What Librarians Are Saying

"Our budget is limited, but so is our time. This helps us make the most of both, and really gives us something to show our board." 

"The State of the Collection report tells us how we're doing compared to peers, and then I can take action with Edelweiss+Analytics."

"It's hard to know how well we're really doing and how we can improve. These tools make it so much easier."

"I never realized how useful it would be to learn from other libraries AND independent bookstores."
