We are very excited to announce the upcoming launch of the MSU Special Collections Registration and Request System. Beginning later this May, our familiar paper-based request system will be replaced by an automated system. Among the many benefits, users will be able to request material directly from the library’s online catalog (and eventually from our finding aids, too). What’s more, users will be able to request material remotely and in advance, from wherever you and your web-enabled device find yourselves. Keep your eyes peeled for a “Request It!” button appearing in the catalog records for Special Collections items. If you’ve ever electronically requested special collections material at another library, chances are you’ve used this system before (the proprietary name of the software is Aeon, though it goes by different names at different institutions). This will be a change for all of us, users and staff alike, so we thank you for your patience as we transition to this far more powerful Registration and Request System.
