Remembering Omer Hamlin, Jr., Milligan’s first Head Librarian, 1930-2014

Omer Hamlin, Jr.
July 16, 1930 – December 25, 2014

The Library remembers Omer Hamlin, Jr., who passed away on Christmas Day, 2014 in Lexington, Kentucky. Omer was born on July 16, 1930 in Tollesboro, Kentucky. He was a Milligan College alumnus (1956), President of the Milligan College Student Council 1955-56, and later Milligan College Trustee and Trustee Emeritus.

But the Library especially remembers Omer as our first Head Librarian, from 1959-62. He earned a master’s degree in library science from the University of Kentucky and was hired at Milligan College on September 1, 1959. He oversaw the move into and early management of the new P.H. Welshimer Memorial Library. During his tenure, Milligan College received a $25,000 grant from the U.S. Steel Foundation and another grant of $2,000 from the Babcock Foundation of Winston-Salem, NC. These monies were earmarked by the College administration and trustees for the purchase of new books for the Library, toward the goal of increasing holdings from 25,800 to 50,000 books.

At the Service of Dedication of the P.H. Welshimer Memorial Library building on November 24, 1961, Omer had the honor of formally opening the doors for the symbolic entry of the books from the liberal arts disciplines (carried by various faculty members)–Bible, Science, Government, Fine Arts, and Literature–to find their places on the new shelves for current and future use by students and faculty.

Homecoming Book+Art exhibit (belated report)

IMG_9439Oops! The weeks since Homecoming (October 24-25, 2014) have blown by in a flurry of Library activity. It just dawned on me that I failed to write a follow-up to our 2nd Annual Book+Art exhibit.

The idea behind Book+Art is that books not only inspire artistic creation, they can also be the medium for that artistic creation.

The growing popularity of the “book as art, art from books” trend has been documented in a number of recent publications, including Art Made From Books by Laura Heyenga (Chronicle Books, 2013), a fascinating account, which is available for checkout from the Library.

This year’s exhibit was a bit smaller than last year, with only four submissions. But all the entries were very creative and cleverly designed (see photos below–click to enlarge). Bethany Fitzgerald won the $25 Amazon gift card in a random drawing open to all entrants.

User Services Librarian, Anne Reever Osborne expressed appreciation to this year’s participants: “Thank you for your participation in this Homecoming Event sponsored by Welshimer Library.  The submissions received were representative of the great talent that Milligan College students and faculty have in creating new works of beautiful art with gently used books!”

Director of Library Services, Gary Daught envisioned Book+Art as a Fall semester creative event in the Library to complement the Spring semester’s Edible Books Festival–which will celebrate its 5th anniversary in Spring 2015.

Jake the Therapy Dog returns to the Library during Fall Finals Week

Robert Milligan exhibit and book reading in the Library

He Still Speaks

The P.H. Welshimer Memorial Library and Milligan College Archives and Special Collections is especially pleased during this 2014 Homecoming season to present an exhibit entitled Celebrating Robert Milligan’s 200th Year. Robert Milligan, whose name graces our college, was born on July 25, 2014. He was a preacher, author, teacher and professor, influencing many with his scholarship on Christian reform.

Josephus Hopwood (1843-1935) was a student at the College of the Bible in Lexington, Kentucky, where he studied under Professor Robert Milligan. In 1875, Josephus and his wife, Sarah, served as administrators at the Buffalo Male and Female Institute. In 1881, Hopwood chose to rename the school Milligan College, after his beloved professor.

The exhibit, displaying photographs, manuscripts, and publications of Robert Milligan’s personal and professional life, has been curated by Lindsay Kenderes, Information Resources Librarian and College Archivist. The exhibit can be viewed at the back of the main floor of the Library during open hours. Many of the items in the exhibit are from the Robert Milligan Research Collection, donated by Clinton J. (Class of 1995) and Adele M. (Class of 1996) Holloway.


Accompanying the Robert Milligan exhibit is a book reading and signing by Clint Holloway, author of He Still Speaks: A Literary Biography of Robert Milligan (2014). Clint wrote his book out of a sense that there was a need for people to know more about this man. “Who was this person of whom it was said he was the ‘best and purist man I have ever known,’ and who so clearly exemplified the Christian liberal arts?”


Holloway identifies four themes in which he believes Robert Milligan “still speaks” to us today: He was a ‘servant leader’ long before that term entered into common parlance; he was a champion of the Bible; he was irenic (a peacemaker) in the face of many large egos in the movement; and he was a defender of the under-represented in the church.

Clint will be reading from his book in the Library (main floor) on Saturday, October 25 at 2:30 p.m. Following, he will be making his book available for sale ($10, $5 for students) and he will be on hand to autograph copies. Light refreshments will be served.

Calling all book lovers and artists for the 2nd Annual Book+Art exhibit!

Book+Art 2014

The Library is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Book+Art exhibit as part of Milligan College’s 2014 Homecoming festivities (October 24-25). We are calling on all Milligan book lovers and artists to participate!

Submissions are invited from students, faculty, staff, and their family members. The exhibit challenges you to re-imagine books as both the inspiration and the medium for your art. There are no other limits. The Library will provide free discarded books on a cart located in the Welshimer Room (on the Main Floor) for you to use as raw material, or you can find your own books from used bookstores and second-hand shops.

Need ideas? Just do a Google Image search for “Book Art.” One up-and-coming book sculptor is Kelly Campbell Berry, who graciously provided the photo of one of her book sculptures for our poster above. Kelly has some amazing pieces on her online gallery. You can also see our write-up from last year’s exhibit.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 24 at 1:00 PM. Please include your name and the title of your piece. (More than one submission per artist is acceptable.) The exhibit will continue through Homecoming weekend and into the following week. The Library will hold a drawing, and one lucky artist will win a $25 Amazon gift card.

We’re moving to a new Library online catalog and resource login system: What you need to know

We had an active and busy summer in the library. One of the projects we were working on–which actually began earlier in the spring–is a planned migration to a new library management system and online catalog. We are almost ready to go live. If all goes well, we will switch over to the new system–called OCLC WorldShare Management Services (WMS)–on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.

It is not important to bore you with a description of the staff-side functionality and features of WMS, though we do hope the new system will enable us to serve you better. Instead, I want to describe the most important features of the new online catalog and how they differ from our current catalog. I also want to tell you about a new resource login method that is accompanying this change.

MCSearch is not changing!


The first thing you need to know is that MCSearch, our single search box library information resource discovery tool will not change significantly as a result of this migration. Our library catalog holdings will continue to be searchable as they are now in MCSearch. Holdings will simply be drawn from the new system.

WorldCat will be our online catalog for searching both local and worldwide library holdings

An online catalog is a searchable database that provides information about a library’s resource holdings (particularly books and media)–where to find them on the shelf, whether they’re available to be checked out, etc. The catalog also provides a way for library users to find out what items they have checked out, when they’re due (or if they’re overdue!), if they can be renewed, etc. This is called a user’s patron record.

Milligan College Library has been a member of the Appalachian College Association’s Shared Online Catalog since late 2006. Unless you are new to Milligan, you will likely be familiar with the current online catalog interface:

ACA Shared Catalog

On Tuesday, we will be removing this catalog from the library website and will be replacing it with OCLC WorldCat, which will look like this:


To accompany this change, we will be tweaking and renaming some of the links on the homepage of the library website. The new online catalog will be accessible from the “Catalogs” dropdown menu–called “Milligan & Libraries Worldwide”–on any page, or by clicking the large green “WorldCat (Milligan & Libraries Worldwide)” button on the homepage.


As it happens, we have been using WorldCat for many years as a way to connect users to the holdings of other libraries worldwide. This is also the platform we use for you to request book and media items through our Interlibrary Loan service. We are now going to use WorldCat as a way for you to discover our local library holdings, too. WorldCat will serve as the single catalog for both Milligan College Library holdings and the holdings of other OCLC member libraries worldwide.

A quick tour of WorldCat

If you have used WorldCat before, you will already know largely what to expect and how to find your way around. Here is a quick tour for newcomers to WorldCat, or for others who need a refresher. As always, feel free to contact a library staff member if you need further assistance.

We have configured the default WorldCat display to launch in Advanced Search mode. This mode provides several options for refining searches on the front-end. You can search by keyword, title, author, or any combination. Additionally, you can limit results by a year range, audience, format, or language.

You may notice that we have also configured WorldCat to default searches to “Libraries worldwide.” If you choose, you can limit the scope of a WorldCat search to Milligan College holdings only:


However, this isn’t really necessary. Even if you leave the “Libraries Worldwide” default, WorldCat will place Milligan Library holdings at the top of your search results list.

Let’s do a keyword search for “Steve Jobs” (founder and former CEO of Apple, Inc.):


The screen indicates that WorldCat found over 1,200 results. You can apply several limiters (called “facets”) from the left column to refine your search results. You can sort results by various criteria. You can save your search, or save selected items in a list for later use (by creating a user account in WorldCat).

Notice that if Milligan has holdings of a particular item, WorldCat will indicate with this label:


If Milligan does not hold an item, this is what you will see instead:


Open a record from your search results to get more information about the item. If the item is owned by Milligan, you will see shelf location (e.g., Lending), real-time availability, and call number. If the item is checked out, you can initiate a hold (click the “Place Hold” button), and you will be informed by email when the item becomes available. Notice too, that you can generate citations (from a variety of style guides), and many item records in WorldCat now provide content previews (from Google Books):


If the item owned by Milligan is an e-book, you can open the book directly from within WorldCat by clicking on the “View Now” link:


If the item is not owned by Milligan, you can request it from another library through Interlibrary Loan by clicking on the “Request” button and filling out/submitting the webform that opens.

Logging into WorldCat (or any library resource) from off-campus

Currently, when users want to access Milligan College Library resources from off-campus they are prompted to login using Name and Barcode Number information from their Milligan College ID Card. This is changing. Concurrent with our migration to WorldShare and WorldCat is a migration to a new user authentication system called EZproxy. Now when you attempt to access a library resource from off-campus you will be prompted to login using your Milligan College network credentials–the same Username and Password credentials you use, for example, to access the ANGEL course management system. Now you only have one set of credentials to remember! (Note: You will still need to use your Milligan ID Card to checkout physical books and media from the Library.)

ezproxy login

You need to be logged into WorldCat on- or off-campus to initiate holds, make interlibrary loan requests, or to view your patron record. If you are accessing WorldCat on-campus you will not be prompted for a login. However, to view your patron record within WorldCat you may need to login again using the same login credentials. The “View Your Patron Record” login link is located in the upper right-hand of any page in WorldCat. (Note: The “WorldCat Sign in” link is a WorldCat user account you can create to save item lists and searches. This user account is not related to the Milligan College Library system. If you want to create a WorldCat user account it is recommended that you create it with a new set of login credentials.):


Yes, use your Milligan College network login again:


Once you login you should see the link change to indicate that you are connected to the Milligan College Library system:


Click the link again to view your patron record:


That concludes the WorldCat tour. You can test drive WorldCat (click the link) for yourself now. Please understand that we are still working-out some last minute bugs. But we should be ready to go sometime on Tuesday. If you have any questions or run into any difficulties please do not hesitate to contact us.

Jake helped students “chill” over their final exams

Jake Poster Spring

On Monday-Wednesday morning this week, retired Milligan College Biology Professor Julia Wade returned to the Library with Jake, her certified therapy dog, to help students relax over their impending or completed final exams. Jake was last here during Fall Final Exam Week. And once again, he was a hit with students.

When Jake first arrived on Monday morning, Mary Jackson, our Research and Instruction Librarian called out: “Jake is in the building!” and a bunch of students immediately got up from their study tables and streamed into the Welshimer Room. One student said later she thought she had done poorly on one of her finals, but after spending ten minutes with Jake she said she felt much better. Another student tweeted: “Therapy dogs should come to the library every day,” and included an Instagram photo of Jake. One of our library student workers wasn’t able to come visit with Jake. “I was so sad to have missed him!”

That’s quite an endorsement. Thank you so much Jake and Professor Wade for taking the time to visit with us!

June Leonard: Celebrating 31 years with the Library; honored with named Library study space

On May 31, 2014, beloved staff member of the Milligan College Library, V. June Leonard will be retiring after nearly 31 years. The occasion was marked by a reception (shared by fellow Milligan College retirees, Professors Gary Leek (Biology) and Carolyn Woolard (French/Spanish)) in the atrium of the Gregory Center for the Liberal Arts, on Thursday, April 24. Present to participate at this auspicious occasion were many Milligan faculty, staff, and students, President Bill Greer, former Director of the Library Steve Preston, and members of June’s family.

June began working in the Library on July 1, 1983 as Office Manager. She was eventually promoted to Technical Services Manager and put in charge of library cataloging and acquisitions, a position she holds to the present. June is quiet and unassuming, but she has had a unique impact on students–especially those who work in the Library–by the way she engages with them and takes authentic interest in their lives. June’s employment career at Milligan College actually extends back to 1963 (through 1978), serving in various secretarial roles on campus. June’s dedication was recognized by the Milligan College community in May 2000, through the conferral of the Fide et Amore award for distinguished service.

Regarding her work in the Library, Director of Library Services Gary Daught stated: “The library world has completely changed during June’s tenure. But she never resisted change or fell back defensively on old ways of doing things. I was (and am) continually amazed at June’s consistently high level of interest, engagement, and her willingness to keep up-to-date and learn new things. June is a unique treasure. We are going to miss her.”

June was the recipient of an additional honor at Thursday’s reception. In November 2013, the Library announced the successful completion of its Million Pennies Campaign, having raised $10,000 to apply toward renovation projects. This donor level allowed for a naming of a study space in the Library. Originally, the plan was to arrange a vote for the naming opportunity. But when word of June’s retirement became known, it was obvious what the study space should be named. On hand at the reception was Vice President for Institutional Advancement Jack Simpson to present June with the plaque that will be hung at the entrance of the study space on the main floor of the Library. Director Gary Daught indicated that the funds raised in the Million Pennies Campaign will be used to purchase individual study carrels throughout the Library that will completely replace old existing carrels and match other furniture purchased in recent years.

When asked for her reaction to this recognition and reflections on her upcoming retirement, June responded: “How do you summarize your feelings or emotions in reflecting upon 45 years of service with Milligan College? I have had so many wonderful experiences and interactions with administration, faculty, staff and students. I leave Milligan not being able to express in words my appreciation for the recognition the College has given me–the Fide et Amore award in 2000, the 2013 Student Appreciation Award, and now the Library has announced that a plaque is to be placed in a library study room in my honor, which came as a result of the Million Pennies Campaign.

“I lived in Johnson City my entire life. When I first came to Milligan College to work in 1963, I had never been on the Milligan campus. Once I came, I never wanted to leave. I knew this was the place for me. The best part has been that I could have a small part in Milligan’s commitment: ‘Christian Education, the Hope of the World.'”
