LaTeX is a document preparation system which uses markup tagging conventions to define the general structure of a document, to format text, and to add citations and cross-references. Instead of trouble shooting LaTeX software and packages locally in your computer, you can take advantage of the online LaTeX editor, Overleaf. In this workshop the free version of Overleaf and LaTeX basics will be introduced.

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