Kicking off 2023 with platinum!
Meescan is pleased to announce that we have received a platinum award in the ninth 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 2023, product submissions were sent to more than 80,000 librarians for scoring.
“After receiving gold distinction in our first Modern Library Awards in 2022, we’re thrilled to receive platinum distinction in 2023,” says Robyn Petrik, Manager of Business Development. “It reflects our efforts in always bettering our products and services. We’re always focused on improving self-checkout solutions for libraries and providing an innovative, memorable experience.”
Thank you to all of our partner libraries for your continuous support and feedback. We actively work to take in feedback so we can provide the features that libraries need the most from their self-checkout.

About the Modern Library Awards program
The Modern Library Awards (MLAs) is a program designed to recognize elite products and services in the library 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.
