What is OPAC?

OPAC stands for Online Public Access Catalog. It is the place to go to find out what books and resources we have in our library. Here’s a bonus! Our new Destiny program allows you to access it from any computer with Internet access!

How to navigate OPACDestiny is a browser based program. For this reason you should not use the back button to return to a previously viewed page. Instead, use the bread crumbs. This is the trail created when you view pages and is located in the green bar at the top of the page.

Use these breadcrumbs to return to previous pages
