Ya I think I'll work with IT on setting up a one-step log-in rather than
going through separate log-in for Destiny. (Currently kids just use Destiny
to search & e-mail me if they want something pulled.)
ANOTHER QUESTION: Once logged in, students can put a hold on books BUT
there's no "check out" option. Does the option to borrow an e-book
automatically appear once e-books are added to the collection? Maybe I
need to search around admin more....
