Improving Special Collections


The L. Tom Perry Special Collections is pleased to announce that it has implemented Aeon. Aeon is an automated request and workflow management software specifically designed to improve patron service and to maximize staff efficiency.

The Aeon system will handle request management for the department and all patrons of Special Collections will need to create a user account at https://byu.aeon.atlas-sys.com/logon. This user account will allow you to submit requests to use materials in the Special Collections Reading Room and it will keep a history of the materials that you’ve requested for future reference.

The new request system will be available on Monday January 11th, 2021. You will be able to create a user account beginning on this date and will use the new system to request materials. All materials used in Special Collections will need to be requested through the new Aeon system. You will find links to Aeon in the library catalog (https://lib.byu.edu/) and through our finding aids website (http://archives.lib.byu.edu/).

We hope that the new systems we are implementing will enhance your Special Collections experience. Let us know if you have any questions at specialcollections@byu.edu or 801-422-3175.
