I have posted the following invitation to the Archivists & Archives list, but since I know that many here don't subscribe to it, I thought I would repost here (with apologies to those who do subscribe to both). Aeon applies a customizable XSLT stylesheet to your existing EAD/XML finding aids so your patrons can easily browse them and use them to place requests directly, quickly and accurately.

Attending SAA? See Aeon in action at the Harry Ransom Center!

Aeon is a new online circulation and request management system specifically designed for special collections libraries and archives by Atlas Systems, creators of the ILLiad interlibrary system used by more than 1,100 libraries across North America. In April, the Harry Ransom Center (HRC) at the University of Texas at Austin became the first site to start using Aeon; see:

If you would like to tour the HRC reading room and see Aeon in action, you are cordially invited to attend a special event on Thursday evening, August 13 from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Atlas will provide free transportation between the Hilton Austin conference hotel (leaving at 4:30pm) and the HRC, as well as a complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres reception at the conclusion of the presentation. Please RSVP to me (not to the list!) at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> for details on where to meet transportation and any questions.

Atlas Systems is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of this joint meeting of the Society of American Archivists and the Council of State Archivists. We invite you to stop by our booth (#31) in the exhibition hall to learn more about Aeon, other Atlas products and the consulting services we offer.

See you in Austin!


PS: I will also be attending the EAD Roundtable on Wednesday afternoon, and so will be happy to talk with you there as well (some may remember that I did a preliminary presentation about Aeon at last year's roundtable).
