There is only one week left to apply for the next round of the ILN’s peer mentoring program. In case you still need convincing to sign up we wanted to share with you some words from past participants about what impact participating in the ILN had for them:
- “It has expanded my view of the world and the opportunities available for professional development. There are no excuses for not making things happen.”
- “Reminds me that we are part of a wider global community and that our profession is bigger that just the local networks that we can create. Another group of people to tap into for ideas and discussion.”
- “I feel more connected to the profession and feel personally revitalised.”
- “First and foremost, it’s made me think. I often think that problems we are experiencing are ours alone when, in fact, our problems seem to be pretty universal. It’s nice to get an international perspective.”
- “Inspiration for library programs; helped me put some work issues into perspective; helped me feel like I “belong” in public libraries.”
As you can see, there’s lots of reasons to sign up for our next round. Don’t forget, it’s important to know what you’re signing up for – so check out how the program works . Applications for the next round of partnerships are now open but must close Monday 15th of February 2016.
The ILN is open to anyone in the library and information industry around the world. The program remains 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.
So hurry, don’t miss out: apply online now!
