Updates for Everyone

An Upgraded Search Tool 

Skilltype’s Central Index, featuring an ever-expanding collection of training resources, events, and organizations, has surpassed 11,000 items. With daily additions enriching our extensive database, we recognized the need for an upgraded search tool. This enhancement is specifically designed to align with the sophisticated needs of information professionals, ensuring you can navigate our growing and complex index with ease and precision.

You’ll be able to easily find relevant training and events to build your skills through Skilltype’s new search, including skills such as artificial intelligence. 

The most significant enhancement to our search tool is the integration of advanced filtering and faceting capabilities. By incorporating facets for our skills and products vocabulary, we’ve streamlined the process of identifying the most relevant training resources and events. This targeted approach is designed to assist you in developing the skills necessary for your current role and adapting to the evolving landscape of our industry.

Furthermore, we’ve integrated Skilltype’s controlled vocabulary into the search tool, enabling swift and efficient access to relevant training and events. Now, you can easily explore the full range of topics on our feed pages, each richly populated with targeted content to enhance your learning and development experience.

For instance, if you’re interested in increasing your outreach skills and want to focus on students in particular, our enhanced search functionality allows you to search and filter for these precise criteria easily. This feature saves time with streamlined access to Skilltype’s training resources. 

Searching Skilltype for “Outreach” enables you to quickly identify training in video format with a focus on students.
