Founder and CEO
Director, Research and Innovation Division
With traditional professional development upended by the pandemic, information professionals and their teams seek new ways to analyze, develop, and share their expertise. Since 2018, Skilltype – a human resources technology startup and LYRASIS – a non-profit software provider and membership organization, worked independently to create novel solutions to modernize scholarly professional development. In July 2020, the two organizations partnered to deliver a joint solution to academic libraries to analyze staff career paths, develop in-house expertise, and respond to evolving demands for new expertise from their stakeholders. Join two leaders from this collaborative initiative to hear case studies from current libraries and a roadmap for future developments.
