About ESSS

The Iriss Evidence Search and Summary Service (ESSS) has been developed to help social services find and use evidence from research, practice and experience to inform practice, service improvement and continuous learning. The ESSS is led by Iriss’ Knowledge Managers, Lauren Smith and Annelies Allcock.

This blog provides a place discuss how we’re developing the service, the process of evidence based library and information services practice for its development, and how and why we do what we do. We’ll be sharing our thoughts and updates on our blog. You can also find us on Twitter.

If you have an enquiry or would like the ESSS to produce an Outline or run a workshop for you, please get in touch via our website.

You can read all our ESSS Outlines on the Iriss website.
