Cornerstone Science Presenter Network
Maine State Library, working with Cornerstones of Science, has created a searchable database that connects librarians with skilled scientific presenters so that librarians can offer engaging and informative science programs (without needing to be experts themselves!). This network will foster ongoing collaboration between public libraries and the scientific community, helping libraries become community science centers.
Participating scientists benefit from having libraries as a valuable new venue for sharing the impacts of their research with diverse audiences. Taking research findings out to the broader community can provide countless benefits—for the individual researchers and society at large.
You can search for a science presenter by area (each presenter designates the radius they are willing to travel), by topic area or by intended audience. You can also scroll down to the bottom of the page and look at the individual presenters. Clicking on the presenter name will give you more information.
