ILN Logo

Are you interested in building your professional network and learning about librarianship around the world? Do you love the idea of professional travel but just don’t have the budget? The International Librarians Network (ILN) may be for you.

The ILN peer mentoring program is a facilitated program aimed at helping librarians develop international networks. Having connected over 1500 librarians from 103 countries, participating in the ILN brings wider professional awareness, an international perspective to your work, new ideas, and increased professional confidence.

The next round of this program will commence in March 2015. Applications are open from 15th January 2015 and close at midnight on Sunday 15th February 2015. Numbers are limited, so apply early to ensure your inclusion.

The ILN is open to anyone working in the library and information industry around the world. The program remains free and the only requirements to participate are an internet connection, fluent English skills, an hour each week and a desire to build professional connections and learn from colleagues.

If you’re interested you can find out more about the way the program works, or apply online.

The ILN is an independent program run by program coordinators in Australia, and supported by an international network of volunteers. The ILN program coordinators can be contacted at
