Citizen science is happening all around you! 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.
On February 24th, 2020, NNLM will be hosting a class called National Library of Medicine Resources for Citizen Scientists; participants will learn how to support citizen science in their communities and ways that libraries can participate. Participants will learn about citizen science library program models, free National Library of Medicine resources to incorporate into citizen science library programs, and sources of funding to explore for buying testing kits or supporting community research efforts. Citizen science library programs are perfect for all ages, and all types of libraries.
