Using Aeon to Request Materials at The Bancroft Library: Appointments

This guide provides an introduction to Aeon, the special collections registration and requesting tool, at The Bancroft Library

How to Schedule an Appointment

The Bancroft Library is currently offering a limited number of research appointments. Everyone who enters the reading room must have an appointment. The appointments run from 10 am to 1 pm and 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. We are requiring a minimum of 3 days advance notice for appointments. All collections housed at NRLF must be requested one week in advance to ensure availability.


There are two options for scheduling appointments. You can either schedule it when you submit your requests or use the "schedule appointment" button on the Appointments page in Aeon.

Calendar only shows morning appointments. To see afternoon availability, click on an open morning slot and adjust the date and time.



Please note that if you would like to stay for the entire day, you will need to create two appointments. 


If you want more than one appointment, you can either use the “schedule appointment” button on the Appointments page in Aeon or you can divide your requests into groupings and create separate appointments for each set of requests.


You can cancel and/or reschedule your appointment on the Appointments page. Use the "Edit" option to reschedule.
