Facet Publishing have announced the release of Being Evidence-based in Library and Information Practice
This new book by Denise Koufogiannakis and Alison Brettle takes an open and encompassing approach to exploring evidence based library and information practice (EBLIP) and illustrates how librarians can incorporate the principles to make more informed decisions in the workplace.
EBLIP is an approach to professional decision making which involves, questioning existing practice, gathering or creating evidence, using information or evidence wisely, and using professional skills to help others.
Being Evidence-based in Library and Information Practice develops and rethinks the original EBLIP model and builds upon Booth and Brice’s seminal work, Evidence Based Practice for Information Professionals (Facet, 2004).
The editors of the book said, “This book brings together recent theory, research, and case studies from practice environments across the broad field of librarianship to provide librarians with a new reference point for how they can use and create evidence within their practice in order to better meet the needs of their communities”.
Dr Denise Koufogiannakis is Associate University Librarian at the University of Alberta Libraries in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Denise co-founded the open access journal Evidence Based Library and Information Practice and has held several editorial positions since the journal’s inception in 2006, including Editor-in-Chief from 2009-2011. Denise has contributed numerous research papers to the scholarly literature of EBLIP, and has served on the Program Committee of the international EBLIP conference series since 2003.

the University of Salford, UK.
