Edge is currently only available to public libraries. The Edge Benchmarks, on which the Toolkit is based, were designed to evaluate the public access technology available at public libraries and many of the questions are not applicable to school, academic, and special libraries. In addition to the intentional design of Edge specifically for public libraries, school and academic librarians who have reviewed the Assessment have expressed that Edge is incompatible with their operations.  


Please feel free to take a look at our Toolkit guide and download the Edge Assessment Workbook to review the questions. If you have any feedback about the possible applicability of Edge for school, academic, and special libraries, please let us know.
