Aeon is the electronic system you use to request an item through Special Collections as well as track the history of requests you've received previously.
Your username and password allows us to give you secure access to information about your requests. We can also enable you to edit your personal information such as your address or phone number.
Your username will be your email address. If you do not have an email address, contact email@example.com. Your password also can be anything you like, but must be at least eight characters long and contain a lowercase letter, an uppercase letter, and a number. We recommend that you follow good security practice and choose a password that is different from those you use to access other systems. However, no one but you will know your password, not even the special collections staff. The password you set is stored encrypted and cannot be retrieved.
In the event that you forget your password, please contact the Special Collections office at (540) 568-3612. We can then reset your password allowing you access to the Special Collections Request System (Aeon). Please change your password once you logon.
