Skilltype Teams Features

With Teams, heads of library departments, supervisors, and  group leaders will be able to quickly see the skills and interests of team members to recognize and encourage learning.  Whether your library is a single branch or a large system with committees and projects, you’ll be able to use Skilltype Teams in a way that makes sense for your organization’s work and structure.  

Teams provides managers with a single place to find expertise: 

  • Staff skills, product experience and interests
  • Learning activity across a team 
  • Answers to questions like: “Who can take on this project or task?” 

The beauty of Skilltype Teams lies in its adaptability. You can configure Skilltype Teams to offer insights, regardless of your library’s size or your organizational chart’s complexity. By centralizing this information, you can make data-driven decisions that are in line with your organization’s work and structure.
