New From Overleaf: A Collection of LibGuides
To further strengthen Overleaf’s partnership with academic libraries, they have published a collection of guides on the LibGuides platform which are designed to help librarians with:
- informing students and faculty about all of the features of Overleaf;
- curating and disseminating links to a wide range of helpful LaTeX resources.
If you’re not a librarian, it’s possible that you may not be aware of the LibGuides platform: it is widely used to collect, curate and share information of relevance and interest to all sections and members of a librarian’s user community—via an easy-to-use website.
They are delighted to launch this service, starting with three Overleaf LibGuides:
- Librarian’s Guide to Overleaf;
- Overleaf for LaTex Theses & Dissertations;
- Overleaf for Scholarly Writing & Publication.
Each guide contains links to numerous resources, including:
- video tutorials on how to use Overleaf;
- in-depth blog articles and tutorials on LaTeX;
- quick hints and short help articles;
- Overleaf LaTeX templates for journal articles, books, theses, etc.;
- overview content on using LaTeX for theses and dissertations.
All of the information and content on the LibGuide platform is shareable via the LibGuide community and can be added to your local library guide and customized with links to your Overleaf institutional portal and your University’s LaTeX thesis template.
They warmly invite the librarian community to explore these Overleaf LibGuides and to also let them know if they should create additional guides to help inform students and faculty about the power of Overleaf and LaTeX. Contact Overleaf via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our contact web form if you have any questions or if you’d like to suggest additional guides on other topics related to Overleaf.
