Please request a Library Orientation Appointment.

Library cards are renewed based on a need to use the library's collections. Renewals must be accompanied by a research appointment to work with rare or general collections materials in the reading rooms.

All renewing readers are required to update their research topic:

  1. Log in to your Aeon account. Contact the library if you need assistance with your username or password.
  2. Click on My Account
  3. Click on Change User Information
  4. Update your contact information and complete these questions:
    • What are the primary goals of your visit and the general focus of your research?
    • What specific items and/or collections do you anticipate working with?
    • Provide the library call numbers for items/collections you wish to review.

Library cards cannot be renewed for ancillary privileges, including access to electronic resources, subscription databases, or admission to the Huntington grounds.

Review the Using the Library guide for more details about getting to the library and preparing for your visit.
