[InetBib] Citizen Science in Forschungsbibliotheken: Leitfaden der LIBER Citizen Science Working Group

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollgen,

die LIBER Citizen Science Working Group 
(https://libereurope.eu/working-group/liber-citizen-science-working-group/) hat 
den ersten Teil ihres auf vier Teile angelegten Leitfadens für Citizen Science 
in Forschungsbibliotheken veröffentlicht. Die offizielle Ankündigung in 
englischer Sprache finden Sie untenstehend.

Freundliche Grüsse

Citizen Science Skilling for Library Staff, Researchers, and the Public

Part of the four part book series: Citizen Science for Research Libraries — A

The guide is designed to be a practical toolbox to help run a citizen science 
project. It has been put together from contributions by members of the research 
library community and has been thoroughly peer-reviewed.
The skilling section focuses on the use of data and this new challenging role 
for the library — in public engagement and supporting researchers. The guide 
provides a number of step-by-step guides and concrete project examples. In the 
guide you will learn about the different roles for citizens in a project, 
project management, communication, the use of data and knowledge provided by 
citizens, questions of FAIR data, and how scientific literacy can be used for 
co-creation and education in citizen science.
Researchers have been branching out into new areas of citizen science as 
digital services have pervaded many parts of people’s lives, such as — wearable 
health tracking, using data for COVID‑19, and for climate change mitigation and 
monitoring. Research libraries are in a unique position to offer up the 
frameworks and infrastructures built by the open science movement for wider use 
by researchers in society. 
Citizen science is quite often closely linked to the creation of data. Citizen 
science can be used by the researcher to identify which data may answer their 
questions, or in increasing scientific literacy in wider society by attracting 
citizens and other stakeholders interested in the data: collecting data, 
telling the story of the data, or repurposing data.
Citizen science is a key pillar of open science. The UNESCO Recommendation on 
Open Science for the first time creates consensus on definitions and principles 
for open science. Citizen science plays a variety of roles in the overall open 
science endeavour of the democratization of knowledge.
The guide is part of a themed series of four sections based on the LIBER Open 
Science Roadmap that cover the essentials to support citizen science projects: 
skills, infrastructures, good practice, and programme development.
