South Africa Country Coordinator: International Librarians Network


The International Librarians Network is a facilitated peer mentoring programme that starts it’s next round in September.

Country coordinators act as liaison points for each country. If you are in England, for example, and you want to know more about the program, you would speak to the England coordinator. Country coordinators are responsible for recruiting people in their country to the program.
Country coordinators are also expected to contribute content to the website and online discussions.

Karen du Toit has applied and was accepted as the country coordinator for South Africa. She has signed up for her fourth round (including the first test round), because it has proved to be of so much value to her own professional development.

Karen du Toit – South Africa Country Coordinator

Karen is a radio archivist in the SABC Radio Archives at the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), the national public broadcaster in South Africa. She has been working in archives and libraries at the SABC for nearly 25 years. She loves how technology and social media has changed the library and archives profession, and the fact that librarians and archivists are the change agents in this process.

Karen tweets at @karentoittoit and blogs at Karen’s 23 Mobile Things (personal) and SABC Media Libraries blog (corporate), while keeping the SABC Media Libraries website and social media sites updated.
