LIBRARY STAFF: Follett Destiny Suite

Getting around in Destiny

What's New in Version 18

Did you know?

Add a Destiny Extension to Chrome

. . . and any Google search automatically brings up relevant titles from your library catalogue.  They appear in a black bar at the top of the search results.  See the detailed instructions on this site.

Checkout those books!

Internet connection gone down temporarily? Add the Follett Destiny mobile app to a smartphone so staff can check out books via a cell signal. It is also handy when buying books at a bookstore or you need to circulate items from another area of the school. 

Use a hidden circulation type . . .

. . . when importing new records. Once the books are processed and ready for the shelves, switch the circulation type to the correct circulation type.  Doing this means the books aren't searchable; and won't show up in your "Just Added" ribbon, until they are ready to be circulated.

Use Sublocations . . .

. . . to help students find resources in different sections of the library (Graphic Novels, Biographies, Issues, genrefied fiction categories etc.) You can assign sublocations to all copies in a "Copy Category" by using "Global Update."

Better than breadcrumbs . . .

My Searches keeps tracks of the last 20 searches that have been done on a computer, whether a user is logged in or not. After you've done at least one search, this link will appear in the search window, to let you quickly revisit a search without having to remember or reconstruct it. Right now, this feature is only available in Destiny Classic.
