SciStarter and the National Library of Medicine in the USA have produced a short training module on turning your library into a community hub for citizen science. The module covers citizen science as a component of library life-long learning, engaging the public, tools and strategies and identifying resources and training.

If you completed the  Foundations of Citizen Science module and earned the badge, congratulations! You are now eligible to proceed to this “Libraries as Community Hubs for Citizen Science” self-guided training module and badge! (Otherwise, complete the prerequisite training to proceed.)

For a limited time, the Medical Library Association will provide professional development credits upon completion of this module and the accompanying surveys.  

Completion of this multimedia module takes approximately one hour.
