On Wednesday, February 20, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Southwest Region hosted the “Midday at the Oasis: Citizen Science Day 2019: Add Real Scientific Research to Your Library Programming!” webinar. A recording of the webcast and presentation slides are now available on the Midday at the Oasis page. You can also view the recording directly on YouTube at https://youtu.be/7HP-OltUbpI. In this session, Darlene Cavalier of SciStarter and her colleagues, Dan Stanton from Arizona State University and Pietro Michelucci from the Human Computation Institute, discussed how libraries can get on board with citizen science activities and plan a Stall Catchers Megathon for Citizen Science Day on April 13.
