Peter Johan Lor on ICL
Thinking through this experience, I realized that my current involvement in the International Librarians Network's peer mentoring and partnership program is an ICL activity. I have been exchanging emails and blog entries with my Polish friend, Wanda Sliwowska, a school librarian in Poland, for over a month now. You can read the ILN introduction I wrote in this link. Wanda has made a blog since our "convo" and email exchanges. I also learned from her that they have a school librarian association in Poland. Our last topic of discussion in the ILN program was about games in the school library. While Wanda has started organizing a game board collection, I still have to study and explore this possibility in our school library.

It covered librarians working in schools, academia and universities. In a nutshell, there is work to be done in school librarianship across Asia.
We can start rolling our sleeves and go to work by answering this survey:
These are all for now on the IAFOR / 5th LibrAsia Conference.
