"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.

The ILN peer mentoring program is a facilitated program aimed at helping librarians develop international networks. We are pleased to announce the next round of this popular program will commence in September 2014."

Great opportunity for librarians and archivists to extend their own professional connections and development!
