Using Aeon to Request Special Collections Materials: How to Request Bancroft Materials Using the Manual Request Form

This guide provides an introduction to Aeon, the special collections registration and requesting tool.

How to Request Materials Using the Manual Request Form

Search the OskiCat library catalog to locate materials.

  • Please talk to a Reference Librarian or email us at bancref@library.berkeley.edu if you need help finding materials.

Look for a BANCROFT REQUEST link for the item on the right side of the OskiCat record.

If there is no BANCROFT REQUEST link:

  1. Open a new browser tab or window and navigate to aeon.berkeley.edu.
  2. Log in to your Aeon account. (Don't have an Aeon account yet? Register as a new researcher following the instructions in the Register section of this guide).
  3. In your Aeon account, click the link to Request Materials for Reading Room Use

            

  1. Review the information on the next page, and click Request Materials Form
  2. Review the information at the top of the request form, and complete the required fields. Please note that you may only request ONE item per form. If you need to request multiple items from the same collection, please use the Clone Request option.
  3. Make sure you have entered a Title, Call Number, and Volume/Container number (if applicable).
  4. Choose if you want to Schedule Retrieval to have the material brought to the Reading Room on your specified date(s) of visit, or if you want to save your request for later (Keep for Review).
  5. Click the Submit Request button.
  6. Confirm that your request has been submitted successfully by checking your Active Requests list on the main page of your Aeon account.
