is on file. 

  2. Select the equipment that you would like to reserve.  You can look at our printable list of equipment or use our searchable database to see pictures and more detailed descriptions of the equipment.  If you don't see what you want, e-mail or call.  We can frequently borrow what you need from another department at the University of Southern Indiana.

  3. Complete the online reservation form.  

  4. The SwISTEM Resource Center Services Supervisor will confirm your delivery and pick-up dates via email. Since equipment is loaned on a first-come, first-served basis, please make your requests as early as possible. At least one-week notice is required to ensure timely receipt. Pick-ups and deliveries are made on Tuesday of each week. Equipment is generally loaned in two-week increments. We are flexible whenever possible but cannot guarantee any time beyond two weeks.

  5. Patrons are asked to complete a short, on-line post-check-out evaluation once equipment is retrieved.
