The new release of Follett’s library management system, Destiny, will provide users with several key enhancements, including an improved ebook experience and increased integration between Destiny Library Manager and Titlewave, Follett’s collection development, curriculum support, and online ordering tool.

With the new 11.5 release, students and teachers will recognize a smoother, improved experience when searching, opening and reading ebooks. The improved Destiny Library Manager/Titlewave integration also will allow library staff to easily see suggested or recommended titles on Titlewave.

Other Destiny Library Manager 11.5 highlights include:

? increased personal and public “Resource List” capabilities, offering increased functionality for collaboration and curation of materials;

? a new district home page that allows larger customers to better share resources and news, and provide access to Destiny at their schools;

? improved searching in WebPath Express with an easier way to browse topics; and

? a link to the new Follett Community, a new professional learning community designed exclusively for educators.

The new 11.5 version also offers book cover viewing when checking books in or out to support self-service and improved accuracy.

In addition, Destiny Asset Manager will now provide a help ticketing system and new Dashboard Reports, while Destiny Textbook Manger will allow customers to cancel warehouse orders, run reports on open orders by title, and summarize textbook checkouts by teacher name, period and textbook user.
