The International Librarians Network: New Round Begins March 2016

IRRT Member,

IRRT has teamed up with the International Librarians Network to offer IRRT members an opportunity to sign up to be partnered with a librarian from another country for a three month facilitated professional networking opportunity! The links below will take you to a sign up form. The deadline to apply is February 15.

The International Librarians Network: new round begins March 2016

Want 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 early March 2016.

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 3500 librarians from 120+ countries take part so far.

Applications for the next round of partnerships will open in mid-January and close at midnight on Monday, February 15, 2016. 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.
