About the workshop

The SFU Library thesis template is a Microsoft Word file designed to assist students in preparing theses, projects, and extended essay(s) in accordance with formatting standards and requirements for submission to the Library.

In this in-person workshop, we will walk you through the overall structure of your thesis and demonstrate the functionality of the thesis template. You will learn how to:

  • download the thesis template (a Microsoft Word file) and set up some defaults
  • format your text using styles (ie. block quotes, lists, references, etc.)
  • update the Table of Contents, List of Tables and List of Figures
  • bring in text from other documents

If we have time, we will show you how to:

  • insert figures/images and tables and generate auto-numbered captions
  • update the List of Figures and Tables
  • other tips and tricks

Note: This is part of the Thesis Writing Retreat, but non-Thesis Writing Retreat participants are welcome to register and join.
