LATEX for Librarians.
Boatright, George S.
This paper presents the basics of "LATEX," a computerized typesetting program popular with mathematicians and other writers of technical papers, and compares it to conventional word processing programs. LATEX, which requires a text editor such as WordPad or NotePad--the text editor is used to produce and input file which the LATEX program processes--can be used for articles, letters, reports, and books. This paper demonstrates how to use LATEX, including commands for simple formatting, for producing references and a bibliography, and for customizing LATEX by defining new commands. Sections on troubleshooting and recommendations are also provided. LATEX can be downloaded or purchased from other commercial sources. (AEF)
