“Evidence Based Practice & Business Librarianship” workshop

Presentations and Talks / Friday, October 22nd, 2021

Claire Walker Wiley and I led an online workshop for BRASS, the Business Reference and Services Section of RUSA. The session description is below:

As academic libraries struggle with budget and staffing issues, evidence-based practice (EBP) becomes more and more important in our efforts to increase the ROI on our work. EBP helps us make decisions and solve problems, and can be an effective way to improve day-to-day processes and services, as well as advocate for change on a larger scale. This online workshop aims to provide participants with an understanding of evidence-based practice in our field and how it can be applied specifically in the business librarian context. Participants will learn about the EBP model, examine different types of evidence, and apply EBP principles to issues in their own institutional contexts.
