Aeon is the Huntington Library's user registration and request system. Researchers use the online system to register with the library and place requests for rare materials.

An Aeon account allows you to:

  • Request rare materials in advance of your reading room visit.
  • Submit Imaging Services requests for digital reproductions of library materials.
  • Track the status of requests for the reading room and Imaging Services requests.

Materials with the status RARE - PAGE AEON in the library catalog and Summon Discovery must be requested through Aeon.

Create an Aeon account online to register with the library and begin placing requests. If you are unsure if you already have an Aeon account, please contact us.

You can find step-by-step instructions for requesting materials through Aeon in the information guide
