# UBC Thesis Class

## Installation

You can either put the sources in your texmf tree or just place the appropriate class in your working directory for your project. To facilitate this, the directory texmf-local contains the directories that should be linked to:

<your texmf-local directory>/tex/latex/


For example, on my Mac with texlive I link the texmf-local/ubcthesis_new directory to:

/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/ubcthesis_new


## Inspiration

The following LaTeX packages contain ideas or variants on style relevant to this work.

• KOMA: An alternative set of documentclasses with much more customizable layout. I am exploring this in the koma directory.
• classicthesis: A Bringhurst inspired style for layout base on the KOMA scripts. This has heavily influenced my design.
• arsclassica: A different take on classicthesis.
• memoir: A different approach to customizable style based on the standard LaTeX classes, but bundling many useful packages together. This is a good place to look, but I prefer the KOMA approach and classicthesis style, so I have abandoned my attempts at using this.
• MemoirChapStyles: Some chapter styles using the memoirs package.

The following packages might be of use for dealing with font choice:

• mathdesign: Some customized fonts to pair with utopia, garamond, and bitstream charter.
