Two walk-in help seminars are scheduled September-October for graduate students who want faster help on thesis/dissertation formatting, Microsoft Word, and LaTeX. Electronic Theses, Dissertations, and Reports (ETDR) sessions are scheduled:
- Wednesday, Sept. 13 — 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
- Wednesday, Oct. 18 — 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
Both sessions are in 407 Hale Library. Hale 407 has Windows computers, and attendees are welcome to bring their own Mac and Windows laptops.
- How to use K-State’s ETDR writing templates (Word and LaTeX)
- Timesavers, tools, and solutions in Microsoft Word
- Review your ETDR to meet Graduate School requirements
- Prior publication and copyright resources
- Automated features (Table of Contents, figure/table captions, and more)
Each session starts with an overview of ETDR resources and concludes with a question/answer period. Leave as soon as your questions are answered, or stay and learn more about ETDR resources and using Word efficiently.
Distance students or others who cannot attend may request an ETDR meeting via Zoom webconference, in person, or by phone. Class presentations are also available in person or via Zoom. Use the ETDR request form (K-State eID/password required) to specify what help you need and to schedule meeting times. Response time is 24-48 hours.
