Join the library for an advanced class in the data managment software LaTeX.
Handling references and large documents
This workshop is for people who can handle the basics in LaTeX, 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 and staff at UiS Equipment: Your own laptop with a user in Overleaf Prior knowledge needed: Introduction to LaTeX or similar knowledge Participants: max 10 Registration: No registration required Language: English Where: The Data Lab, KE A-259, Ullandhaug library
After the class you should know:
- Specific commands that are useful when writing a larger paper
- How to create a folder structure that allows you to keep an overview of the different elements of your paper
- How to use citations in LaTeX and how to use LaTeX in combination with EndNote or Zotero
We use the online editor Overleaf to do the exercises. Remember to register as a user and bring your laptop to the workshop.
The class will take place in the Data Lab, KE A-259, in the library.
