Presentation Janneke


Explore the Living Books about Life project using the resources below. Then go ahead and make your own mini living book: choose a topic and find 3 open access articles or books that allow sharing and reuse and that in some way relate to your topic. Post your name, your topic and your 3 references here on the wiki (underneath this assignment) and add a link to where you found them.

During the workshop I would like to hear more about your experiences with searching for and finding these resources.
