5th International Evidence Based Library & Information Practice Conference

Sweden, and the Karolinska Institutet University Library, invites you to the 5th Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference, in Stockholm, Sweden, June 29th – July 3rd 2009.

StockholmAs library practitioners and academics, we constantly face the challenge to establish the effectiveness of the services we design, the services we advocate, the services we provide.

Whether this challenge occurs within a climate of expansion, of reaffirmation or of survival we have a professional responsibility to demonstrate to our users, our managers, our colleagues and our other stakeholders that we remain in touch with the evidence base for library and information practice.

Read the entire mission statement.
