I have been adding links to our awesome research database into our Destiny Discover catalog by utilizing a recent Destiny upgrade. Doing this allows you to search Destiny not only for books but also for information contained in our many research databases with a single search. That is right, one search! That means you can search magazine database like EBSCO's History Reference Center, newspaper databases like U.S. Major Dailies, ABC-CLIO's World History: Ancient and Medieval Eras, and the many subject-specific encyclopedias available through the Gale Virtual Reference Library from the Destiny Catalog. This has the potential to be a real research game changer. However, I need you to help me work out the kinks.
For starters, you must log in to Destiny Discover (MUHS.edu/Quick Links/Library/Library Online Catalog link located on the left-hand side of the page) using your MUHS username and password in order to access database results.
Begin your search using the Destiny Discover search box. The books and videos that match your search criteria will display as usual. To access information from one of our databases, click on the "database" link located below the search box and above the list of books. This will lead you to a list of results gleaned from our many databases. Click on the icon that looks like a "chain link" to view the result. Be patient. It can take a few minutes for the information to load.
We are in the beginning stages of testing this and would sure like to hear from you about ease of use, the reliability and accuracy of the result list, login issues, and off campus access (you may still be asked to login).
Try it and let Mrs. O'Hara know how it works.
