Tutor.com Receives Platinum in 2022 Modern Library Awards from LibraryWorks
Company Designated Multiyear Honoree
NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2022 /— Tutor.com, one of the world's largest online tutoring services, is pleased to report that its Learning Suite for Libraries has received a Platinum Award in LibraryWorks’ eighth 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 an unbiased score.
Each judge scored the product on a numeric basis from 1–10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer service, and other categories. Honored for its Learning Suite for Libraries, Tutor.com received the highest possible distinction of Platinum in this year's awards program.
"We are thrilled to be a multiyear Platinum awardee," said Sandi White, SVP, Institutional, Tutor.com. "Every student deserves a personal tutor, and we are honored to partner with thousands of libraries across the country to provide no-cost academic tutoring and job support. We are grateful to the librarians who served as judges for their time and unbiased consideration of the nominated products and services."
