Overleaf/LaTeX for Tables and Figures

Overleaf/LaTeX for Tables and Figures

LaTeX is a free document preparation system, used to create journal articles, books, dissertations, etc. Overleaf is a collaborative cloud-based platform for the creation and editing of LaTeX documents. UVA has a site license to Overleaf to provide greater and easier access. In this workshop we will develop an example of a document in Overleaf, illustrate some basic functionality of LaTeX, and focus on how to control the placement and appearance of figures and tables within LaTeX. This workshop assumes you have an Overleaf account (UVA has a site license to Overleaf), and have some basic familiarity with LaTeX and Overleaf. Before the workshop you should review the Overleaf resources Learn LaTeX in 30 minutes if you are new to LaTeX. We won't review these ideas in the workshop, but if you have questions about the material, or need help getting started with Overleaf, reach out to Ricky at ricky@virginia.edu before the scheduled workshop.

Our policy is that we do not record live workshops in order to encourage robust Q&A. However, you can always find the full workshop materials for all of our workshops at: https://library.virginia.edu/data/training/past-workshops which allows you to work through the material at your own pace. We also encourage you to reach out to the instructor at any time for a one-on-one consult, and for specific or general questions about any of the topics we cover.
