Levels are part of the Edge framework. Each of the Attributes (questions) is assigned a Level. A Level represents how much time and resources library staff need to implement a recommendation. 


Level 1 attributes are considered foundational f or all library types. These resources, activities, or

programs are generally simple and low cost to implement.

Level 2 attributes are generally applicable in most library communities, though a community needs

assessment may reveal that some of these resources and services may not create as much value to

the community as others.

Level 3 attributes are generally more costly or difficult to implement but are at the forefront of

innovative activities, resources, and services that will help put the library at the center of digital inclusion

in the community.
