TABLE OF CONTENTS
RefWorks is a web-based citation management system that is available FREE to Yale students, faculty and staff to help you organize references for research. You can add references manually or import directly from ORBIS or other online databases (ATLA Religion Database, for example). RefWorks 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 a bibliography. Please set up a RefWorks account at http://www.library.yale.edu/cite/refworks.html and follow the instructions for setting up a personal account (this will allow more time to explore the system during the workshop). If you encounter problems setting up an account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Amy Limpitlaw at 432-6374.

The group, which is open to undergraduate and graduate
students, began this summer with meetings once a week. Each meeting began with
a teaching on a topic previously chosen and ended with question and discussion,
as well as prayer and fellowship. The group is fully interactive and is
designed to be a forum for each member to share his or her insight into
specific topics as we all grow in an understanding of God's Will and Word. Fellowship will take place at my home, where
we will continue to discuss meeting times and subjects for the semester ahead. Contact: Alissa Wassung,
If you have a dance background that is wonderful, but for those who do not it is not necessary to have one. The most important element that is needed is the desire to learn to worship God with your body. The entire YDS community (students, faculty, men and women) are welcomed to take part. Don’t worry if you didn’t make the previous workshops. You can come when you are able to. Please wear comfortable clothing and come with a dancing heart. Contact: Kathleen.email@example.com

October 20 & 27 (12:30PM)
With the 2008 presidential election fast approaching, and the efforts to win the White House for ’change’ in America, one is likely to hear talk about grassroots campaigning and federal election reforms, both of which require more scrutiny of voter registration, voting technologies, media coverage, campaign funding and more. What allows and supports a politician’s rise to the level of a presidential nomination? How does a candidate win an election? What is the electoral college? Is a president really the people’s choice? Please RSVP to email@example.com if you plan on attending. This dinner-discussion is free and open to the Yale community. Organized and hosted by the Office of International Students & Scholars at Yale. http://www.yale.edu/icenter/images/understanding_america_0809.pdf
