Vitiello, Guiseppe; Kaarsted, Thomas; Overgaard, Anne Kathrine; Ignat, Tiberius

This LIBER 2020 session examined the role libraries could play in the future. It aims for participants to get applicable takeaways by addressing:

  • Strategy
  • Services
  • Single Point of Contact
  • SDG’s – ideas how to
  • Evaluation

An important outcome is to create awareness about Citizen Science, UN SDG’s and how university and public libraries can advocate at local and national level.

Arranged and facilitated by LIBER's Citizen Science Working Group and EBLIDA experts, this session builds on the work and recommendations of e.g. SciStarter, the DEFF-project in Denmark, and the LIBER Open Science Roadmap in order for participants to achieve results in a collaborative setting. Participants will resort to tools made available by the EBLIDA Matrix to pursue autonomous Citizen Science projects, which are SDG-oriented (in particular, Goals 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15).
