LEID Products Receives Second Platinum in 2021 Modern Library Awards from LibraryWorks.
Auburn Hills, MI – LEID Products, whose SmartAxess™ Secure Asset Control Systems for Libraries lead the industry in self-service, electronic access lockers, is pleased to announce it has received its second consecutive Platinum Award in LibraryWorks’ seventh 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 received remarkably high scores from the librarians that participated in this award. We hear it from our customers frequently, and it’s nice to hear it from library leaders from throughout the country, especially now when libraries are struggling to find new ways to continue to serve their patrons during the ongoing pandemic” stated Peter Kujawski, President, LEID Products.
SmartAxess Library Systems enable libraries to provide their patrons with true 24/7 touchless access to books and materials when curbside pickup is not practical, ensuring not only patron safety, but the safety of library staff as well. SmartAxess electronic lockers are ADA compliant, robust and reliable for outdoor installation, and designed to provide patron access with enough ground clearance to stay clear of snow accumulation or rain backsplash. Libraries can also enjoy new levels of efficient operation through more accurate inventory control and tracking.
Jenny Newman, publisher and MLA program manager said, “It’s hardly a surprise that LEID Products scored so well. They’ve been at the forefront of the industry since their company entered the market.” One of the librarian judges cited in the award report said, “LEID lockers provided us a safe way to continue to deliver library materials to patrons, when we had to close our doors due to various levels of quarantine or shelter in place.”
