A Day of Discussion with Jonathan Eldredge
“Library science cannot be conceived of as a remote, ivory tower endeavor. Librarians operate their libraries in the real world context of providing services and collections through managing budgets and other resources. Thus, EBL constitutes an applied rather than theoretical science. EBL merges scientific research with the pressing need to solve practical problems. And, like the scientific method, EBL provides a framework for self-correction as new information becomes available that suggests new directions or methods.” Jonathan Eldredge, "Evidence-based Librarianship: an Overview," Bulletin of the Medical Library Association, 88.4 (2000): 290.
