A great start to 2022!
Meescan is pleased to announce that we have received a gold award in the eighth annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs) held by LibraryWorks!
The Modern Library Awards are awarded to the top products and services in the industry, according to criteria such as functionality, value, and customer service. For 2022, product submissions were sent to more than 80,000 librarians for scoring.
“We’re excited to be part of Modern Library Awards for the first time, and honoured to be recognized by the judges with gold distinction,” says Robyn Petrik, Manager of Business Development. “Our small team has worked hard to build and expand Meescan, particularly through a couple of whirlwind pandemic years. We’re looking forward to continued growth and partnering with more libraries for self-checkout solutions.”
The Meescan team takes a lot of pride in being a unique, affordable self-checkout solution for libraries and providing exceptional and responsive customer service, so we’re thrilled that libraries are perceiving this.

About the Modern Library Awards program
The Modern Library Awards (MLAs) is a review program designed to recognize elite products and services in the market which can help library management personnel enhance the quality-of-experience for the library user and increase the performance of their library systems.
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.
