Bridwell Lunch Talks

Each semester Bridwell Library offers instructive and interesting Bridwell Lunch Talks (BLTs) designed to keep Perkins School of Theology and Religious Studies graduate students up on the latest technology, resources, and research techniques.

 Spring 2017

 “Building Credos and Theses”

Thursday, February 9th, 12:30pm—1:15pm, Bridwell Library Benefactors Room.

In this BLT, Jane Elder and David Schmersal will address the practical aspects of managing and assembling large writing projects—like those facing students in Systematics or students about to complete their MTS. Come away with strategies for thinking through sustained arguments and suggested tools to help you manage your sources.


“Preparing for Exams: Some Methods of Studying Effectively”

Thursday, February 23rd, 12:30pm—1:15pm, Bridwell Library Benefactors Room

Few words strike terror in the heart of a seminary student like “exam.” Join reference librarians Jane Elder and David Schmersal and learn memory aids and methods for organizing and distilling months of accumulated information.


Come Hungry, Leave Satisfied!

BLTs are limited to students, faculty, and staff of the Perkins School of Theology and Religious Studies Department.
