The Edge Assessment is a “point in time” assessment. This means you should answer questions based on the services your library offers today. For example, if you do not offer a service at present, then select the most appropriate “no” answer:


No, but plan to do so in the next year

No, would like to but cannot at this time

No, we have no plans to do so at this time


For additional guidance, please go to the Indicator details and assessment answer key section of this site. It provides guidance on how to answer each assessment question.
