Starting Your Research

Special Collections & Archives now uses Aeon, a registration and requesting system to manage research requests. This online system allows you to quickly create an account and easily request materials for consultation in our reading room (currently restricted to Bowdoin community members and vaccinated members of the public) or to order reproductions. Aeon also provides an easy way for teaching librarians to collaborate with Bowdoin faculty to design archives and rare books-based class sessions.

Learn how to use Aeon with our quick Registering in Aeon, Accessing Print Materials, and Accessing Manuscripts and Archives videos.
