Hosting a working siesmograph in our library is an exciting and unique way for the library to fulfill its mission to enhance life-long learning in our community. By partnering with the Boston College Educational Seismology Project (BC-ESP) we have geophysicists, seismologists, and geologists from the Boston College Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences training library staff, patrons, home-school groups, seniors, teachers, school classes - all citizens who wish to become "citizen scientists" - how to read and analyze data collected from seismic events (earthquakes) around the world.
