“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.”
