Destiny Discover

We know that you love to search for educational resources using Google’s amazing search engine.  But sorting through millions of results can be time consuming and often yield unwanted results. What if when you searched Google, it also searched your District owned educational resources and displayed them within the Google search results? We introduce to you a Chrome Extension that merges Follett results with Google results.

Destiny Discover is a Chrome Extension that gives you the experience of searching on Google, but also injecting resources from your District. This extension pulls in resources such as Books, eBooks, Lightbox, Webpath Express and more.

Install this extension

Once you install the extension, you will need to configure it to search a specific school in your district.   Simply open GoFollett.com, search for your school and go to the Destiny Discover homepage. Your extension will be automatically configured to search that school.  If you wanted to switch schools, simply open GoFollett.com again and search for the new school you want to switch to, then go to the Destiny Discover homepage.

Please note: You must be on Destiny version 13.5au1 or higher for the extension to work. If you are a Follett hosted customer, you are on the latest version.

graduated  Destiny Discover extension has graduated!  The core development team has picked up the work on this project and have released it to the public.

  1. This is very cool! WE would be very interested in having something like this available for our school.

  2. Hi Follett Labs,
    This application would be fantastic. Please continue to develop this. Despite all the features in ‘Universal Search’ that allow students to access our small section of the “Hidden Web,” a large number of students still try to access their resources from Google. This application would take our catalogue directly to them, the way they search the web.
    I love that it shows the cover images – great for our visual learners.
    Looking forward to this being available.

    Needs to be developed for other countries e.g. Australia with google.com.au
