University Libraries Section (ULS): About Our Discussion Groups


The Evidence-Based Practices Discussion Group offers a forum for librarians and other information professionals to discuss any of the following as a community:

  • Research-based decision-making in professional practice
  • Practical decisions that have been based on research studies
  • How to establish evidence-based practices based on a very thorough search of the literature and a very thorough selection and analysis of the retrieved literature


The Evidence-Based Practices Discussion Group usually has four members. See current discussion group roster.
