VALA was excited to receive six outstanding entries this year for the prestigious VALA Award.
In front of an enthusiastic audience of 100 at the VALA end-of year event, the winner of the 2014 VALA Award was declared to be Curtin University Library App.
The Curtin Library App provides access to Curtin Library resources and services via a mobile app that can be used on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. The app enables real-time, personalised, context-sensitive information, with the ability to make bookings for library items and facilities.
Congratulations, Curtin University Library!
We were delighted that Karen Tang, Associate Director, Corporate Services at Curtin University, was present to accept the award.
