Requesting a Book

After registering and reading room policies, researcher may request items on AEON.  Materials are paged only on weekdays at 8:00 a.m., 12 p.m., and 3:00 p.m.   There is no paging on Saturdays, so please request material in advance of a weekend research visit.

Because of space limitations, researchers may request a maximum of five items to be held for their use.  Please check with the Reading Room supervisor for requested items.  Only one item may be viewed at a time; all exceptions must be approved by the Reading Room supervisor.

The JCB uses the online circulation system called AEON. You will register here, as well as request books you wish to examine.

Please note:
  • First-time users must create an Aeon account.
  • The Request link appears on individual records, not on search result screens.
  • At this time the Request link for JCB records appears only in Classic Josiah. Choose the John Carter Brown Library in the box labeled "Limit search to:"
