LYRASIS and Skilltype Join Forces for Info Pros' Professional Development

LYRASIS partnered with the Skilltype software platform for info pros to create new professional development and talent management opportunities in the worldwide GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) sector. LYRASIS notes, “After two years of research and development, Skilltype is making its platform available to the global GLAM sector through an exclusive distribution partnership with LYRASIS. … [Skilltype’s] design-centric approach levels the playing field by removing many of the barriers to accessing quality training opportunities, including those who rely on assistive technology.” In addition, “Skilltype for Teams, the firm’s enterprise offering, enables organizations to analyze, develop and share expertise. This paid subscription platform is now available exclusively through LYRASIS, with a discounted rate for LYRASIS members.”

“The content from LYRASIS Learning will provide a wider range of professional development opportunities within Skilltype, and the personalized interface of Skilltype will help employees find the right LYRASIS Learning resources for them. And in a time of resource constraints, anything we can do to streamline business processes, through combined billing for example, is a positive,” says Paul Bracke of Gonzaga University’s Foley Library, which was a Skilltype development partner and is a LYRASIS member.
