Starting August 1, 2014, all researchers using Special Collections and University Archives, the Gordon W. Prange Collection, and Special Collections in Performing Arts at the University of Maryland will need to create an online account in Aeon to request materials for use onsite in the Prange Collection or to place a duplication order. In this post, we will explain how to create an account.
How Do I Create an Account?
1) Go to https://aeon.lib.umd.edu/logon/. If you are not affiliated with the University of Maryland (UMD), click a red button under Guest Researcher.
2) If this is your first time using Aeon, click Create New Account button.
3) You are now on the Researcher Registration Page. PLEASE READ THIS PAGE CAREFULLY, as this page explains the rules and regulations of the Prange Collection. Click First Time Users Click Here at the bottom of page.
4) Fill out the New User Registration Form. The fields with red asterisks are required. Please remember your Username and Password. You will need to log in to Aeon every time you wish to request Prange Collection materials.
In order to best serve you, please create an account prior to your visit to the Prange Collection. If you are unable to create an account in advance of your arrival, you may create an account onsite in the Prange Collection. Prange staff will be available to assist you. If you have any questions, please contact us.
