Where did the Fall go? We had an exciting start to the school year by installing a new library management system called “Destiny”. It is amazing! We are very excited about the potential offered by this software, which is our online catalog, to assist our students, staff and parents find exactly what they are looking for.
First, I wish to express my gratitude to all those who donated to DSEF. Through DESF, all 4 schools in the Dover Sherborn Districts were able to purchase and install Destiny. We couldn’t have done this without their generous support … thank you!
We are learning new components of the program, almost daily. The students love that we no longer have a ‘barcode book’. This old 3-ring notebook contained all the student and staff barcodes needed to borrow books. Now we have ‘gone Green’! They can find their barcode by homeroom or last name, on the checkout computer and then click on their ‘image’ or name to access their account. They are very excited.
We are thrilled to finally be able to purchase eBooks. We have placed our first order and are eagerly awaiting their arrival. Students will be able to access these eBooks at school or home. Destiny is a web-based program accessible anywhere in the world, 24/7! Now I just need to create accounts for all the students and staff.
Please check back as we announce each new feature that will make finding information or items much easier for everyone.
