'Merry work: libraries and citizen science' by Tiberius Ignat, Paul Ayris, Ignasi Labastida i Juan, Susan Reilly, Bertil Dorch, Thomas Kaarsted, Anne Kathrine Overgaard

"Citizen science effectively relocates scientific activities into a wider community and offers grounds for more interaction between science and society. Research communities and public libraries are already well placed to support citizen science. The effectiveness of this support, however, depends on the extent to which such communities feel empowered to successfully engage in citizen science activities. A better understanding of the benefits, and the resources and skills needed, would encourage libraries to engage with citizen science more fully."
