So first I'd check with your thesis office, or wherever your person with
the ruler is, and ask them.  I'd also check with some advisors in the
sciences or computer sciences.  I'm sure many of those folks are already
writing their dissertations with LaTeX, so that means the work has already
been done.

schools class.  I like University of Chicago's thesis class (built on

Hope that puts you onto a good start,
