This collection consists of a number of resources regarding research data management in citizen science. The resources arises from a project elucidating the role of libraries in citizen science, where one of the tasks was to describe if FAIR data can play a role for citizen science. Three videos were produced describing citizen science and how FAIR data were produced in a citizen science project.

Further, a scientific article consisting of a scoping review and case study elucidates the research data mangement challenges of citizen science projects. These challenges are described in the context of the FAIR principles, implying how integrating FAIR data in the project can accomodate the challenges. Further, recommendations for how research libraries can support citizen science projects with research data managment are provided. 

The identified challenges and support possibilities are condensed in a short guide that highlights focus areas for research data mangement support by research libraries to citizen science projects. Although aimed at research librarians, the recommendations are useful for any citizen science project manager.
