Evidence-Based Library and Information Practice Conference

July 14th, 2011

At the start of this month I was lucky enough to wangle my way into a sponsored practitioner place at the 6th international Evidence-Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP) Conference, which was held in Salford in the UK this year. It was a fantastic conference, with lots of food for thought about developing and evaluating my everyday practice. In returned for our sponsored places the LIS Research Coalition asked us to write up a day of the conference each. My write up of day one is available on the LIS Research Coalition blog and I wrote a little bit more about EBLIP overall on the University of Leicester library blog.
