This collection of evidence-based practice (EBP) resources is intended for faculty, librarians, students and health care professionals interested in learning about EBP. Our goal is to make this site your preferred entry point when you wish to learn EBP, teach EBP, find current EBP research, or find key EBP resources.
We extend our appreciation to the Health Sciences Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill which currently hosts this site. We also thank North Carolina Area Health Education Centers (NC AHEC) for hosting the site until we converted to the new LibGuide format.
NC AHEC librarians and academic librarians who teach formal EBP programs formed a team to create this virtual EBP Education Center of Excellence in 2000. Many of us are still contributing to the project. Other librarians have provided valuable assistance over the last ten years. We extend our appreciation to all of our colleagues for their part in keeping this site an essential resource for everyone involved in the practice of evidence based health care.
