Andrew Booth named as a leading UK knowledge translator

HEDS´s Andrew Booth, Reader in Evidence Based Information Practice, has been identified as a key information source for those wishing to learn about new library and information sciences (LIS) research. 

This finding is part of the Research in Librarianship – Impact Evaluation Project (RiLIES) from the LIS Research Coalition (LRC), led by Professor Hazel Hall, which surveyed 200 people on their routes to learning about new LIS Research Results. Andrew Booth was highlighted with three other individuals as occupying a key knowledge translation role. 

Andrew is a founding member of the international Evidence Based Library and Information Practice movement and co-editor of the only textbook on this topic. This recognition acknowledges his role as feature editor over more than a decade of the Using Evidence In Practice feature in Health Information & Libraries Journal, the most highly-cited health libraries journal.
