"Evidence-based practice is a paradigm that originated within healthcare but is rapidly migrating to other fields. It involves applying the results from rigorous research studies to professional practice in order to improve the quality of services to clients... (This) book is divided into three parts: the Context for Evidence-based Information Practices; Skills and Resources for Evidence-based Information Practice; and Using the Evidence Base in Practice. This later part explores each of the six domains of evidence-based librarianship identified in research, to demonstrate the application of evidence-based information practice in a practical decision-making context." -- from backcover.
