Abstract: Slides from a webinar series sponsored by the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) on July 31, 2020. Academic libraries can bring citizen science to the campus and to the community, whether through supporting the integration of citizen science into courses or by bridging the gaps between researchers, students, and community members. This two-part webinar series will introduce attendees to citizen science, provide tips and best practices for getting started and sustaining citizen science on campus (and virtually), and showcase resources that can be integrated into citizen science efforts. This webinar series is presented in collaboration with SciStarter, the Arizona State University Library, the UNC Greensboro Library, and the NC State University Library. Part 2 Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to: Support faculty who may interested in integrating existing citizen science projects into their classrooms but have not yet done so; work with faculty as they develop their own citizen science projects; access and utilize resources tailored to academic libraries and engage with other academic libraries doing this type of work.
