All requests for Newberry materials are made through our online request system, Aeon, which replaces
all paper registration and request forms. With the online request system you can:
- Submit requests automatically via links in our online catalog or via links in our finding aids
- Submit requests in advance of a visit to the library
- Submit orders for reproductions including digital scans of Newberry materials
- Track the status of each request
- Access detailed information about past requests
An appointment is now required to use the reading rooms. Submit an appointment request using this form. Please review our guidelines for using materials to prepare for your visit.
Please review our reproduction policies and fees prior to submitting an order for reproductions.
Readers are currently required to request materials at least five business days in advance of a visit.
- Submitting requests does not guarantee availability of item or seating in reading room
- Some collections (e.g. unprocessed manuscript collections) require advance permission to view in the reading room
- Staff will determine how many items you can have at your desk at one time
The Newberry Reading Rooms are currently open by appointment to readers at least 14 years old or in the ninth grade. We welcome younger
researchers to email our Reference department at firstname.lastname@example.org
