The LIBER working group for citizen science is producing a guide to citizen science for research libraries and is looking for participation and contributions large and small.


Citizen Science is an emerging new field and offers many opportunities for libraries. For example, it is relevant for the upcoming Horizon Europe programme, it is a way to also build new and more engaged audiences, and it’s important for establishing new links between science and society.

As such, we are looking for individuals who want to contribute to a guide on the topic of citizen science aimed at research libraries (to be published this year). Participation can be in the form of co-editing a section, contributing an article or simply providing input on the overall guide or on specific parts.

The guide will be roughly one hundred pages in length and is designed to be a practical and compact gateway publication with the purpose of assisting research libraries when it comes to setting up a Citizen Science programme.

More details here with sample contents.

Thank you in advance and on behalf of the LIBER Citizen Science Working Group.
