Edge Technology Benchmarks

Partner of Edge

Launched in March 2011, the Edge initiative is an effort driven by a coalition of leading library and local government organizations to develop a suite of tools that support continuous improvement and reinvestment in public technology. The Urban Libraries Council is leading this Initiative.

Edge will help library leaders:

  • Collect local data to assess the use of public access technology,
  • Identify ways to strengthen or enhance public technology, and
  • Present data that showcases the outcomes the library is achieving for the community in such areas as workforce development, educations, and health and wellness.

Menomonie participated in national beta testing of the measurement tools.
