Follett's Destiny 11.0 Release Heightens Support Of Digital Learning

MCHENRY, Ill., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Follett announced today 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 dramatically 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.

"We know that digital and mobile are key trends that are transforming school libraries, and we want to give librarians new ways to connect with students and teachers," said Don Rokusek, Follett's Destiny program director. "It also will now be easier to use Follett eBooks and be able to identify them with the new green icon."

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. "We are staying current with changes in the standards, from both a functional and technical standpoint," Rokusek said.  "The move to RDA cataloging keeps Destiny fresh and relevant for today's school districts."

In addition, Destiny 11.0 will mark the debut of a new dashboard for Destiny Library Manager, the leading library management software in nearly 59,000 schools and 6,000 districts. 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.

"The new dashboard is designed to help librarians and media specialists more easily communicate key usage metrics to administrators and advocate for the importance of their school libraries," Rokusek said. "Follett recognizes the key roles that school libraries play in education."
