When asked who owned the patent on his vaccine against the poliovirus,
its inventor, Jonas Salk responded:

"The people I would say. There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?"


I would like to extend an invitation, to those who are interested, to attend a training session at the Natural Sciences Library (G1, K301), Potchefstroom Campus. The purpose of the training session is to provide you with information on the use of all the library facilities available. The duration of the session is approximately 45 minutes, during which I will show you where to find scientific information in reliable academic resources (rather than simply relying on Google). The only prerequisites are that you come in groups of 3-5, and that you make an appointment beforehand. This information will be significantly beneficial to you in terms of researching your respective assignments and projects. I hope to see you all soon in the Natural Sciences Library!
