Conference: 6th Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference. June 27-30


Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP6) Conference

The University of Salford is proud to host the sixth Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (EBLIP6) Conference in Salford, Greater Manchester, UK, June 27th – June 30th 2011

This exciting international conference has grown out of an increasing interest in using the best available evidence in health libraries to improve library and information practice more generally.

Previous EBLIP conferences have been practical, friendly and inspirational in getting people involved in evidence-based practice. In ‘Valuing Knowledge and Expertise’, the stimulating and varied EBLIP6 programme of workshops, presentations and discussion has been specifically designed to appeal to library and information practitioners who may have previously thought that evidence based practice wasn't for them. It will provide a practical and accessible forum for librarians and information practitioners from all sectors to discover and disseminate evidence that may contribute to decision-making in professional practice.

The conference is chaired by two enthusiastic evidence based library and information professionals, Alison Brettle and Maria J Grant based within the School of Nursing & Midwifery, a forward thinking and dynamic School with a commitment to lifelong learning and evidence based practice.

The city of Manchester is an exciting place to visit, easily accessible by air, rail and road and host to a diverse cultural scene, fabulous shopping, superb restaurants and eclectic vibrant nightlife, close to stunning countryside such as the Lake District and Peak District and just over two hours from London by train.

The University is based one mile outside the city of Manchester and has a rich history stretching back to 1896. As one of the world's first industrial cities Salford has many historic achievements including the world's first free public library.
