Can't find that important RILINK email or monthly newsletter?

Select emails sent by RILINK Staff to the list are now being archived on www.rilink.org. Emails with updates related to Booklynx, Destiny, ILL, and professional development will be posted for easy reference.

Get to Know LibWizard

Did you know you have access to LibWizard, a suite of 4 web-based tools to create forms, surveys, quizzes, and assessments/tutorials? Use your RILINK Schools login to explore this tool or view the Springshare video.


Sharon is looking for sites to offer two after school sessions to run from 4-7 to "kick off" the training for this member benefit. Please contact her at sharon@rilink.org if you are interested in hosting.

ILL Training

New to your library and need ILL training? Please complete this survey by Friday, Oct. 6 to help us schedule viable virtual training sessions at the end of the month.

Important Reminders!

Change in Delivery of Professional Development

Delivery of professional development is primarily being offered "on site" this year. Check out the options at http://guides.rilink.org/home/onsitepd. Virtual sessions will be arranged when appropriate.


Placing ILL Holds

Holds for ILL must be placed in Destiny Classic. RILINK recommends students and teachers only see local holdings in Destiny Discover, are able to exit Destiny Discover, and place their interlibrary loan requests in Destiny Classic. If you have any questions or need any assistance with this, please contact a staff member.

Video Tips!

RILINK Staff are busy at work creating short videos to answer frequent questions asked about Destiny and LibGuides. Have a request? Send it to sharon@rilink.org.

Attention LibGuides Users!
