The ILN uses a model where all participants are treated as equals who have valuable experiences to share. This means that partners are not placed into established mentor/protégé roles, but rather are encouraged to view their partnership as a way to learn from each other; all are mentors and all are protégés.

So why participate in the ILN peer mentoring program?
Through the ILN program you can:
  1. Rediscover your own valuable skills by sharing your experiences with your partner
  2. Gain new perspectives on your profession
  3. Build your professional network with colleagues around the globe
  4. Find new ideas that you can use in your library
  5. Develop new professional skills
Need more reasons to apply, check out our report, Rethinking Mentoring: online, international peer-mentoring with the International Librarians Network 
Interested? Applications are now open for the next round of the ILN – it’s an amazing opportunity to get your very own international peer-mentor (and be one too) and it’s completely free. But hurry applications must close Sunday 7 August 2016!
