Destiny Classic has a simple white background and allows for the most advanced and detailed catalog searches. 
  • Basic search:  Search for materials by title, author, subject, keyword, or series.  Narrow searches by material type, reading or interest level, and other criteria.
  • Power search:  Use when you're looking for a more specific type of book such as a biography of a musician or a murder mystery.

Reviewing books in Destiny

Student reviews help other students to decide if they want to read a book.  

To review a title: 
1. Log in to your account. 
2. Find the title of the book you want to review.
3. Navigate to the review tab.
4. Add review.
5. You can just indicate the number of stars you want to give the book (5 is highest)
or you can write a review as well. 
6. All reviews are approved by Ms. Doherty before they're posted.  
7. You don't need to add your name to the review, but you may if you'd like to.  

Good reviews should include several of these elements:
  • The genre of the book
  • Introduce the protagonist -- age, gender, race, anything else important to the story
  • Provide a glimpse of the plot -- but no spoilers!
  • Compare it to a similar book
  • Tell the reader what you particularly liked/disliked about the book                                                                    and back up with specifics.
