Visible Ruler

First, make sure the Google Docs ruler is visible.

  • Click "View" and make sure "Show Ruler" is checked. If it isn't, click on it, and the ruler will appear beneath the menu bar.

First Line Indent & Left Indent

On the ruler, at the left margin, there is a light blue rectangle atop a triangle:

The light blue rectangle () represents the location of the First Line Indent.

The light blue triangle () represents the location of the Left Indent.

 

  • On the ruler, hover the cursor over each shape, and its function will be displayed.

Create the Hanging Indent

  • First: Select the text you want indented. You can select a single paragraph or multiple paragraphs at a time.

  • Next: On the ruler, drag the Left Indent (light blue inverted triangle ) to the right as far as you want the text to be indented. As you will notice, the First Line Indent marker (light blue rectangle ) will come along for the ride, and all your selected text will move to the right.

  • Finally: Drag the First Line Indent marker (light blue rectangle ) back to the left margin. It will move independently, and your hanging indent will be created.

 

When the cursor is within the indented area, the indent icons will now look something like this:

Non-student users are not able to print.

Can I bring my class in for a library instruction class?

Contact your liaison librarian to schedule library instruction. There are multiple formats available depending on the goals for your class and the assignment:

1. Librarian visit: a librarian will come to your class for an introduction and perhaps a quick overview of the course libguide, if you have one. This helps students know who librarians are and a very basic introduction of how the library website is organized. Location: classroom 

2. Librarian visit, with instruction: a librarian will come to your class and demonstrate different aspects of the research tools available to students, including databases and ebooks. Location: classroom

3. Class visit: the librarian will typically engage the students in some instruction and research discussion, followed by time for the students to do some research with the librarian and faculty member present. Location: library classroom
