WHS Online Catalog

How to find a book

Click the link for WHS Online Catalog on the right. This will open a new window with access to the library catalog. The home page, called Destiny Quest, is a fun, colorful way to search for books and explore your account details if you log in.

Using Destiny Quest

The default search tool for the library is called Destiny Quest. It is broken into several easy to use sections.

Search

The Search Box

Click to Zoom

In the “Find” box type the name of the book, author or subject you are looking for and click “Go”. Note the options at the top as well. You can login with your district account info to place holds or see what you have checked out. You can also exit Destiny Quest for a more traditional search.

Top 10

Top 10 Books

On the left side of the screen is a list of the top 10 most checked out books. It also tells you whether or not the book is currently available.

Resource Lists

Special Lists of Books

In the center of the screen are the Resource Lists. These are created by teachers and students and shared. You can also create your own lists for class projects or just books you would like to read so you don’t forget. Books used for research papers can also be added making the citation process easier.

New Arrivals

New Arrivals

Finally, the “New Arrivals” box on the right shows the 15 most recent books added to the library. This updates only when new books are added and will not show all titles if more than 15 were purchased. For a full list of new books be sure to check the Resource Lists.
