Call for Papers: International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference

The 10th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference has issued a Call for Papers. Conference theme: Using evidence in times of uncertainty.

The use of evidence is becoming more and more important as a routine part of library planning and decision making. This inclusive conference theme will encourage practitioners and researchers to think about what evidence is, how we collect it, and how we use it in these uncertain times. Pre-conference workshops covering a range of topics relating to research, evaluation and evidence-based practice will be held on 15-16 June 2019. The main conference will take place 17-19 June 2019.

The conference will provide a practical and accessible forum for librarians and information practitioners from all sectors to discover, use and disseminate evidence that may contribute to decision-making and advocacy in today's professional practice. This includes those who:
  • Are interested in the evaluation of library services or library assessment
  • Need to demonstrate the impact or value of their library service
  • Wish to build an evidence-based approach to their practice
  • Collect data about their services but don't know what to do with it
  • Wish to include the user experience in library decision making
  • Are interested in methods for evidence-based library and information practice
EBLIP conferences tend to be relatively small and particularly friendly places offering a stimulating environment for librarians across sectors to meet and share ideas. First-time conference attendees are welcome and can look forward to a lively social programme to complement the academic content.

Proposal submissions:
Submissions are invited in the form of papers (for an oral presentation - 20 minutes) or  posters. For papers and posters, abstracts of no more than 350 words should be submitted using a structured abstract form (Title, Aim, Methods, Results, Discussion/ Conclusion). 
Submissions should address an area related to the conference theme: Using evidence in times of uncertainty.
