Join the library for a digital introduction to the data managment software LaTeX.
Introduction to LaTeX
This workshop is for people with no previous experience with LaTeX. Learn how to set up a document and its structure, table of contents, how to insert pictures, lists, tables, mathematical equations and cross references. We will also look at typical errors and how to avoid them.
After the class you should know:
- How to create, edit and compile a document in LaTeX
- How to use commands
- How to create a front page and a table of contents
- How understand error messages and to fix them
- How to use cross references
We use the online editor Overleaf to do the exercises. Remember to register as a user and bring your laptop to the workshop.
Check out our LaTeX page in Canvas for more information about LaTeX. Here you can find useful tips about how to use LaTeX.
The library also offers and advanced workshop in LaTeX. 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. You will learn how you can use reference management software like Zotero and EndNote in combination with Overleaf, and how you can separate different chapters into separate files and combine them into one file at the end. You can find the next LaTeX 2 workshop in our course calender.
