Featured Health Topic and Selected Books
Citizen science is research done by everyday people, anytime, anywhere, to help answer questions scientists can’t answer alone. In order to turn curiosity into impact, Citizen Science Month is recognized annually in April. Libraries can serve as a hub for scientific exploration by involving patrons in citizen science projects. From collecting and sharing data, participants can develop a deeper understanding of the scientific process and health literacy through their active involvement.
