March 7, 2023 – Skilltype, the talent management platform for libraries, announces that it has raised $1.75M to future-proof libraries globally.
Skilltype’s mission is to modernize the library workforce with data-driven skill development. We believe libraries are more critical than ever to the advancement of the towns, universities, and communities they serve by increasing access to quality information. The fourth Industrial Revolution and its digital shift has caused unprecedented challenges for libraries to meet a community’s information needs, calling for a radical rethink of what skills are required and how they are acquired. This calls for new software, business models, and collaborations designed from the ground up to help libraries serve an increasingly diverse and distributed community in 2030 and beyond.
