Tech Tip Tuesday: Templates Save Time

Welcome to another installment of #techtip Tuesday!

Regardless of the writing assignment, you may notice as you move through your college career that many activities require the same formatting elements. In APA or MLA Style, as an example, most of your documents will require the same content and formatting in the document headers, and your References or Works Cited page will always be formatted with hanging indents. You can save yourself some time by either creating your own template where most of this formatting is always done for you, before you begin writing, or you can use pre-designed templates available on the web, within your software, or through various resources. Check out our list of tutorials from the web to help you use templates:

Custom templates in Google Docs

Save a Word doc as a template

If you're looking for a more robust experience, you might also find the predesigned templates in Academic Writer and NoodleTools helpful!
