EBLIP 9

Love having these visual notes made of my Evidence Based Library and Information Practice conference closing keynote!

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.

Was thrilled to provide the Closing Keynote this year: EBLIP and Everyday Practice for Librarians and our Libraries.

Being Evidence Based in Library and Information Practice

2016-09-29_11-24-36The 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!
