Reignite your wanderlust with a peek at the International Librarians Network, a group that connects peer librarians across the globe for a two-way sharing experience over email and video chat. The current round of matches was just made, but you can follow along in blog posts and plan to sign up for the next time.

This program is an excellent reminder that a library career is not incompatible with glamorous international travel. I love hearing about colleagues travelling to conferences like IFLA (in Singapore this summer) and ECIL (in Istanbul next month), so stay tuned for interviews with globetrotting librarians!
