EBLIP 9: Embedding and Embracing Evidence

Have you registered for EBLIP 9: Embedding and Embracing Evidence yet? I can’t believe we’re up to nine conferences! It seems like both ages ago and just yesterday that we were working on EBLIP 2 in Edmonton in 2003.

I`m thrilled to be providing the Closing Keynote this year: EBLIP and Everyday Practice for Librarians and our Libraries.


Leadership & Management Principles

Happy to be teaching again next semester in the UofA online MLIS program with Kathleen De Long — LIS 504: Leadership and Management Principles for Library and Information Services.

So pleased I get to do the good work of public libraries and still keep a foot back in the academy. Love both!

Being Evidence Based in Library and Information Practice

The amazing Drs. Denise Koufogiannakis and Alison Brettle have gathered together a super group of evidence based library and information practice researchers and practitioners in this new publication from Facet Publishing (Facet is part of CILIP, the UK library association): Being Evidence Based in Library and Information Practice. I’m proud to have contributed along with Dr. Becky Cole on the chapter on Public Libraries. Here’s the link to the OA version of the chapter because of course I arranged in my publishing contract the ability to make it openly available!
