The Seattle Public Library wins 2011 Ingeniux Site of the Year Award

The Seattle Public Library

The Seattle Public Library has been named winner of the 2011 Ingeniux Government/Nonprofit Site of the Year award.


Ingeniux Corporation is a leading provider of Web and social content management software. The Ingeniux Site of the Year awards program recognizes those customers and partners that created outstanding websites using Ingeniux software.


Ingeniux customers voted on nominees in three categories: Higher Education, Association/Government/Nonprofit, and Corporate.


The Seattle Public Library strives to bring people, information, and ideas together to enrich lives and build community. Ingeniux said that the Library's "website is an essential tool in delivering on this mission.
