The 10th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference is being held in Glasgow from 17-19 June.
In an era of library de-funding, calls for accountability, fake news, and complex information environments, evidence is becoming more important. The conference theme of ‘using evidence in times of uncertainty’ will encourage evidence based practitioners and researchers to think about what evidence is, how we collect it, and how we use it in these uncertain times.
Clinical Librarian Kevin Burgoyne and Assistant Librarian Rachel Playforth will be in attendance, sampling sessions such as:
- Building health sciences librarians’ capacity for evidence-based practice
- Reflections on the role of expert searcher in times of uncertainty
- Developing academic and information literacy skills modules for nursing students
- Feminist pedagogy in information literacy
Since it’s in Scotland there may also be a ceilidh and a tour of a whiskey distillery…
A report from the conference will follow.
