What is Aeon?
Aeon is a special collections materials request management system that has been used by East Carolina University's Special Collections Division since the Spring of 2011.
What does it do?
Aeon allows our patrons to submit requests to view library materials in advance of their arrival onsite, allowing for quicker access to the materials you want to view. It also allows for you to keep track of what you have viewed in the past, making for more efficient research!
Aeon helps our staff serve the patron better by giving us instant access to patron records and allowing for enhanced tracking of usage statistics, which aids in both preservation efforts and helping to develop our collections.
What does it not do?
Aeon does not currently support online reference services. Reference inquiries should still be routed through the Special Collections Division's online form.
