Introducing Aeon

Introducing AEON: The future is now!

Aeon is an online registration and requesting service designed specifically for special collections and research libraries.

Beginning on Monday, October 3, the Beinecke Library will discontinue use of all paper call slips in favor of Aeon online requesting.  Yale faculty, graduate students, undergraduates and staff will be able to access their account using their NetID.   Visiting researchers who have registered with us will be assigned a username and password at the desk.

We believe this new system will lead to greater efficiency and a higher level of service. However, as with any new technology, there may be some issues within the first few weeks that could lead to slight delays in your requests.  Thank you for your patience.
