In mid-2011, the Riverdale Libraries on both River and Hill campuses unified their card-catalog and on-line resources with Follett's on-line Destiny Card Catalog. This allows patrons on either campus to view the holdings in either library. Patrons with a Riverdale Domain username and password can login to the Destiny catalog to view their Library account. This will enable patrons to save book lists, view resource lists created by other patrons, get a list of checked-out books, renew books, and access on-line databases through the card catalog search.
