About this guide

Welcome, Rutgers-Merck Summer Bioethics Institute students!

      This guide is designed to help you gather the information you need to prepare your group presentations for Saturday's gala banquet.  It summarizes much of what we've talked about in class.  There are also some tips that might help with the preparation of your presentations.

      Best wishes for your success! 



      Just a reminder -- if you'll be attending a college nearby, please feel free to visit Dana Library to use the indexes and databases as well as the electronic journals.  Depending on where you live and where you're enrolled as a student, you may also be able to borrow books from Dana's collection.
