Sarah P’s comments: When I started international work in 1996 there were no organizations like this (the internet was in its infancy). It’s really great to see the library schools promoting more international cooperation and reaching across borders. I truly believe, having lived overseas for so long, that librarians are the diplomats of democracy and that the work of open information sharing is important for the development and equality of all.
