Destiny Outages

In the recent past, we've had issues with server outages that affected access to Destiny. As a result, we have found a solution to help with maintaining the ability to check in and out while the system is down.

The application is called Follett Remote and needs to be downloaded and installed on your desktop. The application is available in Self Service for the Macs and Software Center for the PCS. We have developed this guide to get you started with downloading, installing and using the application.

Please work with your CRT if you need help installing the application. If you need further assistance, please complete this form to make an appointment with our staff.
