Welcome to the guide to Microsoft Office 2013!

We hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for information on Microsoft Office. We have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty.

Once you've learned the basics of Microsoft Office, stop in to the Writing, Research & Technology Zone for assistance with your projects.  Located in the Undergraduate Library on the second floor, and staffed by friendly and knowledgeable assistants, the WRT Zone provides you with the software, hardware and help you need to successfully complete your graphic, film, music or academic projects.  More information on the WRT Zone can be found on our web page.
