News: Join the International Librarians Network

8/25/14 – International Librarians Network

This group has come to my attention recently and I have been following their blog.  They offer a potential way to gain some international exposure because their aim is to help librarians develop international networks.

Here is some brief info from their site, visit it for further information:

Participants in the program are matched with others outside their country, based on the information they provide to the program coordinators. Partnerships are made for a fixed term, and during this period the partnerships are supported by regular contact and discussion points led by the program coordinators. Supported partnerships have an end date, however it is our vision that participants would develop a widening network of ongoing, independent professional relationships.

The International Librarians Network is run by volunteers all around the world. Program coordinators match participants, support the partnerships, and manage the website. Country coordinators act as in-country contacts and support for participants, and promote the program within their country. Program participants share their experiences, opinions and ideas to create an international network of librarians.
