EBLIP9 in 2017: Call for EOIs

9th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference in 2017: Call for Expressions of Interest

The International Advisory Committee (IAC) for the International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP) Conference Series warmly invites expressions of interest from individuals, organizations, and associations working in the public sector (e.g. academic, school, local and regional authorities, national associations) to host the 9th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference in 2017.

The EBLIP Conference is a biennial conference designed to promote the use of best available evidence to improve library and information practice in libraries of all types.

It aims to bring together practitioners, researchers and students involved in critical and reflective information practice to think through new ways to address contemporary issues of evidence based practice in less isolated, more collaborative, ways.

The first EBL(IP) Conference took place in Sheffield, UK in 2001. The success of this conference led to further successful conferences in Edmonton (Canada, 2003), Brisbane (Australia, 2005), Chapel Hill (USA, 2007), Stockholm (Sweden, 2009), Salford (UK, 2011), Saskatoon (Canada, 2013), and Brisbane (Australia, 2015).

Candidates wishing to host the Conference must apply to Helen Partridge, helen.partridge@usq.edu.au by Monday, November 30, 2015, using the EBLIP9 Expression_of_Interest_template.

Information on the requirements for hosting EBLIPL9 are available in the EBLIP9 Supporting Details booklet.

The EBLIP International Advisory Committee (IAC) comprising representatives from the previous hosts will be responsible for reviewing Expressions of Interests received, and selecting the venue for the EBLIP9 conference.
