Join us for an exciting sneak peek of the new functionality being released this summer with Destiny 15.0.** Find, create, deliver and share in a whole new way with Collections, powered by Destiny Discover™.
Collections creates new, collaborative ways for librarians, teachers and curriculum staff to share free or purchased resources across the district and schools. Collections allow you to curate anything from anywhere to share and collaborate with anyone.
Learning Services will share new and creative ways to promote access to library resources with Destiny Discover, as well as see options for taking it a step further with single sign-on access.
