Enough from us - let’s allow our customers talk on our behalf:
“It’s so easy to get the students up and running. They simply have to get an account, I can share my project with them, and we are up and running. Before this, I’d have had to give them a long tutorial about compiler setup and the package repository. With Overleaf, all that is already taken care of.” - Christopher Collins, Associate Professor, and Canada Research Chair in Linguistic Information Visualization
“It’s been a win for everyone – the library gets the insight and information it needs, the students and faculty get a great tool for writing and collaborating, and the University gets an easy submission portal for its online repository. We couldn’t be happier with Overleaf.” - Andrew Creamer, Librarian at Brown University
