Slow Memory bibliography

Slow Memory bibliography

The Joint Bibliography is a collaborative project of the Slow Memory COST Action. Each Working Group collects relevant literature and adds them to their Zotero specific library. You can see all entries displayed below, or search for a specific Working Group. This project will be continuously updated and refined; the items in this collection will be gradually annotated.

We like to thank the Zotero Officers of the Working Groups:

  • Paweł Downarowicz (Working Group 1)
  • Vladimir Spina (Working Group 2)
  • Ewa Tartakowsky (Working Group 3) 
  • Véronique Labonte (Working Group 4)
  • Hanna Teichler (Working Group 5)
  • Hannah Wilson (Working Group 6)

For an annotated version, please have a look at our Zotero group.
