  • All DCSS computers should have a destiny icon.
  • Here is the Tucker High School Destiny homepage. At this point, you can click on the catalog tab at the top and use the system as a guest. However, by logging in, you get access to several added features that guests cannot. I’ll talk about these additional features a bit later.
  • Look at the screen for a moment. Notice the 3 tabs at the top. You will always start at the homepage screen. The added benefits are 1. you can see what items are checked out to you by clicking on the “my info” tab. 2. You are able to create a Resource list and make it public (I’ll show you how to do this a little later) 3. It makes emailing lists to yourself a bit easier if you are logged in.
  • There are different search screen options. These are listed on the tab menu near the top of the screen. The ones that you will be using the most are the first three. We’ll talk about each of these during this presentation. There are also 5 search limiters. These are listed below the search box. If you simply type something into the search box and hit enter, you will be executing a keyword search, which means your search terms can be located anywhere in the record of a particular item.
