Follett Destiny

In mid-2011, the River and Hill campus libraries unified their online catalog and began using Follett's Destiny Library Manager. Patrons with a Riverdale domain username and password can login to the Destiny catalog to view their library account, reserve holdings from either campus, save book lists, view resource lists, and renew books.

Online Subscription Databases

Riverdale subscribes to several online databases to serve the information needs of our school community. The River and Hill librarians work with the academic technology integrators and teachers to identify databases that provide direct support of Riverdale's curriculum. Patrons can access information from scholarly journals, newspaper and magazine articles, and video and image content through these subscription databases. On-campus access to these databases requires no login. Off-campus access to these databases requires users to authenticate using Google.
