    Webinar Recap

    During the webinar we walked through the great new capabilities that we’ve added to Destiny Library Manager and Destiny Discover, our digital platform for Follett eBooks, Follett audiobooks, Lightbox content and Destiny Resource Manager. 

    In addition to other improvements, Destiny 14.5 is another important step in our effort to continue to improve Destiny Discover – the latest student- and teacher-facing part of Destiny Library Manager which supports discovery of your print and digital resources. 

    Destiny Discover Update from Don Rokusek Jan 13 2017.png

    We heard your desire for Destiny Discover to have more capabilities from our older Destiny Classic and Destiny Quest search interfaces, to make you more comfortable directing your students and teachers to this part of our Destiny solution. Destiny 14.5 includes new capabilities for librarians to customize certain aspects of the Destiny Discover homepage to better feature and promote specific resources to your patrons.   

    With Destiny 14.5, you can control the ordering of ribbons on the Destiny Discover homepage, turn specific ribbons on or off, and you can customize the Links ribbon to promote your paid and/or free databases that have been configured for One Search. You can also add custom links to the Links ribbon to direct students anywhere on the web that provides resources that you want to highlight.  

    We will be adding more capabilities to Destiny Discover throughout the remainder of this school year and into next school year. We have some very exciting things planned to support Future Ready Librarians and the important role that you and your teachers play in curating and providing access to content for students to support their curriculum goals.


    • Locally-installed Destiny customers: The 14.5 update is available on our Customer Portal for locally-installed Destiny customers. Your technical staff can find the new update here.
    • Follett-hosted Destiny customers: If Destiny is hosted by Follett, you should have already received the dates and times for your system update.
    • All Destiny customers: The What’s New in Destiny 14.5 document which highlights the new capabilities of this update is available here.
