Science librarians at a major research university have developed a series of LaTeX workshops utilizing online collaborative tools. These sessions allowed us to increase turnout at instruction sessions while also shifting support to patrons across their research lifecycle. By utilizing online collaborative tools to teach the document preparation system, attendees are able to launch their workflow as scholars in their field. This poster will show that the success of this shift in service enables holistic support of the research lifecycle. Learn about the development of these workshops and useful outreach lessons that emerged.
