March 31, 2011. Follett Software Company (Chicago, Illinois) announced this week that the One Search™ subscription service is now fully integrated into Destiny® Library Manager™, and will be available free to Follett customers who have upgraded to the latest Destiny 9.9 version and maintain a current support agreement.

The Destiny Library Manager-One Search integration becomes effective Friday (April 1), said George Gatsis, vice president of product management, marketing and development for Follett Software Company.

“One Search is a great way to help the Librarian/Media Specialist assist teachers and students in the learning process and support the library,” Gatsis said. “We hope this addition will help support our customers’ goal of improving information literacy and strengthen the value of Destiny in their library, while concurrently keeping an eye on the budget.”

Current One Search subscribers will be able to access all the service’s online resources that they have in the past without incurring any additional fees. A complete list of the supported databases is available by visiting Follett Software’s web site under “Enriched Content Subscriptions.”

Existing Destiny customers seeking details about activating their One Search subscription in Destiny, or for additional information about One Search, contact the Philippine Distributor, Electronic Information Solutions Inc at eisi@eisi.com.ph.

In early January, Follett Software unveiled Destiny® 9.9 with a host of dynamic improvements that allow existing Destiny Library Manager™ (and Destiny Textbook Manager™) customers to save time, increase efficiency and help drive student achievement.

Last January 22, 2011, twelve employees  and associates of Electronic Information Solutions Inc (EISI, Makati, Philippines) took time out of their busy schedules to volunteer for a worthy cause.  They came to organize, deliver and turn over books donated by UST Engineering Batch 1986 (USTEng86) to the Aklatang Panglungsod ng Dasmarinas (APD, Cavite).  The book donation was a silver jubilee activity of USTEng86 and was initiated by EISI Managing Director Reuel Avila, who is an alumnus of UST College of Engineering.

USTEng86 alumni were able to gather around 130 books which was labeled, sorted and boxed by EISI volunteers.  Aside from donating its own share of books, EISI likewise provided food and transportation for the volunteers and the several boxes of books.  More books will be solicited throughout 2011, for which EISI employees volunteer their services to prepare the donations and transport the books to the library.

The staff of  APD prepared a short program to mark the donation turnover ceremony.   A handful of kids from a nearby street children shelter were treated to a story-telling session conducted by Mrs. Grace Babol, EISI Area Representative.   On hand to receive the donations were City Councilor Hon. Jacinto B. Frani, Jr,  Ms. Vanessa Olaes, Officer-in-charge, APD, and Ms Sonia Gementiza, APD consultant.

APD is a priority project of Mayor Jennifer Barzaga with the cooperation of Congressman Elpidio F. Barzaga Jr. of the 4th District of  Cavite.  It provides an extensive collection of books, a children’s area, a theater, computer facilities and numerous community activities year round.  The donated books will be used in the library or disseminated in the various barangay reading center.

We are pleased to do our small part in promoting literacy in our country.
