We can all agree one of the most important parts of our mission is the preservation and study of the history, culture, philosophy and religion of our ancestors. To this end, we have the bibliotheca. Ideally, citizens may submit their own articles and conduct their own research, but to citizens who have little experience in terms of research, citations, academic reading and writing, this can of course be a challenge. Hence, I am now introducing my own project: Legio Biblotheca
Legio Bibliotheca will be a collaborative project group, with the set goal of producing one article every 1-2 months. I will oversee the work personally
We will collectively come up with topics to write about. We will be using a Kanban like technique (check it up if you are unfamiliar) where we can easily see what needs to be done, what is being done and what is finished for each article. Every article will be considered a separate project, and hence have their own milestones and deadlines. There aren’t really any other expectations than that you do your best with the time and resources you have at your disposal.
This will be a collaborative community project, akin to how you would do an Agile project where the members of the group are largely self sufficient and all agree on details. This means that I will oversee the process, but how members will do their part is largely up to them.
None, no project experience required.
