LaTeX at CERN (June 2017)
Latest version of TeXLive available on an experimental basis (TeXlive 2017)
In June 2017 the TeX Collection 2017 was released by the
international TeX Usergroup TUG. It comprises TeXLive, proTeXt,
MacTeX, and a CTAN snapshot. Since there is no formal active LaTeX support at CERN,
this version, TeX Live 2017, has been
made available at CERN on an as-is basis. The
files in the distribution are regularly updated on the CTAN
repository sites and these changes are propagated once a month or so onto the CERN repositories.

the corresponding LaTeX command to generate them.
- The LaTeX
Companion (Second edition, 2004)
An up-to-date description of over 200 packages using nearly 1,000
fully tested examples in over 1100 pages. It shows how LaTeX can be
extended to typeset all types of publications--from memos to
encyclopedias, from complex scientific papers to poetry in most of the
world's languages (available from Amazon (DE)).
The LaTeX Graphics Companion (Second Edition, 2007)
Complement to the LaTeX Companion in the area of
graphics. This revised reference describes techniques and tricks
needed to illustrate LaTeX documents. Presenting a number of packages
that extend or modify LaTeX's basic illustration features, it explains
how to produce the most effective graphics and provides solutions to
the most commonly encountered problems (available from Amazon (DE)).
LaTeX Web Companion
A book by Michel Goossens and Sebastain Rahtz published in
1999. It describes the relation of LaTeX to Web languages, such as
HTML and XML drawing on an example from HEP (available from Amazon (DE)).
