Welcome to the International Librarians Mentorship Program

The International Librarians Mentorship Program (ILMP) is modeled after the International Librarians Network (ILN) Peer Mentor Program with the goal of assisting librarians from around the world to network and expand their skills in librarianship through a cooperative and collaborative program. This program is designed to be self guided, allowing participants to form a collaborative relationship with one another over a 4-month period.

In order to facilitate international exchange and partnership among librarians around the world, the ALA International Relations Round Table (IRRT) created a program proposal for a group of 2019 Emerging Leaders, based on the International Librarians Network started in Queensland several years prior. The Emerging Leaders team worked closely with IRRT in order to implement a pilot program that replicates the successes of the ILN in a sustainable way and closely aligned with IRRT values.
