Taft High School is participating in a pilot of Destiny Library Manager
software. Destiny Quest is a next-generation library catalog with customizable features including graphics, Web 2.0 technologies, and social networking.
If you have a Single Sign-On LAUSD mymail e-mail account many new features will be integrated and available remotely for you! Visit the Taft library media center to pick up your AUP (Acceptable Use Permission) form, SSO LAUSD my-mail account application and learn more in the next few weeks about these resources.
