Note: Access Level settings determine whether your patrons can access WebPath Express results. This setting is found on the first tab for each Access Level under and also determines whether a patron with that Access Level can make WebPath suggestions.
WebPath Express gives your students instant access to thousands of relevant, grade-appropriate Internet sites with just one search, directly from Destiny. By selecting WebPath Express from the left-hand column on the Catalog tab, your patrons can search for information on the Web. They can find the subject they need in several ways: searching, browsing, or clicking through the Visual Search pictures. Using any of these methods, they can view or print the lists of websites and library materials about their subject. They can also narrow search results using filters. See WebPath Express™ Filters in Universal Search. They can also add chosen web sites to a Resource List.
Destiny also includes websites in search results for searches performed in Library Search—Basic, Power, and Visual—and in Destiny Quest—basic, Advanced, and Visual. If their search results lists are very long, they can apply any of several filters to narrow it by format, grade level, type of source material, domain type, language or related topics.
You can make suggestions for added WebPath Express entries on the upper right-hand corner of the Spotlight page, if your Access Level is set to allow this.
You can generate a WebPath Express Statistics Report by clicking on Library Reports in the left-hand column of the Reports tab. This report will help you evaluate usage and identify heavily accessed subject areas. The report lists the top terms and topics and the number of times each was used, in descending order. It also includes a total for the number of searches.
Then run a report for searches with no results, and you can submit any or all of the terms as suggestions for new WebPath Express entries:
