PeerLibrary won the Highest Impact award at Meteor Hackathon 2013

PeerLibrary, a project I am currently working on, won the award for Highest Impact at Meteor Hackathon 2013. This is how they describe the project:

Peer Library is like Rap Genius for academia that adds crowdsourced notetaking to academic papers. Users import academic papers in PDF format, view papers in-browser from the library, and make inline comments on selected text in each paper. Users can share those comments and view other people’s notes in real time. They also implemented searching for papers by title or journal. Team: Mitar, Gheric Speiginer, Tony Chen.
