Alex Ozoemele Obuh, Evelyn Omoluabi Idiodi


The paper examined information provision in special libraries such as medical libraries. It provides an overview of evidence based practice as a concept for information  provision by librarians. It specifically proffers meaning to the term evidence as used in evidence based practice and to evidence based medicine from where evidence based practice evolved. The EBM model was also examined as well as issues and critique on the use of evidence in practice. The way forward in encouraging the use of evidence in practice was also discussed.

Key words: Information, Medicine, Library, Evidence-based,
