Destiny Quest is for Teachers Too!

Did you know you don't have to walk all the way down to the library to use the card catalog (Destiny). You can click the link on the Novell screen and do all this from the confort of your own desk.

Did you know Quest - part of Destiny - can be customized with your data of recent checkouts, holds, web searches, or book lists. Just log on the Destiny using B # without the B and your last name.

I have spent a little time on Quest and it can be a valuable service. For example, you could do a search on Animals and could search encyclopedias, subscriptions, and Discovery Streaming all from in the same interface.

I realize that technology can feel overwhelming at times, but this is one tool I believe can actually make your job easier.  So, the next time you have a few minutes click on Library Catalog on the Novell screen and log in to destiny with B # without a B and your last name. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at its usefulness.
