Getting an Edge in the Digital Age

September 29th, 2016 | 2 - 3pm ET | 1 - 2pm CT | 12 - 1pm MT | 11 am - 12 pm PT

ULC is launching a new collaborative effort among ULC member libraries to highlight how technology – one of the library’s most valuable resources – supports strong communities.

Join us for an informational webinar to learn more about Edge, the nationally recognized management tool that empowers libraries to assess and improve public technologies. Using Edge, our profession’s new leadership tool, we plan to tell our collective technology story to elevate what libraries do to support strong local economies and meet community needs around education, jobs, and health. By using Edge you’ll be able to:

  • Measure the effectiveness of library technology services
  • Benchmark your services and capacity against national standards
  • Create a roadmap for improving services to better meet community needs
  • Build local understanding of the library’s value to the community

This webinar is available only to ULC members and we’ll discuss how Edge works, the benefits of participation and answer any questions you may have about joining the ULC Member Edge Collaborative.

We hope to see you online on September 29th for the webinar. Should you have any questions please contact Kristi Zappie-Ferradino, Program Director, Edge at 202-750-8662 or via email at kzappieferradino@urbanlibraries.org.
