Named for the foundation which has on two occasions awarded the Millsaps library grants, the Kellogg Collection consists of approximately 1,000 children's books which are generally selected as being representative or which were award-winning titles. Fiction titles predominate and there is an emphasis on elementary and middle school levels. The collection features a good representation of Newbery and Caldecott Award books. The Kellogg Foundation's first award to the College and the library was a grant in the mid-1960s used to purchase books in the field of education, of which these children's books were a part. The second grant in 1977 provided the library's first library computer network activity for the Millsaps library by funding the initial membership in the OCLC international network.
