Abstract

Since its inception, the focus of evidence based library and information practice (EBLIP) has been on research evidence, although many other factors also contribute to professional decision making. This paper explores how practice-based evidence should be factored into the EBLIP model and how practitioners can include this type of evidence in their decision making.
