Abstract: Slides from a webinar series sponsored by the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) on July 24, 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 1 Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to: describe citizen science and give examples of its application in higher education; support faculty (and their students) who have already integrated citizen science projects into their curricula; support virtual citizen science activities in the classroom; access citizen science projects and resources from SciStarter.
