6555466069_5d373bf1cc_oWant to build your professional network and learn about librarianship around the world? Love the idea of professional travel but just don’t have the budget? The International Librarians Network (ILN) is for you. We are pleased to announce the next round of this popular program will commence in mid-August 2015.

The ILN peer mentoring program is a facilitated program aimed at helping librarians develop international networks. Participating in the ILN brings wider professional awareness, an international perspective to your work, new ideas, and increased professional confidence. We know this because many of our participants tell us – and we’ve had over 2600 participants from 112 countries take part so far.

Applications for the next round of partnerships are now open and close at midnight on Sunday 26th July 2015. Numbers are limited, so apply early to ensure you don’t miss out.

The ILN is open to anyone working (or studying) in the library and information industry around the world. The program is free and the only requirements to participate are an internet connection, fluent English skills, an hour each week and a desire to build professional connections and learn from colleagues.

Get involved now! Find out more about the way the program works, or apply online.

    I have participated in two previous rounds of matching for the International Librarians Network. I highly recommend this as a great way to develop your international professional development and networking skills. I’ve had the pleasure of forming great connections with librarians in Ireland and Australia as a result. It’s free and a terrific opportunity. Do it! Apply today!
