Considering the place of practice-based evidence within Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP)

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Since its inception, the focus of evidence based library and information practice (EBLIP) has been on research evidence, although many other factors also contribute to professional decision making. This paper draws upon practice theory and examples of practice-based evidence in other professions in order to explore how practice-based evidence should be factored into the EBLIP model. Examples of how practitioners can use practice-based evidence within their decision making, and how the EBLIP model can include practice-based evidence, are also presented.
