Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for librarians

Travelling Librarian Award

The Travelling Librarian Award builds relationships between library and information professionals in the UK and their counterparts in the US and across the Commonwealth. Participants undertake a professional development study tour to explore areas of their professional interest through visiting relevant libraries, information centres and associated agencies.

The award of £3000 is intended to help promote the exchange of ideas through effective communication in the English language, to facilitate learning between cultures and nations, and to encourage the pursuit of best practice within a particular field of professional expertise.


The ESU provides applicant notes, which offer more details about the scholarship and provide the selection criteria for applicant's proposals, to which candidates should refer in their covering letters.
