  • Word and Acrobat: Formatting and Converting Theses and Dissertations
    Authors can easily become lost in the many guidelines encountered as they prepare their theses or dissertations, but Word can help. Following the formatting requirements of the MSU Office of Graduate Studies' "Guidelines for Preparing Dissertations and Theses," this workshop is designed for both first-time and experienced authors. Let Word handle the formatting so you can focus on the most important part: the content. This workshop also covers how to convert Word documents to PDF for easy submission. Co-sponsored by the Electronic Theses and Dissertations Unit and the Instructional Media Center.
