The 7th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice conference (EBLIP7) is just a few weeks away! Preparations are being made to welcome the international EBLIP community to Saskatoon, SK, Canada. There are a few of things to make note of at this time:
- The registration deadline for EBLIP7 is Tuesday, July 2, 2013. Register online at http://eblip7.library.usask.ca/#registration/index .
- EBLIP7 Lightning Strikes! Lightning Strikes are short presentations on the topic “How I’ve been inspired by EBLIP.” Speakers have 5 minutes and 20 slides. However, the slides automatically advance every 15 second! The Lightning Strikes plenary event will be held Thursday, July 18 at 9:45am. There’s nothing too serious here, though. We want your stories, your perspective, and a broad interpretation of the topic. There is still room available to present your own Lightning Strikes talk. Contact Virginia Wilson to sign up: firstname.lastname@example.org The Lightning Strikes sign up deadline is June 21.
- What’s a hootenanny? Well, the Evidence Based Hootenanny is the EBLIP7 conference banquet. We’ll be traveling by bus outside of the Saskatoon city limits to a Saskatchewan farm. There, we’ll dine in rural splendor, draw for door prizes, and enjoy a prairie sunset. Dress code is casual; enjoyment is guaranteed.
- The Centre for Evidence Based Library and Information Practice (C-EBLIP) will see its grand opening during EBLIP7. C-EBLIP is a newly established research centre based at the University Library, University of Saskatchewan. Its focus is supporting librarians as researchers and promoting evidence based library and information practice.
EBLIP7, July 15-18, 2013, University Library, University of Saskatchewan. The possibilities are endless!
