LaTeX 2: Handling references and large documents

LaTeX is a great tool if you are writing a paper containing mathematical equations and symbols. The built-in algorithms ensures that the document will have consistent structure, high typographical quality and a professional look.

This workshop is for people who can handle the basics in LaTeX, who have been through the LaTeX introduction or is at a similar level, and who want to learn more about reference management and how to handle larger documents, like a thesis, using LaTeX.

We will look at how we can use reference management software like Zotero and EndNote in combination with Overleaf, and how we can separate different chapters into separate files and combine them into one file at the end.

Target audience: students at UiS who are writing a smaller paper like a home exam, semester paper or a work requirement.
Equipment: Your own laptop with a user in Overleaf
Participants: 15
Prior knowledge needed: Introduction to LaTeX or similar knowledge
Duration: 90 minutes + 15 minutes break
Lecturer: The University Library

  • Specific commands that are useful when writing a larger paper
