Citizen Science : Home

Building community engagement with university research.


Citizen Science is an endeavor in which scientific knowledge is advanced through the collaboration of professional researchers with engaged members of the public. Citizen scientists lend their passion and skill to observe phenomena, record data, and assist, actively, with researchers in the field.

This guide has been created to bring together selected resources that speak to citizen science as a topic of scholarship and community of practice as well as to tangible opportunities in which our public and research staff might engage.

While opportunities abound, it has been my intent (primarily) to identify and to link to programs, projects, and educational tools (library collections and services) from within our "neighborhood"--our institution, Wisconsin and the Midwest.
