Apply to join the International Library Leaders Programme at the British Library, 3-10 July 2024

With over 170 million items in our collection, from Magna Carta to Shakespeare’s First Folio, the British Library is one of the world’s largest national libraries. If you are a mid-career library or archive professional, we invite you to apply to join us for the fourth International Library Leaders Programme, running in July 2024. Our intensive week-long programme of workshops, talks and tours given by senior staff from across the Library’s core departments offers the opportunity for an intimate group of international library professionals to meet our experts and learn from their experiences of dealing with the everyday issues facing libraries today.

While some of our services have been disrupted by a recent technology outage due to a cyber-attack, we expect the full programme to go ahead as planned.


Email us at international@bl.uk with any questions you may have and we will send you a downloadable brochure and more details about the programme including the Terms and Conditions, which we ask you to read and agree to before you submit your application.


Apply via our online application form before the deadline of 12:00 GMT on Thursday 8 February 2024.


We look forward to hearing from you and building the 2024 International Library Leaders network!
