Run in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, the Travelling Librarian Award builds relationships between library and information professionals in the UK and their counterparts in the US and across the Commonwealth through a professional development study tour.
The award of £3000 covers flights and some accommodation. Normally the visits last 2-3 weeks and take place during the autumn. The successful candidate is free to put together their own programme of visits (although help and advice is available). Where possible, the recipient is encouraged to take up hospitality with ESU branches in the US and international ESUs across the Commonwealth.
To be eligible to apply, candidates must be:
a) UK library and information professionals and;
b) a member of CILIP at time of application.
The deadline for applications is : MONDAY 27 APRIL 2015
