When our board of trustees requested to have our library resources visible in the web, I sought for a new program because our current Athena system cannot provide access on the web.

I was introduced to Destiny Resource Management solution by our partner in USA Summer Institute of Linguistics since they were also using Athena before. So I invited Electronic Information Solutions to our office and they made a demonstration of the product called 'Destiny version 9'. I was impressed by the product. Also, when I heard that FEU and Union Church of Manila are using the same product I called them right away and made an investigation regarding their technical assistance and they gave me a good feedback about EISI's technical support. When buying a product, I will consider first the aspect of technical assistance, if they are 100% supportive of me and can easily respond to my call. Googletalk is always available for us to seek assistance from them. I requested two times for demonstration: first, with my staff, and second I invited the decision makers in our office together with our faculty and Finance administrator to watch the product demonstration. After the demonstration I asked them about the product and all of them gave a thumbs up sign, no words but thumbs up. And then I made a requisition to purchase the product.

What is good in the Destiny product?

  • Web-based design - searching the library collections can be done whether you are at home or at the office, and there are many additional features: like you can reserve and renew the book through internet.
  • Cataloging - the process of cataloging is not a burden for the librarian, which involves simple downloading and importing of the data from many sources. The original cataloging provides a selection to correct punctuations to be used. It will add to your collection in a real time.
  • Circulation - is so simple and friendly, there is lot of information displayed in one screen and a lot of features added to it.
  • Report - the report is customized according to your needs
  • Back-up - automatic back-up is easy to set-up
  • What is amazing is in Destiny Quest the top 10 books and new arrival books are displayed for your faculty and staff to be informed
  • Daily transaction and encoding are in the real time

  • Now, I received the new version of Destiny 9.5 with added features on it. I am contented with the product and I will recommend the Destiny software for your library. There are a lot more features in the product that I'm still discovering by manipulating the software.

    I attended the recently held 2 days seminar workshop on 16th MARC 21 Workshop Reloaded at the University of Immaculate Conception, Father Selga Street, Davao City last Nov. 27-28, 2009. That was a very interesting workshop, it’s not just a discussion but it also includes actual application, wherein every participant was allotted with one computer and the trainor teaches the participants the step-by-step process. I really learn a lot on the said workshop, especially during the actual hands on regarding the topics discussed, the speakers are very much eager to share their knowledge and expertise on the topics assigned to them. Attending this kind of workshop makes us aware and updated on the latest trends in the library profession. The introduction of RDA, makes us aware on how to adopt such changes in the technical aspects of cataloging. Learning really takes place in this workshop. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge to us.

    After a two-day workshop we did not fail to enjoy the beauty of Davao City, a tour on Peoples Park, Aldovinco, Bangkerohan Fruit Stand as well as the Paradise Island Resort in Samal Island. But of course we did not fail to visit San Pedro Church. It was a very memorable experience with my colleagues and EISI group. To the EISI Company, and the staff of University of Immaculate Conception Library congratulations to all of you that was a very successful workshop, the participants really enjoy your company and hope you will continue sponsoring this kind of workshop for the welfare of librarians.

    The following are the advantages of DLM Software [over] our Library system:

    1. Fast and easy organization of library holdings thru bar- coding, cataloging and classification;
    2. Easy retrieval of library information thru Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) compared to printed catalog where one scans so many cards before getting the result;
    3. Retrieval of information and checking of personal account is a great advantage when a patron is off- the- campus thru internet connection;
    4. More efficient and effective in terms of library circulation thru swiping of books and ID Bar codes.

    This is all we can say for now because we did not try yet the inventory and generation of reports.
