Use Follett Destiny to access the materials in your school library.


Getting started:

  1. Go to southwestschools.follettdestiny.com
  2. Select your school.
  3. Several search options are available in the left hand column.
    1. Library search
      1. Basic - This is the easiest way to search by material type, reading level, interest level and at the high school, lexile level.
      2. Visual - This is a nice option for very young students.
    2. Destiny Quest - This highly graphical interface is good if you want to get your students excited about reading. Students can write reviews and share what they have been reading. Other features include: a "you may also like..." section with suggestions of additional titles, and a "New Arrivals" and a "Top 10" list.
    3. Destiny Discover - This is a great option if your students are doing research. It is a very simple, student-friendly interface that gives results for a wide array of resources in one search: print materials, eBooks, databases (when logged in) and open educational resources (OER). (This page can also be reached by going to gofollett.com.)
