On December 6, 2017, Special Collections will implement a new online request system, Aeon. This software system is used by most of our fellow UC Special Collections departments as well as many academic research libraries across the country. It will replace the paper registration and request forms in our Reading Room and will be used for registering as a patron, requesting materials, as well as submitting duplication requests. All requests will be made through Aeon.

We’re excited to launch this new system and will be happy to walk patrons through it during their next visit to Special Collections. Later this week we will also be launching instructional pages about the system on the Special Collections website.

Please note that the department and the Reading Room will be closed on December 4-5, 2017 for staff training for this new system.
