The Grant is an award of up to €5 000, which is given to a CENL member library project that promotes international collaboration and strengthens bonds between CENL libraries. The grant proposal can focus on any aspect of international library collaboration including:

  • development of collections (physical and digital)

  • educational or cultural services including exhibitions
  • promoting interlibrary staff communications
  • infrastructure development
  • staff development
