UK and Scandinavian cultural services and technology expert, Axiell, regularly presents an award to recognise the Digital Cultural Institution of the Year.
This year the award was presented at its prestigious two-day symposium ‘Rethinking Libraries?’, held in London on 2-3 November, for senior managers from archives, museums and libraries across Scandinavia and the UK.
The 2011 theme for the award was “going digital to increase value for end users”.
"The winner, Jönköping School Library Service, Sweden, was chosen for its tremendous success in enabling students, teachers and parents to work digitally 24/7 through its use of Axiell Arena’s library web portal to develop an online digital knowledge bank and to support learning in innovative ways. In the proposal it was mentioned that the school library service in Jönköping has been a front runner and the first school system to develop its services in such an innovative way."
