Mendeley Collection of literature on Deep-Sea Mining

[From the INDEEP mailing list]

With the generous help of undergraduate biology student Daniëlle de Jonge from the University of Groningen, Netherlands, the DOSI and INDEEP community now have a comprehensive library containing over 200 papers on a variety of aspects of deep-sea mining.  We decided to use Mendeley as a platform for this library as it is simple to access and a good tool for future collaboration.

Please let me know if any papers are missing from this library and I will add them. For those of you who are not yet familiar with Mendeley Reference Manager tool, Daniëlle has provided a brief manual below to get you started.

Kind regards
