2023 MLA Awards Winner
Today’s Science Awarded Platinum Distinction
NEW YORK – Infobase Holdings is pleased to announce that its acclaimed Today’s Science STEM database has received a Platinum award in LibraryWorks’ ninth annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs). This prestigious distinction was based on the judgments of the LibraryWorks readership. 80,000 library professionals across all types of libraries were surveyed regarding quality, functionality, value, customer service experience, and overall satisfaction.
On a scale of 1 to 10 ranking overall satisfaction, with 1 being “least satisfied” and 10 “most satisfied,” Today’s Science scored an impressive 8.53. “We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from librarians and teachers after adding Infobase’s Science Online and Today’s Science to our statewide resource collection,” one judge said. “The platforms are easy to navigate, and the content fills the previously unmet need for high quality science resources.”
Jenny Newman, publisher and MLA program manager, remarked, “It’s hardly a surprise that Today’s Science scored so well. This user-friendly resource is chockful of authoritative articles distilled from major scientific journals that researchers can trust.”
Today’s Science bridges the gap between the science taught in class and real-world discoveries-giving in-depth explanations of important advances in biology, chemistry, the environment, space, physics, and technology in accessible, easy-to-understand language. The original articles, derived from peer-reviewed journals and other authoritative sources, offer easy access to related content such as crossword puzzles, cartoons, and discussion questions; additional articles that help place news and discoveries in context; and interviews with working scientists that bring their research to life. An extensive backfile dating back to 1992 illustrates how one scientific advance leads to another; the stories focus on the questions scientists ask themselves and, in doing so, reinforce science educators’ traditional emphasis on the scientific method.
This essential STEM resource shows how the scientific method can be applied to everyday life to help students think like scientists. Plus, the fully responsive design, intuitive navigation, easy access to key content, eye-catching images, and other features make Today’s Science an efficient, effective, and user-friendly experience.
