Do you run programs at your library?
Interested in receiving a FREE Citizen Science Program Kit?

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region (NNLM NER) has partnered with SciStarter (https://scistarter.org/nlm) to support Citizen Science programming in libraries

The NNLM NER is offering all types of libraries in New England a FREE Citizen Science Program Kit.

Sign up to receive a completely FREE citizen science kit for your library with this form (https://forms.gle/yP8qpcwQ2MQq3jFS8)  

(If you cannot access google forms at your institution, please email Martha Meacham (martha.meacham2@umassmed.edu) and she will ensure you get a kit.)

Citizen Science is the involvement of the public in scientific research – whether community-driven research or global investigations. Programming Kits will introduce people from all walks of life to the field of citizen science and to hundreds of opportunities to get involved. Citizen science is an amazing way to participate in research efforts, and it can often be done from a mobile device, from one’s home, or from a library. Libraries are ideal partners for citizen scientists! Participants can expect to learn how to support citizen science in their communities and ways that libraries can easily participate.

Citizen science library programs are perfect for all ages, and all types of libraries. No prior scientific knowledge is required, simply a willingness to participate!
