Today, we are pleased to share that Annual Reviews has become Skilltype’s newest strategic partner through a minority investment. Similarly to Skilltype’s other investors, Annual Reviews supports the development and training of information professionals. This prepares them for an exciting and fulfilling future.
Founder and CEO of Skilltype, Tony Zanders, states, “Libraries, and institutions that support them, are enriched by developing people. This is because people are their most important asset. The corporate sector has done this for years. However, the specialty software and technology needed to catch up are expensive to develop. Ongoing investments allow us to develop quality tools for libraries and their employees to increase capacity in emerging areas such as artificial intelligence, diversity and equity, leadership development, and more.”
President and Editor-In-Chief of Annual Reviews Richard Gallagher commented, “This strategic partnership, and our 2023 acquisition of the Charleston Hub — home of the Charleston Conference — recognizes the central role of the knowledge community to the progress of research and education. We offer enthusiastic support to Skilltype in their endeavor to empower the global library workforce to deliver impact for decades to come.”
