ucbthesis README file

Below is the README file for the ucbthesis class for LaTeX. It no longer contains the documentation for ucbthesis—that has been split off into a separate file, and is available in the location


It is recommended that you print out this file (9 pages) if you will be using ucbthesis to produce your thesis.


UCB Thesis Class Version 3.4, 2014/04/11

Copyright (C) 1988-2014 Daniel Gildea, BBF, Ethan Munson, Paul Vojta.

This is a class file for producing Ph.D. dissertations and masters theses conforming to the documents "Dissertation Filing Guide" and "Thesis Filing Guide" produced by the UC Berkeley Graduate Division and available on the web at http://grad.berkeley.edu/policies/ . This class is currently based on the dissertation and thesis guides, dated May 2010 -- December 2013 and February 2011 -- February 2014, respectively.

This class is a fork of the ucthesis document class (which is still being maintained for use with older theses, but which should not be used for new theses). This document class is based on the standard LaTeX memoir class (instead of the report class, which is used by ucthesis).

This package consists of the files README (this file), ucbthesis.cls, ucbthesis.tex, ucbthesis.pdf, thesis.tex, abstract.tex, chap1.tex, chap2.tex, and references.bib.


Put the file ucbthesis.cls in the latex folder of an appropriate texmf tree, generally in a directory TEXMF/tex/latex/ucbthesis (where TEXMF is the base of the texmf tree).

Put the files README, ucbthesis.tex, and ucbthesis.pdf in a similarly-named directory under the documentation directory, generally TEXMF/doc/latex/ucbthesis, and put the remaining files thesis.tex, abstract.tex, chap1.tex, chap2.tex, and references.bib in a subdirectory named example within that directory (generally TEXMF/doc/latex/ucbthesis/example).
