Citizen science is the practice of non-experts contributing to or engaging in scientific research across all disciplines. This panel, comprised of scientists and librarians, will highlight various citizen science projects and discuss how libraries can become involved and support these initiatives. For academic libraries, citizen science promotes science and information literacy among students as well as connects community members with researchers to bring about new discoveries. This program is co-sponsored in name only by the ACRL Instruction Section and the ACRL Health Sciences Interest Group.
