Adapted from a chapter in the book, Exploring Environmental Science with Children and Teens by Eileen G. Harrington (ALA Publications, 2014), this presentation provides an overview of citizen science programs in academic libraries. It outlines the benefits and challenges of citizen science programs, tips for developing and implementing a citizen science project, and possible avenues of collaboration for academic libraries with citizen science projects.
This presentation, "Scientists Everywhere," was part of a three-person panel on citizen science and academic libraries at the 2015 American Library Association annual meeting. The panel was organized by the Science and Technology Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) and co-sponsored in name only by the ACRL Instruction Section and the ACRL Health Sciences Interest Group.
