School Library Services: Automation and Technical Services

Follett Destiny® is a state-of-the-art integrated library automation system that provides a union catalog of more than 850,000 shared holdings for participating districts. This system has a dynamic K-12 educational platform that includes a federated search system to retrieve results from print, online, database and other digital content resources from Universal Search.

OPALS (Open-source Automated Library System) is a powerful cooperatively developed, web-based, open source library automation program. This alternative technology provides Internet access to information databases, library collections and digital archives. The OPALS union catalog now houses more than three million titles, and uses the Internet to communicate and manage the ILL process.

The service includes MARC record downloads and enhancements, patron loads, technical support for software and server, working with districts to customize their sites, linking to databases and digital content, half day of on-site PD, and attendance at user group meetings.

Additional components include on-site coordination, project management, e-book integration and bibliographic collection development  services. Library Automation and Technical Services staff assists districts with any library technology initiative through comprehensive planning, proposal generation, procurement, financing, monitoring, installation and support.
