KITS FOR CHECKOUT
USU Extension 4-H maintains a Kits for Checkout Program for 4-H faculty and staff. There are several items that are also available for registered volunteers, public school teachers and afterschool providers. Below is how to access the system:
Register: You must be registered to access the system. To register, follow this link. usually takes 24-48 hours for us to put you into the system once you have registered. This registration only needs to be done once.
Access the System: The Catalog of supplies is maintained through a third-party program called Asset Tiger. Once you are in the system you will receive a confirmation email asking you to set up a password for the site. Once this is done, you can access the catalog of supplies by going to https://www.myassettag.com/assettiger/. Once there, you can sign in and it will take you to dashboard. It will look like this:
To see the list of items for checkout, click on “Assets” from the side menu.
Then click on “List of Assets”.
You should see a page that looks like this:
From there you can scroll through the items available for Checkout.
You can also search by subject or keyword by clicking on “Search Criteria” and then “Categories”:
Reserve Your Selection: To find out details on an item you are interested in checking out, click on the item number, then clicking “More Details”. You will be able to see information on the item you are interested in checking out. Toward the bottom the “Documentation” and “Linking” Tabs may have access to more information and curriculum (this part is still a work in progress; these links will increase over the next few weeks).
To check availability, click on the “Reserve” tab at the bottom of the page. This will take you to a calendar showing the reservations of just the item you clicked on. To reserve the item, click “Add Reservation” at the top of the calendar. You need to click a beginning and ending date. Please enter the dates and times you plan to pick up and drop off the item, not just the dates of the actual event. You can also request confirmation and reminder emails for your reservation.
IMPORTANT: Items for Checkout at Thanksgiving Point are pulled for the next week each Friday afternoon. Items must be reserved by 5:00 pm Thursday night to be available for checkout the following week.
Hints for successful checkout:
- In the old system, checkouts were divided into USU staff checkouts, and items available to others. With the new system, they are all in one place. Before reserving an item, be sure that you are eligible to check it out by looking at the Checkout Category. If you reserve an item you are not eligible to checkout, your registration will not be honored.
- Be sure to look at the description to see the number of items in a set. For example, if you are reserving a Snap Circuits set of 5 kits but you need 10, you may need to reserve a second item to get the quantity you want. There are multiple kits of many items in the system.
- Be sure you note the location of the item you are checking out. Currently most items are located at Thanksgiving Point, but we will be adding items from other locations. If you are in Kane county, you may not want to reserve something located in Box Elder county.
- Other than reservations for county offices, please limit your reservations to 3 items at a time. This will allow more members of the community to have access to the resources. If you have a special event and need to request an exception to this rule, please email firstname.lastname@example.org prior to making the reservation.
Once you have made your reservation, it will be verified by 4-H staff. You will be sent a Qualtrics survey asking questions about the where and how you will be using the checkout equipment. This survey must be completed to finalize your reservation. If you do not see the survey link, it can be found here: https://usu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0pljwLm1taeO3VX A new survey must be completed for each reservation.
Please be sure to return items on time so that they are available for the next reservation. If there are unforeseen circumstances, please email.
