In response to recent inquiries from graduate students, two more walk-in help sessions on Electronic Theses, Dissertations, and Reports (ETDR) have been scheduled this semester: 5-6 p.m. Wednesdays, Nov. 1 and Nov. 8, in 407 Hale Library. These come-and-go help sessions are primarily for students graduating this semester.
ETDR walk-in help sessions are designed to give fast help on formatting theses and dissertations, Microsoft Word, LaTeX, and ETDR questions. About 30 Windows computers are available in Hale 407. Attendees are welcome to bring their laptops for specific help.
If you plan to attend, it will help to accommodate more students if you create an ETDR request form ahead of time and specify a meeting time (Nov. 1 ETDR session 5-6 p.m. OR Nov. 8 ETDR session 5-6 p.m.) Otherwise, students will be asked to create the online request when they arrive.
Representatives from MathWorks will host a MATLAB seminar 3-5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24, in 1109 Engineering Hall, which is adjacent to Durland Hall (see building locator map). This event is free to all K-State faculty, staff, and students. Registration is requested although walk-ins are welcome.
