Aeon User Guide — Getting Started with Aeon

This guide provides support to patrons doing research in Archives and Special Collections.

What is Aeon?

Aeon is an online researcher registration and request system used by libraries, archives, and museums. Aeon enables you to do everything research-related through one online platform, including: 

  • Registering as a researcher (a one-time process) 

  • Requesting appointments.

  • Making requests for materials for both in-person visits and reproduction. 

  • Viewing your request history so you have full citation information for all the materials you’ve consulted.

  • Viewing the status of your reproduction requests and downloading reproductions you’ve requested.

See the Aeon FAQs page for more information.
