Follett has announced the release of Destiny 12.0 with Universal Search, a new search interface that allows students to seamlessly search and access all print and digital content within the Destiny Library Manager platform. Whether reading ebooks or conducting research, students can now access the content they need from one system that offers a consistent, simplified user experience with single sign-on access.
Rather than having to use a separate tool for digital content, Destiny is a universal solution that provides students and teachers access to multiple types of resources from multiple vendors, within the convenience of one system. Destiny offers powerful federated searching so a student can find a wide variety of high-quality relevant resources with minimal effort.
The new Universal Search interface is built to provide an optimal experience on virtually any size screen. Universal Search also takes advantage of Destiny’s deep integration with Follett ebooks, allowing users to directly check out content, place titles on hold, and provide direct access from mobile devices.
Within the new release, librarians and teachers can now collaborate and connect to content using Follett’s exclusive Curriculum Tags, which include tags for specific skills and Common Core-related terms such as “figurative language,” “point of view,” “primary sources,” and “cause and effect.”
With the introduction of Universal Search’s cloud-based functionality, Follett will add new, dynamic capabilities on an ongoing basis. Schools will have the flexibility to introduce the new features at their own pace.
