The Unteachable in Pursuit of the Unreadable?

Andrew Booth

Abstract


This commentary highlights two overwhelming barriers to EBLIP - one at the consumption end and the other at the production end of the evidence chain, namely that librarians are ‘unteachable’ and systematic reviews are ‘unreadable’.


The author identifies two possible solutions to overcome these barriers; equipping librarians with self-efficacy and concentrating efforts on the investigation of real world problems through the production of Route maps for Evidence based problem Solving (“RESolve”). He proposes that these approaches will help in making librarians teachable and evidence syntheses readable.
