  • Genrefication Improvements Follett continues to increase its genrefication support to help librarians and media specialists flip their libraries to more of a bookstore-like model.
  • Revised Job/Report Manager Functions Allows both Destiny Library and Resource Manager users to navigate directly to the report output without the need to manually refresh the page.
  • Assess Fines for Resource Components Users will now be able to quickly and easily assess a fine when a component is lost or not returned.
  • Global Renew Enhancements  Users can save time and effort by batch updating renewal dates on items based on a variety of criteria, including the patron’s graduation year, grade level or patron type.
