Scholarship applicants were asked to write a short essay addressing plans to use and share the knowledge they gain through attending the conference.
“Attendance at the EBLIP Conference is incredibly valuable to me as a new library faculty member and subject librarian to the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) at the University of New Hampshire (UNH),” wrote Eugenia Liu, Health & Human Services Librarian at the University of New Hampshire and one of the ARL scholarship recipients, in her essay. “…Some projects that I see directly benefiting from my attendance at this conference include effective training of CHHS students to seek and use evidence-based information in practice settings, collaborating with external stakeholders in the state of New Hampshire to deliver information services to combat the opioid epidemic, and writing systematic reviews for libraries…”
The biennial EBLIP conference aims to bring together librarians, researchers and practitioners to discuss evidence-based practice in libraries, to present research, and to share best practices. The 2017 conference will consist of keynote and concurrent conference sessions, poster sessions, and networking opportunities as well as pre-conference continuing education workshops.
