Library spaces we love | International Librarians Network | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Discussion topic 2 of the International Librarians Network is about the library spaces we  love. The country coordinators are each giving an account of a library space that they have visited or belong to.

Library Juice » International Librarians' Hosts Directory

"The Hosts Directory is [...] a list of international librarians who are willing to host, for a day or two, a fellow library and information worker who is visiting their city or region. Hosts are located across the world – please see the Map of hosts at www.tinyurl.com/CILIPHostsMaps . All information is anonymous and you will not be put in contact with a guest without agreeing beforehand – the idea is that you will be able to stay with a professional colleague when attending a conference, event or just travelling abroad rather than in a hotel.

All you need is a spare bed or room and the desire to meet colleagues from other countries, to share experiences and to contribute, in a small way, to building bridges to international understanding and co-operation within the library and information profession. Guidance for potential Hosts is also available online at www.tinyurl.com/CILIPHostsGuide.

Karen du Toit's insight:

Great idea for international networking for librarians!
