Did you know that everyone can participate in science activities and this is referred to as citizen science? Or are you already involved in a citizen science project? The LibOCS project aims to promote and disseminate citizen science ideas and collaboration between researchers from academic communities, libraries and active members of society.
We invite you to take ~7 minutes of your time and participate in a short survey. All data will be used only for research purposes in the Project, preserving the confidentiality of participants. SURVEY
KTU librarians presented Citizen Science and LibOCS at the Conference of Lithuanian Librarians’ Association
KTU Library librarians Aistė Pranckutė and Daiva Steponavičienė took part in the conference “Sustainable Library”. It was organised by the Lithuanian Librarians‘
Association and held in Jurbarkas Public Library on 29th of April, 2022. During the conference, KTU librarians gave a presentation on the LibOCS project, its goals and activities, as well as on citizen science as an example of sustainable science. Most of the conference participants were public library representatives, staff, and professionals, so the aim was not only to share the information, but also to create new connections and involve colleagues from the library sector.
