Follett has announced the release of Destiny 11.0 with significant improvements to help create an interactive, digital learning environment with Follett eBooks, as well as continue to drive library efficiency.

A key feature of Destiny 11.0 addresses the improvements Follett made to its capabilities for using eBooks and mobile devices to support digital learning, including a Destiny Quest mobile app for Kindle Fire devices to further support the 21st century learner. The app currently supports users of Apple and Android devices.

Another Destiny 11.0 release highlight is Follett’s implementation of Resource Description and Access (RDA) cataloging to support the new industry standards aimed at today’s digital world. In addition, Destiny 11.0 will mark the debut of a new dashboard for Destiny Library Manager library management software. The new dashboard will provide quick access to view circulation statistics, overdue notices and hold requests in one easy-to-view, user-friendly graphical representation. Follett’s ongoing effort to support 21st century technology skills, as well as Common Core State Standards, has impressed customers who received an early look at Destiny 11.0 as part of the Follett First Look member-based program.

The release gives users new capabilities in Destiny Textbook Manager and Destiny Asset Manager including the ability to allow calculation of lost fines based on asset or item price.

Existing Destiny customers with current technical support, and who have previously upgraded to Destiny 10.5, are entitled to Destiny 11.0 at no additional cost.

Follett’s School and Library Group includes Follett Software Company, Follett Library Resources, Follett Educational Services and Follett International. With a global footprint in 110 countries, the group boasts more than 70,000 K-12 customers and helps to guide more than 35 million students toward achievement.
