British Library

The Fulbright British Library Eccles Centre Award covers a six-month research project for an appropriate discipline at the institution.

The Eccles Centre for American Studies works to increase awareness and use of the British Library's extensive collections of books, manuscripts, journals, newspapers, maps, sound recordings and other materials related to the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.

Founded in 1991 by David and Mary Eccles, the centre works in collaboration with the Library's Americas curatorial team and external partners interested in the promotion of North American studies in the UK.

The centre runs a lively and diverse events programme, funds research, provides training about the North American collections, and produces bibliographic guides and web exhibitions designed to introduce users to the quality and breadth of the collections.
