What’s New in the School Libraries?
A new library automation system called Destiny Library Manager will be available to the East Aurora students when they begin school this fall.
Destiny is an engaging and interactive OPAC (online catalog) that provides the ability to search and view all materials across the District through any school’s catalog and that will eventually allow students and staff to submit book reviews, title recommendations to each other, wish list suggestions to library staff for purchase and other interactive features. This new system can be accessed 24/7 through any computer with Internet access.
One of the key features of Destiny is WebPath Express. This will provide students with over 105,000 websites that are searched by subject and educator reviewed. Destiny will also provide access to the District’s databases and electronic resources through a keyword search. Another feature of Destiny is Title Peak which displays the picture of the book cover, summary of the book, sample text, and book reviews.
We are excited to offer this new automation system to our students and look forward to exploring its many features in the upcoming school year.
