EDMONTON, AB - January 25, 2017 – Stacks, the leading library and research web platform, is pleased to announce it has received the platinum award in LibraryWorks’ fourth annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs.) The MLAs were created to recognize the top products and services in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Products and services were submitted in the fall using a simple application, and then were posted on a private site with an enhanced description and attendant materials. These products were batched into small groups and sent to the LibraryWorks database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers with experience with these products/services in their facilities were permitted to judge the products/services, resulting in a truly unbiased score. 

Each judge scored the product on a numeric basis from 1-10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer service, etc.

“We are honored to have received such a prestigious award based on the scores awarded to us by our customers,” said Kristin Delwo, President & CEO of Stacks “Working with some of the world’s most prestigious libraries illustrates the power of Stacks. The Stacks web and mobile platforms are helping to create powerful and effective library and research experiences for organizations of all types and sizes across the globe.”

Based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Stacks is ushering in the new library and research experience for organizations around the world. Stacks seamlessly combines easy-to-use content creation and management tools with a structured back-end that has all the building blocks for creating powerful library and research experiences.
