SAGE: A Recent Investment and an Acquisition

Technology From SAGE, a division of SAGE, invested in Skilltype, a talent management platform. SAGE notes, “Using a controlled vocabulary of information science competencies, interests, and trainings, Skilltype identifies and closes skill gaps across the library while simultaneously enabling librarians—regardless of their degree or job title—to manage their personal learning and career development.” By investing in Skilltype, Technology From SAGE can help libraries with recruitment and with filling vacancies.

In addition, SAGE acquired Epigeum, a provider of peer-reviewed online courses for higher education, from Oxford University Press. SAGE states, “Epigeum’s in-house team collaborates with experts from around the world to develop courses that help institutions transform their core activities in research, studying, student support and wellbeing. Used by over 200 institutions globally, Epigeum’s courses allow universities to supplement in-person instruction with engaging and effective digital resources.” The acquisition helps expand SAGE’s portfolio of online courses and is a complement to SAGE Campus.
