PLA Edge Benchmarks

Check out this post at Public Libraries Online.  They've been working on a new initiative to help libraries evaluate, improve, and promote the way public access computers are being used, and can be used, to strengthen communities.  This is the list of  Edge Benchmarks.  They include standards for digital literacy training, staff education & support, and continuing evaluation of library programs & systems to ensure that the community's needs are being met.
According to the blog post, in the future the program will include tools to help libraries meet these goals including online assessments, training programs, and marketing materials. 
Great stuff!
