Patron Point receives Platinum Award again in 2022 Modern Library Awards from LibraryWorks

Dublin, OH - January 18, 2022. Patron Point is delighted to announce it has received a Platinum award in LibraryWorks' eighth 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.

Ian Downie, Vice President, Growth at Patron Point commented "We are extremely proud to receive this award for the second year running. Not only does it recognize the product is leading the way in library marketing, it highlights our ongoing innovation and investment in product development. It was fantastic to see the positive customer comments not only about how good the product is, but how responsive and helpful our support and account management teams are in helping the libraries improve their marketing. It is a great testament to the hard work the team put in here and we are very grateful for the continued support of the hundreds of libraries that subscribe to Patron Point."
