Malcolm X is quoted for “the future belongs to those who prepare for it today” and we believe investments in automation and intelligent management in libraries will help the libraries now and, in the future, to not only follow the demands, but also being those who sets a high expectation to be information specialists for patrons and a central part of local communities.
Supporting that mission Lyngsoe Systems offers products to help manage the modern library and we are extremely proud to be supported of our users and receive the users own prize – Modern Library Award (MLA).
The MLAs were created to recognize the top products and services in the U.S. library industry in an unbiased format. Only customers with experience with the nominated products and services in their facilities were permitted to judge the products/services resulting in an unbiased score. We are the proud receiver of two platinum awards at Library Works’ fourth annual Modern Library Awards.
“We are extremely happy that the library community is seeing and feeling the benefits from the products we provide. We couldn’t be prouder and will continue to deliver the high-quality standard that our customers have gotten accustomed to” says Lyngsoe Systems US President Cory McCoy.
The two awards are given to products which are well-known installations around U.S and in many other countries around the world and we expect to see even more of them in the years to come.
The Lyngsoe Library Mate™ 2100 received its third annual platinum MLA award in a row. It’s an exterior patron return designed specifically to endure outdoor weather conditions and is easy to use for patrons while eliminating repetitive tasks for the staff.
The Lyngsoe Sort Mate™ 2000, the modular AMH sorter system also received platinum MLA award. Designed to allow fast, silent and precise sorting for flexible adaption to any small or big libraries and challenging premises.
With the statement “no library too big, no library too small” we want to point out that our solution can be scaled to fit any need and because of the modular form it can be expanded to fit future needs, so it is possible to build the system you need now and expand it for increased needs in the future.
