The SFU Library thesis template is a Microsoft Word file designed to assist students in preparing theses, projects, and extended essays. The template uses custom styles to ensure that your document conforms to SFU-specific formatting standards and acceptable for Library submission.
This hands-on workshop will cover:
- the structure of the SFU Library thesis/project/extended essays
- styles: what Word styles are, the organization of the Library thesis template styles and how to apply the styles
- how to insert tables, figures/images, auto-numbered captions and notes
- how to generate and update the Table of Contents, List of Tables and List of Figures
Participants will need to bring their own laptop (either Mac or PC) with Microsoft Word installed. Note:
the template has been tested with the following versions of MS Word: Word 2011 (Mac), Word 2013 (Windows), and Word 2016/365 (Windows and Mac), so it is advisable not have anything older than these versions.
