The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections is exploring various options for enhancing its registration and circulation procedures. One of the leading candidates for this upgrade in services is a software solution called Aeon. Aeon is currently being used by special collections departments in several research institutions, including Harvard, Yale, Chicago, and the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas. Harvard College Library News recently published an article on Aeon’s “midterm” grade. While we won’t give away the posted grade here, the responses and comments from Harvard faculty and staff are all very encouraging:
For those of you who are familiar with using Aeon in your research or daily workflow, we would be delighted to receive your opinions and comments as well.
