LaTeX not only creates professional-looking documents but also allows you to tackle the more complicated parts of typesetting, such as inputting mathematics, creating tables of contents, referencing and creating bibliographies. Instead of downloading, installing and trouble–shooting LaTeX software and packages locally in your computer, you can take advantage of the online LaTeX editor called Overleaf. In this workshop, we will use Overleaf and cover TaTeX basics, bibliographic management in LaTeX and collaboration with others on a TaTeX document.

Presented by Marina Zhang, Engineering & Informatics Librarian, Lichtenberger Engineering Library
