My calendar this summer justifies a question a frequent co-presenter posed to me recently: “What were we thinking?” A natural reaction to unexpected writing requirements for conference presentations, it triggered me to wonder why librarians seek to attend conferences with professionals in disciplines beyond their own.

Drexel University Libraries' Staff 2017 Summer Picks:
“Big Data” is slowly becoming less overwhelming as a horizon topic for university campus administrators to address.
As the dog days of summer kick into full swing, so do the new fiscal year and the Libraries’ refreshed strategic plan. This month also marks my six-month anniversary as the Drexel University Libraries’ communications manager.
The Drexel Libraries is coming down from its high of hosting an international conference in June.
The international Evidence-Based Library and Information Practice conference is not organized by an association or otherwise formal entity. Rather a group of like-minded enthusiasts interested in evidence based practices have issued, for nearly two decades, the biannual calls inviting bids to pitch a hosting organization and geographic venue. When invites crossed a few Drexel email boxes, most of us deleted them and wished the organizers well.
Drexel University Libraries hosted the 9th International Evidence Based Library & Information Practice Conference (EBLIP9), held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June 18 – June 21, 2017.
In partnership, Drexel University Online and the Libraries are pleased to announce the addition of Videos and Datasets to Sage Research Methods Online (SRMO), effective July 1.
SRMO, licensed by the Libraries since 2012, contains Sage’s highly regarded research methods series, Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences (Little Green Books) and Qualitative Research Methods (Little Blue Books) on a robust web platform.
