This hands-on workshop uses the Overleaf editor to demonstrate the basics of LaTeX. LaTeX is a powerful typesetting language often used for writing theses, dissertations, peer-reviewed journal articles, and scientific documents. Registration is required through Learn (at) ISU. Let us know if you need accommodation.

Unlike a traditional word processor, files are written in a markup language and then run through LaTeX to apply the formatting. This allows authors to focus on their document's content, not its appearance. Switch from single- to double-column formatting by changing a toggle. Build your reference section automatically using the citation feature. Typeset beautiful mathematical equations. This hands-on workshop uses the Overleaf editor to demonstrate the basics of LaTeX. Attendees will work through examples, experiment with common features, and take away a list of additional resources that can be used after the workshop to explore further.
