Log into Destiny, and click on Help in the upper right-hand corner. Search for [One Search Overview]. On the resulting page, click on the link to view all the supported One Search databases. If you are logged in, the link below will take you directly to this list. All of the databases that you can set up in OneSearch are listed. If a "translator" for a particular database is currently being updated, the list will tell you that this database is temporarily unavailable through One Search.
One Search comes with free, preloaded databases to get you started. You can change the default list by adding or deleting databases.
How to set up One Search
Here’s how to provide links to the resources in AskRI.org, free resources on the web, plus your own video-streaming and online database subscriptions.
If you haven't already done so, you will need to turn on OneSearch in the Site Configuration|Site Info tab in your site's Back Office (remember to Save). Your Follett customer number must be in the Site Customer Number box. (Screen shot)
If you want students and teachers who are not logged in to be able to use One Search, you will also need to check Search One Search as Guest in the Guest Access Level in your Back Office. You must also edit any other Access Levels that you want to see One Search results. Choose the Teacher setting for Teachers, so that they will see the databases that you set up for them to access using One Search. (screen shot)
Then set up OneSearch in the Catalog tab by clicking on Search Setup at the bottom of the left-hand column. Under Enriched Content Searches, choose OneSearch from the options listed, and add the databases that you want to include. (If the list of available databases does not display the first time, close the empty window, and choose to edit OneSearch Database Information again.) One Search comes with free, preloaded databases to get you started. You can change the default list by adding or editing databases and removing them. If a particular database has already been set up for your site, you can find and edit the settings for it by clicking on Edit Databases. If you are adding a database that hasn't already been set up for your site, click on Add Databases. You can add any of the free databases, any databases to which you subscribe, or any options for World Book or EBSCO that are available through AskRI.org. (screen shot) Choose the database or group of databases that you want to Add or Edit.
When you choose a database or group of databases, a new screeen will open. For any database in a group that you want to add, you must select it by checking the box in the left-hand column. (screen shot) If you want the database to be added to the links in Destiny Discover, you will also need to check that column. You can also choose to make a database available only to teachers, and not students. Note that links added to Destiny Discover by One Search will use the button logos assigned by Follett, cannot be edited, and will appear in the beginning left-hand position in the display. (Currently on 1/24/2021 you cannot change the order of the links.) You can choose to display links at the top of the Destiny Discover page as well as in the Links carousel. As you can with any other carousel, you can move the links carousel to any position relative to the other carousels, including eBooks, Audiobooks, Topics, Recently Added, etc. (screen shot)
Important note: There are a number of options to be considered when selecting a database to be included for searches using OneSearch in your library. Be very selective about the databases that you want to Preset as a selected search in Destiny Discover, as they will appear in the Links ribbon in the first positions in the list. Databases that are preset as selected will be searched EVERY TIME a search is done in your catalog, with the results displayed on the OneSearch tab. You will want to preset as selected only those databases that will be most useful to your students. Having too many choices in the search results can be more confusing than helpful. Databases that you want to have available, but not searched every time, should not have this option checked. Databases that you choose, but that are not preset as selected are available on the Power Search tab in the Destiny Back Office Catalog tab. (screen shot)
If you want students and teachers who are not logged in to be able to access a particular database, you must choose the option to Allow Guests to use the database. (screen shot) You can also choose to let students or teachers WHO ARE LOGGED IN, to see search results from a particular database by selecting the corresponding option. Guests should not be granted access to any of the databases for which your library has a subscription agreement for access only by your school's students, teachers, and staff.
Parameters that you will need to set up World Book and EBSCO databases that are available through AskRI are listed elsewhere on this page.
The username for EBSCO databases in One Search is in this format: [CustomerID].Main.eitws, for example: ns145913.Main.eitws The password for almost every RILINK member is ebs5173. Find your CustomerID.
