I need to work out a short note about use of LibreOffice in an academic
environment. What would some of you, who are using LibreOffice, consider
necessary to use LibreOffice in an academic setting.
I am not looking for a "wish-list", but a list of any extensions/add-ons
to LibreOffice that are available right now. Is LibreOffice sufficient
as is, or do any of you have any suggestions of add-ons that are really
needed for such a setting as a college/university/academic environment?
Thanks for any input.
So essentially, what I am getting from this discussion is that:
* LibreOffice can be successfully extended with Zotero, JabRef,
Mendely for bibliography work (it exports to LibreOffice); citations
can be handled with citing one's bibliography in the document by using
'Insert->citation'; appendices may be built by following instructions
described on this referenced post; no need for third party Math tools
as LibreOffice handles this well; working with styles can help manage
large documents effectively (i.e. page and paragraph styles); other
useful extensions: "alternative search", "compose special characters",
"linguist", "convert text to number", "notes anchor"; not to mention
language support is more than adequate.
There is a need for a few templates for academic use; a built-in
bibliographic tool and get the multimedia support for video and sound
fixed. Not to mention the on-going thing about file format compatibility
with MSO ... hard to get when you can't rely on any kind of standard
format from Microsoft.
Would there be anything else?
I am hoping to work on a marketing pamphlet expounding the values of
LibreOffice in academia.
