Pros: about the only thing that I have found to be above average at all is the ability to include searches to other subscriptions within the interface

Cons: Way to many functions require too many 'manual' steps. Media Specialists / Librarians should not have to have the amount of technical knowledge that it takes to perform basic functions.

Overall: It was the one in place when I started work here. I would not have chosen this software.

Pros: ease for training new staff

Comments: For the database that it holds, it is quite a resource hungry system.
Based on a Microsoft SQL server, it lacks the agility of some of the Linux based systems.

The managed hosting on Follett's cloud servers tends to have lags which might interfere with day-to-day workflow of the librarians.

We are using this software in our school.

Comments: It's very easy to access because it's web based. Aside from that it has the application that we can download through our gadgets to access our collections in the library. And also it has so many resources that are scholarly made and very interesting. It has a titlepeek which makes our searching easy because the title page is given.

Comments: I am a school librarian. When I walked into my new library and clicked on Destiny for the first time, I was able to navigate the program without any training or assistance. It is extremely easy to use and self explanatory. However, support is always available if there is a question.
