The need for academic libraries to seek out evidence for decision-making around collections and services has always existed, but is there a way we can do this better? Join Denise Koufogiannakis, Collections & Acquisitions Librarian at the University of Alberta Libraries, who will share insights into evidence-based library and information practice both from a philosophical as well as practical approach.  She draws on experiences from many years involvement with evidence based practice, as well as the research she conducted for her PhD in Information Studies from Aberystwyth University in Wales, UK.
