Citizen science enables people from all walks of life to engage in formal and informal research to advance fields spanning astronomy to zoology. The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Pacific Southwest Region (NNLM PSR) is hosting a webinar to provide a general overview of citizen science, highlight recent activities to support libraries as community hubs for citizen science, and showcase free resources available to librarians who want to jump in now by promoting citizen science at libraries leading up to, during, and after Citizen Science Day on April 14. You will also learn about funding opportunities that may be available for health-related programs through your NNLM regional medical library.

Registrations are encouraged!  The webinar will be recorded for later viewing; please be sure to register if you would like to receive notice when the recording is available.
