Berkeley office, or you can go to the web site (www.er-d.org) and give in just a few minutes.  ER-D is a part of the Episcopal Church, which covers most of their overhead, allowing a great percentage of your

RefWorks  - YDS Library Workshop: Are you having trouble organizing the references you accumulate in the course of researching and writing a paper or report?  Are they on computer files, note cards, napkins, and gum wrappers?  Solution:  Use RefWorks! RefWorks is a web-based citation management system that is available to Yale students, faculty and staff.  You can add references manually or import directly from ORBIS or other online databases (ATLA Religion Database, for example) available from Yale University Libraries.  It allows you to easily create in-text citations while you are writing your paper.  Once you are finished writing, it takes just moments to generate your bibliography.  Come to a 45 min. tutorial to learn more about how to get started with RefWorks.  If you plan to attend, please set up a RefWorks account.  Click on the RefWorks link on the YDS Library web page http://www.library.yale.edu/div/or the Yale University Library web page http://www.library.yale.edu/.  This will allow more time to explore the system during the workshop.  If you encounter problems setting up an account, please contact Suzanne.Estelle-Holmer@yale.edu or call Suzanne Estelle-Holmer at 432-6374.
