Hello or Hej as they say in Sweden. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer. Can you believe we are already halfway through July? Time is going way too quickly for everything I need to get done. So before I get swept up in work again, here is a little wrap-up from EBLIP5.
I’m back from the EBLIP5 Conference (EBLIP stands for Evidence Based Library and Information Practice) and I just have to say that the Stockholm team that coordinated this conference (in conjunction with the international committee) did a fantastic job. Not only were the presentations and keynotes really interesting, the entire conference ran smoothly and the food was the best I’ve ever had at a conference. The next group to host EBLIP6 has a lot to live up to.
Click on the EBLIP5 Keynote and Presentation Summaries for some of my notes from the sessions I attended. Also, check out the EBLIP5 website at: http://eblip5.kib.ki.se/ and you can download all the abstracts and presentations.
You can also checkout EBLIP5’s Photostream on Flickr at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/eblip5/. For even more photos from the conference search the tag “EBLIP5”.
Let me know how you are using evidence based practice in your organization. I think this is a great movement in the library and information science fields and really does help us improve our practice in a methodical and logical way.
More technology updates will be coming on the Waki Librarian later. Have a great rest of your week.
