Alan Hopkinson Award

Following Alan Hopkinson's death in 2016, a trust fund was set up to enable one CILIP member per year to attend the IFLA World Library and Information Congress (WLIC). Alan Hopkinson was an active member of CILIP ILIG from 2004 until his death. As well as regularly attending IFLA conferences, he was very interested in assisting young professional librarians from developing countries. He was involved in the Commonwealth Fellowship scheme and in training young professionals from Eastern Europe.

Congratulations to Ivan Donadello who received the 2018 Award to attend IFLA WLIC in Kuala Lumpur!

The 2017 Alan Hopkinson Award winner was Charlotte Brown who attended the IFLA Congress in Wrocław.

Anthony Thompson Award 

This award, usually made every three years, enables a qualified library and information professional from outside the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) to visit and study some aspects of UK library and information work for two to three weeks.

Anthony Thompson was the first full-time Secretary-General of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) from 1962 to 1970.  Following his death, in 1979, a trust fund was set up for the study of international and comparative librarianship. This is is the origin of the Anthony Thompson Award.

The Award is a CILIP award, managed for CILIP by ILIG. It was first awarded in 1983.  and has been made, usually every three years, since.

Avis Holder, the Project Manager (Digitization) in the Library Archiving Unit for the Office of the Parliament for Trinidad and Tobago, was the Anthony Thompson Award Winner in 2016. She visited in July 2016 and met with librarians from throughout the UK, as well as attending the 2016 CILIP Conference in Brighton.
