Webinar: “Citizen Science in Libraries” on Wednesday, April 4

Posted by on April 2nd, 2018 Posted in: Announcements, Citizen Science, Communications Tools, Education & Training, Events, Non-NLM Resources


Are you interested in citizen science? Are you looking for new ways to engage with your community members, and would you like to encourage science discovery with more of your users? If you answered yes to any of the above, then check out this exciting webinar hosted by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Pacific Southwest Region (NNLM PSR), Citizen Science in Libraries: Fostering Community Connections on Citizen Science Day and Beyond, on Wednesday, April 4. The featured presenter is Darlene Cavalier, professor of practice at Arizona State University and the founder of SciStarter, a citizen science database and platform. She describes several citizen science projects in public libraries in Arizona that are part of an IMLS grant, and she will share resources and information to spark ideas for your library. You will also learn about funding opportunities that may be available for health-related programs and citizen science projects through your NNLM regional medical library.

Citizen science enables people from all walks of life to engage in formal and informal research to advance fields spanning astronomy to zoology. This webinar provides a general overview of citizen science, highlights recent activities to support libraries as community hubs for citizen science, and showcases free resources available to librarians who want to jump in now by promoting citizen science at libraries leading up to, during, and after Citizen Science Day on April 14.
