Helen Wallis Fellowship at the British Library

This annual, named fellowship offers a convenient and unusually privileged working environment in the British Library. The Fellow will be treated like a member of staff (i.e. not restricted to reading room hours) and will be provided with their own work-station, with an e-mail account and access to the Internet. In addition, they will be entitled to 300 to spend on Library services.

The award honours the memory of the former Map Librarian at the British Museum and then British Library, Dr Helen Wallis OBE (1967-86) and confers recognition by the Library on a scholar, from any field, whose work will help promote the extended and complementary use of the British Library's book and cartographic collections in historical investigation.

Preference will be given to proposals that relate to the Library's collections and have an international dimension. The fellowship may be held as a full or part-time appointment, and would normally be for 6-12 months.

For the full terms of reference please contact: < maps@bl.uk >. Or write to: Peter Barber, Head of Map Collections, Map Library, The British Library, 96 Euston Road, London, NW1 2DB, U.K., mentioning that you saw this notice on 'Map History'.

The closing date for each annual award will be 1 May
