Workshop slides from the Eighth International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference (EBLIP8).

Kudos to artists at The Noun Project (thenounproject.com) for the awesome icons.

Thanks to Olivia Ward, a student in one of my classes, who agreed to me including her persona poster from IAB260 Social Technologies as an example in this presentation.

There are a whole bunch of related resources on my website at http://katedavis.info/visualising-the-evidence-at-eblip8/
