To digitally complete a loaner form provided by UMIACS Staff, follow these steps.
- Adobe Acrobat DC (available from Terpware free to all students, staff, and faculty) or Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (free to everyone)
- Download this form. Open it in either Adobe Acrobat DC or Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.
- Click on Tools on the top menu, find Fill & Sign under Forms & Signatures, and click Add and/or Open.
- Click Fill and sign under the area that says You with the Fill & Sign menu.
- Take note of the following notice in the top right of the application and click OK.
- Fill out fields that have been specified as appropriate. At minimum, this should be at least the Description of Equipment field for all items, and for any equipment that has a University Inventory Number (red tag) and/or serial number, these fields for that equipment as well. If you have been in contact with UMIACS Staff previously, they may have pre-filled some of these fields for you. Leave the signature field blank.
- Click on Sign on the Fill & Sign top menu, and then Add Signature (if you have previously generated a signature, that existing signature will appear instead and you can choose it and skip the next step).
- Click Apply at the bottom to use the auto-generated signature from Adobe. You can choose to either draw or upload an image instead if you would like, but the auto-generated one is sufficient.
- Place the signature in the signature field. Note that you will not be able to edit the form further after you save the PDF at this point.
- Click File in the top left and Save As...
- Click Choose a Different Folder... on the Save As PDF menu.
- Choose an appropriate location to save the file, rename the file to include the word 'signed', and save the file.
- Attach the signed form to the originating request that prompted staff to direct you to this page.
