Monthly discussion: What is international librarianship?, by International Librarians Network | The Information Professional |

What is international librarianship? In thinking about writing this post, we came across this definition from 1974 and present it here as a starting point for some discussion.


The International Librarians Network was started to try and give the opportunity to individuals to make connections with like minded professionals from around the world. If we use this definition from Parker as a starting point we can ask ourselves:

How can we go about bringing an international perspective to our work?What does it mean to be an international librarian in 2013 (and beyond)?How do you do it, and what benefits does it bring?What are the issues that span borders?
