It is Round 2 of the programme. There was an experimental round, which was followed up with Round 1 in 2013. Both rounds of the peer mentor programme were very successful.
This is a great way for Information Professionals, which includes librarians and archivists, to network and mentor with like-minded peers from around the world.

(ZA time: 10:49)
There seems to be great care taken in matching up partners. As a previous participant in the ILN programme I have connected with two librarians, one from Jakarta, and one from Melbourne, and I have found it to be very informative and beneficial to my own professional development. We are keeping in contact with each other. I will be signing up again!
