Evidence Based Library & Information Practice
4th International Conference
"Transforming the Profession"
May 6-11, 2007, Chapel Hill-Durham, North Carolina, USA

The Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference
(EBLIP4) is an exciting international event that has emerged in
response to the growing interest among all types of libraries in using
the best available evidence to improve information practice. The
conference on May 6-9, 2007 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina will be
followed by two days of continuing education. The conference provides
a forum for the presentation of high quality papers and posters as
well as examples of how EBLIP is being implemented in library and
information settings around the globe.

EBLIP4 invites submissions for contributed papers and posters
including both original research and innovative applications of EBLIP
in library and information management. Papers that deal with library
support of evidence-based practice in other fields such as health,
social work and public policy are also welcome. Full instructions to
authors may be found at
