As you near the end of your thesis or dissertation, having to stop and learn long document formatting probably wasn't high on your list of priorities. Taking a few minutes to learn how to do page numbering, heading styles and image captioning, however, will save you a lot of time in the long run, though. On these pages, you'll find download-able How-To guides for Mac or PC on your left, along with links to additional thesis and dissertation information from the KU Graduate School. You are also welcome to attend a live workshop on Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Formatting, to set up an individualized deskside coaching appointment, or to just call or e-mail with your questions.
Good luck with your research!
