It’s hard to believe that it’s been well over a year since EBLIP6 in Salford, but EBLIP7 is fast approaching. The conference theme is “The Possibilities are Endless…” and it is a theme which we hope will evoke not only the wide open spaces of Saskatchewan on the Canadian prairies, but also the notion that in evidence based library and information practice, the possibilities are indeed endless when it comes to exploring and implementing the best available evidence into a practice situation. As well, the possibilities are endless when it comes to delving into practice-based research in order to inform and enable best practices. These are exciting times in EBLIP, and you are invited to the gathering of the EBLIP community and to join in the ever-changing and always interesting conversations.


In the weeks ahead, you will be invited to submit abstracts for conference sessions which will be peer reviewed by the International Program Committee. A call for posters will also be initiated. There will be details of continuing education programs which will be
held on Monday, July 15, 2013. Conference registration will open in the New Year.


Very soon, a functional EBLIP7 website will be unveiled and the opening and closing keynote speakers will be announced. As well, information about the opening reception, conference banquet, conference accommodations, and other pertinent details will be posted to the website.
