I attended the International Librarians Network first webinar on Saturday morning at 12am South African time. Although I have been through 3 ILN peer mentoring programmes already, it was the first time that an introductory webinar was held.
They made use of anymeeting to conduct the webinar. It had to be downloaded to my iPad, but it was extremely easy to use!
I was glad that I stayed awake on Friday night to hear the voices of the ILN programme coordinators.
we have 572 participants from 72 countries this round, wow! #ILNwelcome

I have had peer mentors from Australia, Indonesia, Spain and now from Manchester in the United Kingdom.
It is also exciting to see all the country coordinators from around the world.
The most important message that I am taking with me is that we can take up issues with the programme coordinators, and rather sooner than later. I have been very lucky with regards my own peer partnering, and have learnt much from my international peers.
Thank you very much, International Librarians Network! I appreciate all your efforts, which is voluntary and must take up a lot of your time!
