 LaTeX Short Course Added for August

By Claudia Lynch, Benchmarks Online Editor

An "Introduction to LaTeX" class has been added to the ACS Short Course lineup this summer. It will be held Wednesday, August 9 from 1-4 p.m. in the SLIS Computer Classroom (ISB 203). The course is described as follows:

This is an introductory course that will expose the student to the basics of the LaTeX document processing language. Emphasis will be placed on producing a sample typeset chapter based on the UNT Graduate School style file. This course is a starting point for those who want to use LaTeX for theses, dissertations, and for preparing research papers for classes or conferences. No prior programming knowledge is required.

LaTeX is a language! Be prepared to think in programming terms but do not be intimidated; it is very rewarding. Bring an empty 3.5" diskette so you can save your in-class work. A bootable Linux CD distribution called Knoppix will be provided as the teaching platform.
