The MLAs are selected via a rigorous, unbiased process. Products and services are submitted for consideration in the fall via a simple application, and then posted on a private site with an enhanced description and attendant materials. The applications for 2021 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 those with experience with these products/services in their facilities were permitted to judge the nominated products/services. Each judge scored the product/service from 1–10 on a series of questions regarding the quality, functionality, value, customer service, and overall satisfaction with the product or service.
"We are honored to support librarians whose work plays such a vital role in the education, enrichment, and personal advancement of learners across the U.S.," Sandi White added.
