In order to view materials in our Reading and Viewing Room, or to receive photoduplications of materials, you must have a research account with the Harry Ransom Center. This account is separate from your library account with the University of Texas and accounts for other campus archives and repositories.

Use this link to set up an online account with Aeon, our request system for looking at materials in our Reading Room. You can complete this step before you visit us, or after you complete our orientation video. 

On your first visit, you will watch a short video and  one of our staff will lead you through a short orientation on our reading room procedures and handling of sensitive material. After that, you are on your way!
