Destiny Library Catalog Explained

Destiny is the library catalog that allows you to search for books, DVDs, audiobooks, ebooks, and even digital media that the district provides through all 8 of the Wilson libraries.

Your school may use the more colorful home screen called Destiny Quest by default, but you can "Exit Quest" (top right corner) if you prefer.  Exiting Destiny Quest also allows you to access more features and search options.


World Book Online Encyclopedia Explained

The World Book Online Encyclopedia is available with no login when your computer or mobile device is on school property.  For home access, please ask your teacher-librarian or see the Wilson Libraries Passwords link. 

This searchable database is useful for quick access to accurate, reliable information. A full MLA citation for each article is at the bottom of each web page.
