Event description

Description

Your trainer for this workshop is Meirian Lovelace-Tozer from Research Platform Services.

This workshop is being held on Tuesday the 24th of July from 10am-4pm.

About this Event:

Have you ever tried to write a large document, only to find your conventional word processor can’t keep up? Are you looking for a better way to handle your references? Do you have special typesetting requirements, such as heavy use of mathematical notation, and you need it to look professional?

LaTeX is a mark-up language focused on beautiful typesetting, and handles large, complex documents with ease. It is a standard tool in scientific and technical research fields, and is well-suited to the needs of people in the humanities.
This free workshop will provide a gentle introduction to basic LaTeX usage, with a focus on thesis and article typesetting. You will leave with a LaTeX template that you can adapt for your own work.

Please bring with you:

  • a laptop with internet access and a web browser;
  • a laptop charger;
  • an Overleaf or ShareLaTeX account --- if you do not already have an account, you can create one for free by clicking ‘Register’ at www.sharelatex.com and supplying an email address and password (Note: currently, the University of Melbourne has a ShareLaTeX licence, so registering with a valid unimelb email address will give you a free account upgrade).


Please contact meirian.lovelacetozer (at) gmail.com if you have any questions, or if you would like to volunteer as a leader!
