Compare

After completing an Edge Assessment, it is time for your team to gain a better understanding of the results by comparing your data with peer libraries from across North America. This phase of the Edge process equips your library to identify clear gaps and areas for improvement in your current programs, resources, staffing and planning.

Peer Comparison Reporting

Edge's robust peer comparison reporting tool provides a clear and statistically significant overview of how your library's Assessment results compare to libraries in the U.S. and Canada that serve a similarly sized population. This interactive report allows users to collapse and expand sections to provide flexibility in how your library reviews and shares its comparison data.

Custom Comparison Reporting

In addition to comparing your library's Assessment results to the statistically significant data determined by the 2018 Representative Sample, Edge allows your library to contextualize its results by selecting a wide range of comparison filters. Users may explore how their library's results compare to ULC members libraries as well as libraries in their region, state/province, operating revenue and Peer Group.
