Reasons why I am signing up again for the International Librarians Network

ILN peer mentor

I have applied again for this round at the International Librarians Network peer mentorship programme.

I have experienced that even though I sometimes don’t get a very engaged peer mentor, I still get much worth from the discussion points and networking opportunities through social networks.

My reasons for applying to become a peer mentor at ILN:

  • Meeting a librarian from across the world whom I would never have met otherwise.
  • Learning about the library profession globally.
  • Having a peer mentor to ask questions about my daily challenges, and not feeling as isolated about our challenges here. The challenges are universal!
  • Learning about different sections in the library from a librarian in the field.
  • With each round I am able to add a new global connection to my networking circle! It’s great to say that I now know a librarian in England, Australia, Bangladesh, Spain and Zimbabwe!

It’s worth signing up each time!
