Evidence based practice

A book chapter available online via Queensland University of Technology's eprint server is:
Partridge, H., Edwards, S. L., & Thorpe, C. E. (2010) "Evidence-based practice : information professionals' experience of information literacy in the workplace." In: Lloyd, A. & Talja, S. (Eds.) Practising Information Literacy : Bringing Theories of Learning, Practice and Information Literacy Together. Centre for Information Studies, Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, N.S.W., pp. 273-298.
This reports on an interesting phenomenographic investigation into librarians' conceptions of evidence based practice.The authors propose that "it is through evidence-based practice that information literacy within a workplace setting finds expression" (p294) since there are different information practices associated with the five qualitatively different experiences of evidence-based practice.
