LaTeX: 4) Library Resources
LaTeX is a document preparation system that creates beautifully and consistently-formatted documents. It can be used for any document (articles, papers, letters, books) in any discipline, but is especially strong at typesetting mathematical formulae.
We have only scratched the surface with LaTeX! The Library offers resources on more advanced formatting topics such as mathematical formulae, tables, and even prepating your book for publication.

LaTeX in 24 Hours by Dilip DattaThis book presents direct and concise explanations and examples to many LaTeX syntax and structures, allowing students and researchers to quickly understand the basics that are required for writing and preparing book manuscripts, journal articles, reports, presentation slides and academic theses and dissertations for publication. Unlike much of the literature currently available on LaTeX, which takes a more technical stance, focusing on the details of the software itself, this book presents a user-focused guide that is concerned with its application to everyday tasks and scenarios. It is packed with exercises and looks at topics like formatting text, drawing and inserting tables and figures, bibliographies and indexes, equations, slides, and provides valuable explanations to error and warning messages so you can get work done with the least time and effort needed. This means LaTeX in 24 Hours can be used by students and researchers with little or no previous experience with LaTeX to gain quick and noticeable results, as well as being used as a quick reference guide for those more experienced who want to refresh their knowledge on the subject.

Practical LaTeX by George GrätzerPractical LaTeX covers the material that is needed for everyday LaTeX documents. This accessible manual is friendly, easy to read, and is designed to be as portable as LaTeX itself. A short chapter, Mission Impossible, introduces LaTeX documents and presentations. Read these 30 pages; you then should be able to compose your own work in LaTeX.nbsp; The remainder of the book delves deeper into the topics outlined in Mission Impossible while avoiding technical subjects. Chapters on presentations and illustrations are a highlight, as is the introduction of LaTeXnbsp; on an iPad. Students, faculty, and professionals in the worlds of mathematics and technology will benefit greatly from this new, practical introduction to LaTeX. George Grätzer, author of More Math into LaTeXnbsp; (now in its 4th edition) and First Steps in LaTeX, has been a LaTeXnbsp; guru for over a quarter of century. From the reviews of More Math into LaTeX: ``There are several LaTeXnbsp; guides, but this one wins hands down for the elegance of its approach and breadth of coverage.'' --Amazon.com, Best of 2000, Editors Choice ``A very helpful and useful tool for all scientists and engineers.'' --Review of Astronomical Tools ``A novice reader will be able to learn the most essential features of LaTeX sufficient to begin typesetting papers within a few hours of time...An experienced TeX user, on the other hand, will find a systematic and detailed discussion of all LaTeX features, supporting software, and many other advanced technical issues.'' --Reports on Mathematical Physics
Guide to LaTeX by Helmut Kopka; Patrick W. DalyPublished Nov 25, 2003 by Addison-Wesley Professional. Part of the Tools and Techniques for Computer Typesetting series. The series editor may be contacted atfrank.mittelbach@latex-project.org. LaTeX is the text-preparation system of choice for scientists and academics, and is especially useful for typesetting technical materials. This popular book shows you how to begin using LaTeX to create high-quality documents. The book also serves as a handy reference for all LaTeX users. In this completely revised edition, the authors cover the LaTeX2ε standard and offer more details, examples, exercises, tips, and tricks.

"This course illustrate the essential components required to create a professional quality documents with the LaTeX. LaTeX is frequently used to write thesis, reports, and scientific papers for journals, conferences and making presentations. The essential beauty of LaTeX is that it separates the task of document layout/visual representation from that of the contents of the documents. As a result you pay more attention to the actual contents and are not distracted by the visual appearance. It also automates many of the tedious processes involved in writing a professional publications such as management of references, visual layout and formatting styles. With LaTeX, you will find easy and effective management of references, figures, tables, footnotes, formatting, mathematical equations, algorithms, scientific proofs that have no match compared to the conventional document setting and word processing software."
