As the ILN program rolls out of pilot mode and into our first ‘proper’ round, we are excited about the future of the program and seeking people to share that excitement with us. Maybe you have been a participant in the pilot program and would like to get more involved for the next round, or perhaps you feel that you would rather be an organiser than a participant. Whatever your motivation, being a country coordinator may be for you.
Country coordinators act as liaison points for each country. If you are in New Zealand, for example, and you want to know more about the program, you could speak to the New Zealand coordinator. We expect that country coordinators will have a good understanding of the professional network in their country, and we ask them to use this network to recruit participants to the program. We would also expect that country coordinators would contribute to the website and online discussions.

After that, if you are interested in joining us as a country coordinator, the next step is to check whether we already have a coordinator for your country. The list of country coordinators does change from time to time so it’s worth checking even if you think your country may be already covered – for example we looking for the UK and Australia right now.
As always, you can ask questions in the comments, on twitter using #interlibnet or by contacting us directly.
