Support for Your Follett eBooks
Follett eBooks and Destiny have been updated for the 2018-2019 school year.
Follett technology products, including Follett eBooks and audiobooks, Destiny Discover®, Destiny® Library Manager, Destiny Resource Manager and Destiny Analytics have received updates for this new school year.
A simpler and more reliable digital experience is now available!
Follett eBooks and audiobooks will use new reader functionality that provides a simplified reading experience and improved support for offline reading in Destiny Discover and Destiny Library Manager.
To support a consistent digital reading experience across K-12 schools and public libraries, we’ve been working with our Baker & Taylor public library team on an improved digital experience, and cooperative programs between public libraries and schools to share broader access to public library digital content.
What do you need to do?
Follett has updated the digital platform to support the new reader functionality. Your Follett eBooks and audiobooks will continue to be accessible. Your Follett eBooks and audiobooks will automatically open in the new reader within Destiny Library Manager and Destiny Discover. There is no Destiny upgrade required for these changes.
For IOS®, macOS® and Windows devices, the existing Discover app will direct the user to a new web app experience.
Once the user has created a bookmark to the new web app experience, the old app can be removed.
We recommend that you accept the latest updates to the Destiny Discover app on iOS and Android™ devices.
The new Discover and reader experience supports offline eBook reading through the use of the browser storage. If the device is not connected to the Internet, the user will only be able to access previously downloaded eBooks.
What resources are available to inform teachers and students?
Updated quick reference guides and videos are available in the Resource Center. These resources can be used to assist staff and students in transition to the new experience.
Register for the What’s New in Destiny 16.0 webinar to learn more about these changes.
