RILINK Monthly Newsletter

Big image
The RILINK Staff wishes all our librarians and library staff a very successful opening!

We will share monthly updates to member benefits with links to more detail on www.rilink.org. Time sensitive announcements will still be sent to the list.

Share this guide with your teachers! Use it to educate them as to the rich resources that come with RILINK membership. Show them how Destiny is more than an online catalog of books in the library. Explore with them the many cross curricular uses of CultureGrams and Exploring Nature Educational Resource. Make them aware of all the wonderful resources available to them to AskRI.org.

Don't forget RILINK offers onsite professional development for CultureGrams, Destiny, Exploring Nature Educational Resource, LibGuides, and LibWizard.

A special shoutout to Jim Monti from WWPS for his Collections Tutorials

Have Professional Development Your Way!

RILINK is changing the way professional development is being delivered. Onsite professional development sessions may be requested by school librarians, schools, or districts.

Online sessions via Any Meeting may also be requested by school librarians. Email Sharon Webster for more details.

How to Create a Link to Your Catalog in Destiny Discover

  1. When logged out of Destiny, click Destiny Discover on your Catalog tab.
  2. Wait for the Search screen, and copy the URL. It should look something like this: https://search.follettsoftware.com/metasearch/ui/48993/
  3. Use this as a link to your catalog from LibGuides, your district web pages, the library web page, etc.

Don’t see your school name when you get to Destiny Discover?

Click on the triple bars on the top left of the screen. If you would prefer that your library’s name would appear on the opening screen, please submit an enhancement request to Follett by going to https://t.co/eqwD9jVbdf and logging in. To create an account, you will need your Follett Customer Number, which you can find in Site Configuration|Site Info in your Back Office. We are using Version 15 of the Destiny Library Manager software.
