BCHS Electronic Card Catalog & e-Books
BCHS students can access an electronic card catalog of all the BCHS learning center books via a new app on their iPads, Destiny Quest. Catalog searches and 'hold requests' can be made via the app. Books on hold can then be picked up at the center. Search results (excluding searches for novels) also may include links to pertinent websites, along with books currently in the BCHS center. The quality of the website links is routinely screened by the Follett Library System.
When not using their iPad, searches can be made via this url: https://bishopchatardlibrary.follettdestiny.com.
The student's personal login will be needed to place a hold on an item.
e-Books at the Center
Students can also check out any of the center's over 150 electronic books through the same Destiny Quest app, and read them via their Follett's Reader app on the iPad. They can also be downloaded for offline reading. Although checkout length may vary by book, in general they can be checked out for 5 days, after which they will disappear from the reader app. eBooks can also be checked out via PCs or Macs using the url above and can be read there also.
For your iPhone or iPod touch: Download the new Follett Digital Reader TextFlow app to your iPhone or iPod touch. Through this app, you can read offline, read it on another device and the eBook will automatically return on its due date.
