Using Evidence to Run Our Libraries

I direct your attention to a reasonably new journal: Evidence Based Library and Information Practice. The first issue of EBLIP has just been published.
EBLIP is open access, peer reviewed, and is the first journal to focus specifically on evidence based practice in the information professions. EBLIP is published by the University of Alberta Learning Services, and proudly uses the Open Journal Systems (OJS) journal management and publishing system developed by the Public Knowledge Project.
The Evidence Based Librarianship Interest Group of the Canadian Library Association governs EBLIP by establishing the journal’s guiding principles and ensuring that the journal’s editorial board is in place on an annual basis. We have great support from our international Editorial Advisory and Evidence Summaries Teams too.
In addition to the valuable Evidence Summaries section, this issue also contains research articles, papers presented at the 3rd EBL Conference in Australia, and the EBL Conference abstracts.”

Congratulations to the editorial team on starting this great initiative! There are about 20 articles in this first issue that all address the real issue of proving that something works.
