Glasgow, Scotland will host EBLIP10 in 2019. The tenth in a successful series of international conferences, EBLIP10 will promote evidence-based approaches to library and information practice.

Dr Rebekah Willson and Dr Diane Pennington, both lecturers in information science at University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland coordinated the Glasgow entry into the competitive selection process. Professor Alison Brettle, University of Salford, UK will Chair the International Programme Committee.

Criteria for selection included the location, facilities, regional and national support, the strength of the organizing team and unique selling points.

The biennial EBLIP Conference promotes the use of best available evidence to improve library and information practices in all types of libraries. It aims to bring together practitioners, researchers, and students involved in critical and reflective information practice to think through new ways to address contemporary issues of evidence based practice in less isolated, more collaborative, ways. The first EBL(IP) Conference took place in Sheffield, UK in 2001. Subsequent conferences have been hosted in Edmonton (Canada, 2003), Brisbane (Australia, 2005 and 2015), Chapel Hill (USA, 2007), Stockholm (Sweden, 2009), Salford (UK, 2011), Saskatoon (Canada, 2013), and Philadelphia (USA, 2017).

“The University of Strathclyde is excited to host the Tenth International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference,” said Rebekah Willson, co-chair of the Local Organising Committee. “Scotland has a vibrant library community and we are looking forward to welcoming practitioners and researchers from around the world to the EBLIP10 conference, for a chance to make connections, as well as experience all Glasgow has to offer.”
