    337- Media
    338 Carrier Type
    Susan's Notes
    Destiny Meeting 4-1-14
    FERPA violation – student in district had an access level that allowed him to see phone numbers and addresses for all students in school; could result in a federal offense if information is used to perpetrate a crime
    To prevent FERPA issues: Back office – Access Level – Patron (edit)
    Library Materials Tab – ONLY check things under Library Catalog Search Access
    Patrons Tab – ONLY check things under Self-Empowered Patron Access
    Cannot access library check out history – against state law (Michigan Library Privacy Act PA 455)
    General Tab – CANNOT check Access Library Checkout History
    If you want kids to be able to track their own library history, they can set it up in MyQuest
    Can always create new access levels for staff, but students should always be patrons
    Any questions? Call Follett Support!
    If you’re not satisfied with support or your issue isn’t resolved, get the ticket #
    FERPA protects the education record – personal identification information (address, etc.), test scores, grades
    Don’t use administrator access log in for daily use – use library administrator access level for daily work
    Follett News – 3 divisions of Follett are combining, as of 4-1-14
    Will need to provide another tax exempt form to Follett
    All purchase orders will now be made out to one name/address
    Will only have one Follett rep and one technology rep; Shelly Jilek is our technology rep
    Only one website for everything – www.follettlearning.com
    Follett Community button on Destiny page – kind of like Facebook for Follett
    12.0 – released in May – Big Release! – Universal Interface – integration with eBooks, tagging
    May 8 – What’s New in 12.0 Webinar
    Destiny 11.5 New Features
    More transparent eBook access
    Green E = Follett, will show In or Out or Unlimited Copies
    Blue E = Other publishers, will show x of x available

    Wayne Oakland –Library Leaders Mtg on eBooks at Hillside MS in Northville (Judy sent invites)
    Resource Lists
    Linked to a particular teacher/log in, so lists are deleted if teacher is deleted

    Public lists can be transferred to a new owner (man with green arrow icon appears in list view if it can be transferred)
    Can’t transfer if you are already sharing ownership with someone
    In edit mode, new area available to “Add Co-Owner” – can add anyone in entire district

    Need to give students access to comment and library administrator access to approve
    Back Office – Access Levels – Patron – Self-Empowered Patron Access – Recommend titles to other uses and/or Approval Not Required and/or Allow comments on recommendations
    Back Office – Access Levels – Library Administrator – Administrative Access – Process Unapproved Recommendations

    What's new in 11.5
    Ebook access Follett is making ebooks more transparent for students. Follett shelf is reserved for Follett ebooks. OverDrive and others will have a page and then it will take you to the book you want. The green E icon means user will go to the Follett shelf. The blue E icons are other vendors. Notes by Follett ebooks will tell you whether it is in or out, but the other icons will just tell you how many you own. The open button will take you to the portal to login and then open the book. The Universal Search for digital items coming out with 12.0 will make ebooks more transparent. Patrons will not care where the book comes from. Some ebooks have USA ( Unlimited Simultaneous Access) which is sold to one entity.
