Research Scholars Workshops: Introduction to LaTeX Editor: Overleaf

LaTeX is a document preparation system that 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, we will introduce the free version of Overleaf and LaTeX basics. Presented by Marina Zhang, Engineering & Informatics Librarian, Lichtenberger Engineering Library.
