Collection Historical Note

Since its start in 1857, Illinois State Normal University has had some form of the library. At the time, books were an expensive purchase for both professors and students. Literary societies such as the Philadelphian and Wrightonian societies purchased books for use by society sponsors and members. These growing collections moved to different locations on campus, making it hard to keep accurate inventories and use records. In 1889, in an agreement with then-president Dr. Edwin C. Hewett, the literary societies combined their scattered book collections into one collection in one location. In return, Dr. Hewett agreed to hire a librarian to manage and develop the collection. One year later, Dr. Hewett hired Angeline Vernon Milner, the university's first librarian. Under Milner's leadership, the collection was both cataloged and expanded to include informational sources for subjects being taught on campus. Milner first managed the collection in Old Main, its first home, and later oversaw the collection's move to its second home, North Hall. After Milner's retirement in 1927, Eleanor Weir Welch was hired as the new University Librarian. Welch's tenure modernized both the physical collection and the librarian profession. Welch instituted new acquisition and cataloging procedures for the collection and pushed for library service courses to be taught on campus by library staff. Welch was also integral to the development and construction of a new library building (now Williams Hall), the library's first building on campus specifically built for the library collection. In 1940, that building was completed and dedicated as Milner Library in honor of Ange Milner. The collection remained in that building until it was moved to a new building in 1976. Author: the Class of Spring 2013 HIS390, Archives and Manuscripts; April Karlene Anderson. The collection was reorganized in the Spring of 2018 by Julie Neville.

Biographical Note

The library of Illinois State University is named for the school's first library, Angeline Vernon Milner. The first campus library was located in Old Main and supervised by Milner. The library then moved to Cook Hall, North Hall, Williams Hall (first known as Milner Library), and subsequently its current home, Milner Library, in 1976.
