You can use your Evolution address books in LibreOffice as a data source. The following steps refer to LibreOffice version 3.3.3.
Click Edit ▸ Exchange Database… in the menu bar. This will bring up the Exchange databases dialog box.
In the right pane under Available Databases, EvolutionLocal is available as a source. Click on the small triangle to get the list of your Evolution address books.
Choose an addressbook and click Define.
In case it is not listed already, click Browse…. A file chooser dialog opens.
As Evolution stores its data in a hidden directory, press Ctrl+L to get the location bar displayed.
Go to ~/.local/share/evolution/addressbook/system/addressbook.db and click Open.
This makes the Evolution address book the default data source for LibreOffice. You can now select a field to insert into a LibreOffice document via Insert ▸ Fields ▸ Other.
