Signing In
Students must sign in at the circulation desk
whenever they are present without their teacher
at the library. Teachers are encouraged to
schedule their classes with the librarian for
library research.
How to Find a Book and Other
Destiny, produced by Follett Company, is the name of
the online public access catalog (OPAC) used at Texas
High School Library. It is through this OPAC that users
are able to find out what library materials are available at
Texas High School Library.
Access Destiny by going to the following web address
(URL) or to the library’s home
page or to the TISD homepage, click on “For Students.”
How to Search
Materials may be searched by a basic search:
Keyword, Subject, Author, Title, or Series.
Once the search term(s)/word(s) has/have been
typed in, click on the icon that matches the type
of term(s)/word(s) you have used.
A list of materials matching your request will
appear if the materials exist in the library’s
collection. Materials may also be located
through the advanced search, which requires a
request with more detailed information.
The Search Continued
If a list of materials matching your request does
appear, the list will contain the title of each item,
the author, the publication date, and the call
number. Whether or not a certain item is
available will also be shown in the list.

item. To create a list of materials for a
bibliography, click on Booklist It.
An icon representing the type of material
(book or other) will also appear next to the
title of the item.
Search: The Call Number
The call number (a number and the first
three letters of the author’s last name) will
indicate where in the library that the
materials you need are located. Example:
822.3 SHA
The number 822 represents English drama. Placing .3 with 822
signifies drama of the Elizabethan period. The first three letters SHA
are for the last name Shakespeare.
Call numbers class materials into subject
areas according to the Dewey Decimal
System of Classification.

located at the front of the circulation desk.
A late fee of five cents a day is charged to the student for overdue
