Evidence based librarianship is a way of practicing librarianship based on the research conducted in library and information science. It is a way of systematizing the process of decision making by implementing research results in order to provide better services in the libraries. Evidence Based Medicine aims at improving the patient care by looking at the evidence related to health science. Similarly evidence based health science librarianship aims at improving the user services at health science libraries by looking at the evidence in various print and online resources. Number of research articles including systematic review articles available related to practices in libraries including health science libraries is less compared to other fields like medicine. Encouragement to the health science librarians to conduct research and publish articles help in enhancing research articles in the field of health science libraries and thus leads to the improvement of health science library services and practices.
