The Library welcomes anyone aged 18 and above with a research need that requires the use of The Huntington's collections.

Use this checklist to prepare for your library visit:

  1. Identify the specific materials you with to review during your visit.
  2. Create an account in Aeon, the library's online system. If you're not sure if you have an Aeon account at the Huntington, please contact us.
    • If you will be working with rare (primary source) materials, log in to Aeon to request the materials. Visit the Aeon guide for instructions.
  3. Make an appointment on the Reading Room Calendar at least one week in advance of your first visit.
    • Only researchers with confirmed appointments will be admitted to the library.
