Advanced LaTeX for ETDs and More

Advanced LaTeX for ETDs and More

Looking for a different platform besides Word or Google for your thesis or dissertation? Or do you want to go beyond the basics in LaTeX? Come learn more about working with LaTeX in Overleaf for larger projects!

In the workshop we’ll cover:

  • Setup and structure of large projects with multiple .tex files
  • Using citation managers with LaTeX
  • Creating your own commands
  • Options for collaboration

Experience with LaTeX or other coding experience is highly recommended for this workshop. Learners should have a citation manager (EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero, etc.) installed prior to the workshop with some references added. Although we will be using Overleaf, you are welcome to use your preferred LaTeX distribution.

This session will be offered live via Zoom and will be recorded and sent out afterwards to all who register. While we encourage attendance during the live virtual session so that you can interact with the instructor and ask questions, you're welcome to sign up for the session to receive the recording of it afterwards even if you can't attend it live. 

If you are an individual with a disability and desire an accommodation, please email lisab5@vt.edu at least 10 business days prior to the event.
