The TU Wien library participated in the annual LIBER conference 2023 in Budapest. As a part of LIBER's Citizen Science Working Group, we’re developing guidelines for implementing Citizen Science in research libraries. This way, we’re advocating Citizen Science as one of the eight pillars in the League of European Research Universities’ (LERU) roadmap towards Open Science. In our working group meeting, we engaged in a lively discussion about our strategic directions, upcoming events and skilling for library staff. In a well-attended Pre-Conference Workshop at the Hungarian Academy of Science librarians and researchers were shown ways to develop a single point of contact for Citizen Science at their library, form sustainable partnerships and build a community of practice.
