2020 Summer Reading Programming with SciStarter and NNLM

Posted by on June 17th, 2020 Posted in: All of Us, Citizen Science, Public Libraries


The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM), a program of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), and the All of Us Research Program has expanded its partnership with SciStarter and the School for the Future of Innovation in Society at Arizona State University, and the Collaborative Summer Library Program to bring health programming to your library for Summer Reading! Exploring Citizen Science is a great way to reach library patrons virtually.

The organizations worked collaboratively to promote Citizen Science Month (April 2020) in libraries, to increase awareness of citizen science in communities across the nation, and help you explore the impact of the environment on your health. Through citizen science and crowdsourcing, NNLM can help you engage in initiatives addressing societal needs and accelerating biomedical science, technology, and innovation. Participation in the research process also helps create transparency and build trust between NNLM and the communities that we serve.

We have limited opportunities connecting to summer reading, but filling out the sign-up form also signals your willingness for future engagement in the coming months.
