Milner is an active partner in the teaching, learning, and service activities of Illinois State University. Milner librarians provide research assistance and library instruction customized to meet the needs of students and faculty. Our goal is to use private support to improve in four key areas:
Expand student opportunity
Contributions to The Milner Fund will directly assist students by helping us purchase popular textbooks and other resources that help defray individual costs for learning materials.
Reinvent our learning spaces
Through technology-enhanced spaces. Milner Library will provide unique learning opportunities not available elsewhere on campus.
Empower through innovative programs and partnerships
Emerging technologies, tutoring, writing and technology support, and disciplinary expertise are available in the library for students.
Generous, ongoing support for the library's annual fund allows us to respond quickly to opportunities that benefit our students and faculty and enhance our reputation for excellence.
Become one of Ange's keepers!
Give $1000 or more to any Milner fund and you will become one of Ange’s Keepers, an honor roll named after Illinois State's first University Librarian, Angeline Milner.
