a Great Outline? Please donate it to WIL!
WIL has a bank of outlines prepared by Chicago-Kent students for first-year
and upperclass classes. But in order to keep our bank current, we
need outlines donated each semester. If you've created great outlines
for any of your classes, please consider donating them to WIL. These
outlines are then available to dues-paying WIL members for future semesters.
To help save some trees, outlines will be accepted in electronic form only.
Please just e-mail WIL at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your outlines, telling us the class, the professor, the textbook(s)
used in class, the semester & year, your name, and the program in which
the outline is written (e.g. WordPerfect 7.0, Word 7). If you have
any questions about our outline bank, please
click here or e-mail Sita Balthazar-Thomas, our Secretary, at email@example.com.
If you would like to request a WIL outline, you must be a dues-paying
member. You can send your request to Sita (e-mail above). If
we receive your request by Friday, February 5th you are guarnteed delivery
of the outlines by Monday, Februrary 22nd. Any requests made after
2/5 will be processed as time allows.
