LaTeX is a document typesetting system that can produce attractive articles, books, and slides. It is especially useful when writing documents with a lot of mathematical notation.

The Notre Dame Graduate School provides a dissertation template and style file for those using LaTeX.

I'm Completely New!

The second thing you need to do is to try a LaTeX tutorial. There are many on the web. There is also a handout used for the Introduction to LaTeX workshops offered at Notre Dame.

If you would like a hands-on introduction, Introduction to LaTeX workshops are offered a few times each year in the Hesburgh Libraries' Center for Digital Scholarship.

A nice point of trivia is that Notre Dame hosted the worldwide 2009 TeX Users Group meeting.

The Center for Digital Scholarship offers workshops for those who are completely new to LaTeX. They start at the very beginning and go through adding text, special symbols of LaTeX, and basic formatting. The goal is to learn enough so that participants can find and make sense of tutorials and examples found online.

The workshops are a great way to get started, especially if you prefer to learn by doing.

The handout used in the workshop is also available. Feel free to use it as a reference or to work through it on your own.
