How do I request materials in Aeon?
Material requests are placed directly through your patron (Aeon) account. While it is not necessary for you to place materials in advance of your visit, this is recommended if you would like materials to be on hold upon your arrival. For information on how to navigate Aeon and the library databases used in the Special Collections & Archives, please visit the following guide: https://guides.lib.uiowa.edu/welcometosc
If you are new to the Special Collections & Archives, and are not sure how to request materials, please email us at email@example.com before requesting an appointment. Staff will be happy to assist you. You are also welcome to come to the reading room without having placed material requests, and staff will assist you on the spot.
