Material Request Issues: We are curently configuring a new plugin on the Aeon request system in CARDinal. If you are having trouble requesting materials, email, and we can create the requests for you. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Aeon is a special collections and archives materials request system. You can use Aeon to request to see materials in the reading room or place a request to have materials copied and sent electronically.  Please note that you will first need to create an account (ISU users can create an account using Okta).

There are three ways to request materials:

1) You can fill out the form on the Aeon site.

2) Through the library quick search function (click on Special Collections Request in the item record)

3) By selecting materials in the CARDinal database (click on Submit Request to View)
