Reading Room’s new request management system now live

The Reading Room’s new request management system, Aeon, is now live. As of 6 March 2017 Aeon has replaced the online form-based system researchers used to place requests for accessing Special Collections, Grainger Museum and University of Melbourne Archive material. Researchers wishing to place a Reading Room request must now do so by visiting aeon.unimelb.edu.au and creating a user account.

Researchers can use their University credentials to create accounts and view and manage their requests. Aeon allows researchers to see the progress of their requests, it also provides full bibliographic references and request history and supports tagging requests according to researcher-designated terms such as specific research topics.
