Learn how your Library can be a Hub for Citizen Science

Posted in: #CC/Academic List, #Health Interest List, #Health Sciences List, #Public/K-12 List

Libraries can now be a place where patrons can engage in real scientific research by participating in citizen science programs.

Citizen science is a way for communities to participate in real scientific research by lending a hand to scientists in discovering groundbreaking advancements in a wide range of research projects. There are no limitations to who can participate and no science background is required. This is a great way for people to learn about the world around them and for libraries to make connections with scientists and their community.

If you would like to start a citizen science program in your library, check out the Librarian’s Guide to Citizen Science for program ideas and the article “Citizen Science: How librarians can energize their patrons to advance science” to learn about how you can engage your patrons to become a citizen scientist.
