‘Working internationally for Libraries’ Webinar

Webinar Wednesday


Working internationally for libraries

 ‘Working Internationally for Libraries’ is CILIP’s initiative to promote collaboration and partnership between libraries in England and their international counterparts.

The project is funded by Arts Council England and will run in partnership with the British Library, British Council, and Libraries Connected. The project will focus on English public libraries to develop a programme of activities including grants & travel bursaries, an international conference, and a showcase of successful international projects.

The Working Internationally for Libraries Grants programme is open for applications from November 2019, and is an excellent opportunity for public librarians in England to collaborate with international partners through innovative projects.

The Webinar will focus on helping librarians understand the grants programme and develop ideas for international collaboration. By the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Understand the value of international working for public librarians
  • Understand what grant funding is available and how to access it
  • Firm up ideas for international projects

The webinar will also introduce librarians to the upcoming Working Internationally for Libraries conference (2020).
