Destiny Quest is the online catalog that my school uses. This program works with Follett School Solutions. Teachers and students use this tool when they are searching for a book or multiple books on one topic. Most of the time, students know exactly which book they want when they enter the library. Many students go straight to the computers with this title in mind and look to see if the book is in or if it is checked out. Teachers on the other hand, usually know which topic they want books about, but are not sure about the title of the book or where to find it in the library. Destiny Quest allows the user to search by title, keyword, or author. There is also an advanced search that allows users to limit the search by specifying which words not to include in the search.
Students enjoy the section of the homepage that displays new and recently added books to our library. As a media specialist, I find the left side that displays the top 10 books informative for knowing my audience and planning which books to buy in the future.
Grades: K and up. Subject(s): Everything. Overall rating: 9.
