Destiny Library Manager - So You can Find your Books!
Kommentare: We've been using Destiny for nearly 15 years now, and as the project manager, I was happy to replace our old, desktop application library management software. It allowed student's access to an online Card Catalog, and offered a base start for younger students to access the internet. Managing the software has been easy. Most of the time, employees don't require training as they step it. Just once or twice seeing it in use, and they figure it out. Follett offers a quality service, and when I've had a few (very, very rare) issues over the years, they have always responded back right away with the information I need. No bouncing through scripted responses, they just solve the problem. So Follett Destiny, it does the job, and it does it well. (And I've seen other School's alternatives, and I'm happy we have Follett).
Vorteile: Destiny is an excellent web based Library Management system. In the old days we called it our "Digital Card Catalog." It has a number of great features (some of which are addons), to show book covers, related links, and more. It has long since been our front end for our libraries, and our Librarians (and helpers), have required little training for them to do their jobs. The software is frequently updated, when a critical issue occurs, but also yearly patches to keep things fresh enough. The software also has a nice add on, Web Path Express, for younger students to explore topics their are searching for. If a student searches for Baseball (within Destiny), a student will be offered curated high quality content links from the Internet that might be pertinent to their research. It's a great starter for our little guys. Does interface with Active Directory too!
Nachteile: Destiny's interface is a little dated. After years and years of use, it just looks old. Functionality is not lost, nor is anything else. But seriously, I cannot come up with much more than just that it's "classic" look. Destiny is a bit pricey (but competitive.... )

I don't know what we would do without Folleett in our school library.
Kommentare: See above under what I like MOST about this software.
Vorteile: I like that it's a one stop shop! It catalogs our collection for easy searching, I can make lists within it that are private to me or I can share, I can also run any report I can think of and even program and schedule reports to be run and even emailed to teacher or students. When I use Title Wave to look up books that I am considering buying, it tells me if I already own it, cutting out the need to look up each title in my collection. The customer service is phenomenal and they always go above and beyond to make my job so much simplier.
Nachteile: Any issue we've had has been on then end of our district. We have people at a district level that can run updates or fix issues we may be having.

Eleven Years' Experience with Destiny!
Kommentare: Easy to catalog, circulate materials and send overdue notices. Keeping track of interlibrary loans and interlibrary requests is also a breeze with this software. In general the software makes a librarian's life SO easy!
Vorteile: I love the union catalog since it makes viewing the entire district's collection easy--at a glance! What a perk when requesting materials for students and teachers through interlibrary loan! Users can search items in many different modes and the circulation platform is amazing. Users can email or print overdue notices, you can enter various email addresses to send notices and cataloging is a breeze!

Easy to Learn, Great Customer Support
Kommentare: I use it to automate my library. I have used it for many years, have not had any problems. Occasionally the books are not in their system and the system takes a long time to let you know. Some restrictions are in place by my organization so I am not able to catalog new items. Generally been very pleased with the software. The customer service is excellent and they do respond to user suggested improvements.
Vorteile: It is very user friendly, easy to learn and use. The customer service is very friendly, always helpful. Been using it for years, never had an issue I couldn't resolve.
Nachteile: Can be slow at times if product is not in the system.

Kommentare: The Destiny program keeps me up to date on any data I need to look at. I can run from general reports to the most detailed about my collection.
Vorteile: The program is easy to use and understand. All the reports you need to manage a library are available and easy to use. The look is clean and easy to find what you need on the screen. The help menu has every possible question you could ask and provides visual of where you need to go or do.
Nachteile: More information on the specific books provided on initial check out screen rather than having to click further to get it.
