(29 August 2018) Over four years, the International Librarians Network (ILN) provided free online peer-mentoring to over 5,500 participants from 130 countries. Participants used the program to explore the international world of librarianship, building global networks and sharing knowledge with colleagues around the world.
In March 2017, the Directors of the ILN announced that they were discontinuing the ILN’s peer mentoring program. In announcing the shut-down of the program, the Directors hoped to encourage other members of the library and information community to build on the successes of the ILN to create their own professional development programs. This report was created to document the processes used to run the program and the lessons learned.
