Charleston Library Conference 

Apr 19, 2022

Join us for our latest podcast episode featuring a conversation between Tony Zanders, Founder and CEO, Skilltype, and Matthew Ismail, Editor in Chief of the Charleston Briefings and Conference Director. Tony and Matthew discuss the start of Tony’s professional career in the entrepreneurial world of Silicon Valley, his customer-centered work at ExLibris from 2009 to 2014, and his move back home to New Orleans, where he became a part of the startup/entrepreneurship community. A few months later, EBSCO took advantage of Tony’s unique expertise by hiring him to integrate their EBSCO databases into third party software platforms. In 2018, after conversations with selected library directors about underserved areas in library operations, Tony founded Skilltype, a startup that centers around creative library professional development in an era of staffing austerity. Tony is a long-time attendee of the Charleston Conference.
