Montana State University LaTeX template.
The following are steps to get you going:
Start by installing a LaTeX distribution on your computer so you can compile LaTeX files. There are many "Getting Started" guides for LaTeX. This is not a guide but rather a template that conforms to the MSU thesis and dissertation standards.
Download the latest version of the template using https://bitbucket.org/markowkes/msu-latex/get/master.zip (Or you can use git to download this repository)
Unzipped the folder which includes the template and an example document.
Start by looking a "main.tex" which is the main LaTeX document. main.tex loads the template and packages, creates the front matter, and calls other *.tex files for each chapter.
You can compile the example document into a pdf using
#!bash pdflatex main.tex bibtex main pdflatex main.tex pdflatex main.tex
