Millikin Library Discovery

Millikin Library Discovery is the replacement for the Millikin Library Catalog. It is a way to search for materials in Staley Library and in I-Share, and it allows you to search for articles and more from our library subscription databases. 

When you perform a search in Millikin Library Discovery you have the following options:

  • Search Starter: A good place to start your research. It searches a broad range of our resources: print books, ebooks, some articles, scores, audio, video, and images.
  • Library Catalog: Search print and electronic materials (books, audio, video, scores, journals) in Staley Library's collection.
  • All I-Share Libraries: Search books, audio, video, scores, and journals owned by I-Share Libraries (89 academic & research libraries in Illinois).
  • Articles (EBSCO Databases): Article search in EBSCO-branded subscription databases like Academic Search Complete, CINAHL, PsycINFO, SocINDEX, etc.
  • Articles (Non-EBSCO Databases): Article search in non-EBSCO branded subscription databases like JSTOR, ProQuest Biology and Nursing/Allied Health, ACS Web Editions, etc.
  • WorldCat Catalog: Search library collections at non-I-Share libraries.
  • Course Reserves: Search items held on reserve at Staley Library for Millikin courses.

Once you are logged in, you should see your name in the upper right. Click your name and then select My Library Card from the drop down. My Library Card is a quick way to see all of the items that are currently checked out to you, any pending requests, fines and fees, messages, blocks on your account, and your personal details.

  For items that you have on loan from I-Share libraries you will need to select the library that owns the item from the list on the left to see your loans and to renew. Look for the clipboard icon next to a library's name or use the filter to shorten the list to those institutions that have activity.
