The library staff is happy to set aside books you wish to check out. Start the process by using the "Library Online Catalog" link to the left instead of the search box below. This will take you to the official Destiny catalog search page. You must be logged into Destiny to place a hold on an item. Click on the "Login" button located in the upper right-hand corner of the page. Log in using your MUHS username and password. To place a hold, click on the "hold" button located below the item record. This will generate a hold notice. The library staff will check these notices several times a day and pull the book(s) you have requested. Give us a few minutes and then stop by and pick up your book(s) at the Library's Information Desk.

Musings of the Doerr Librarians

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.

Kalahari by Jessica Khoury has been picked as our December Book Club book and it is a winner!

From Goodreads: "When an educational safari goes wrong, five teens find themselves stranded in the Kalahari Desert without a guide. It's up to Sarah, the daughter of a zoologists, to keep them alive and lead them to safety. Battling dehydration, starvation and the pangs of first love, she does her best to hold it together, but soon a terrifying encounter makes Sarah question everything she's ever known about the natural world. A silver lion makes a vicious, unprovoked attack on the group. After a narrow escape, they uncover the chilling truth behind the lion's silver sheen: a highly contagious and deadly virus that threatens to eliminate life as they know it."

Copies of Kalahari are available at the library's information desk.
