Flipster®, EBSCO Information Services’ digital magazine platform, has done it again, winning a platinum Modern Library Award for the third consecutive year.

The Modern Library Awards (MLA) aim to recognize impactful products in the library marketplace. 80,000 library professionals in the LibraryWorks readership voice their opinions on products in categories including library hardware, software furnishings and automation services. Top products are recognized based on voting scores.

This year, Flipster has been honored with a Platinum Award for the third year in a row, proving once again that the digital magazine platform is preferred in the library community.  

“Our library staff loves Flipster because it 'just works.' Each issue reads beautifully. It is our most easy-to-use online resource!”

Flipster’s ease of use and visually pleasing design are the main reasons why one library scored the platform so high. While the end-user experience is clean and optimal, it has taken a lot of work and dedication to get Flipster to this place — a feat developers take pride in, while also continuing to improve.

"A phenomenal product that has been integrated into our academic library. Our students, faculty, and patrons love Flipster!"

Flipster’s ease of integration onto a library’s homepage and its interoperability with different systems are other reasons why the platform scored well. The Flipster product development team has designed a digital magazine platform that enables libraries to offer digital magazines without compromising quality. Recent developments include:

  • The enhanced Flipster mobile app, available for Apple and Android products, which allows users to find their libraries and download digital magazines on the go.
  • The ability to discover Flipster content within EBSCOhost® EBSCO Discovery Service™ and Explora™ search results.
  • Hassle-free user login and authentication via many forms including Proxy, Shibboleth and SSO.
