Date: September 21, 2006 1:04:15 PM CEST
The package below has been updated on tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your favorite mirror. Thanks again, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: opcit Author's name: Federico Garcia Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/opcit Summary description: Version 2 of opcit License type: lppl Announcement text:
This is a fully reworked and completed release of opcit, the package for footnote-style bibliography. The package keeps track of what works have already been cited, so that a further citation produces "Idem" or "op. cit." (both of which are customizable, both globally and locally). New features include a complete bst file; corrections or improvements suggested by users of the first version; cross references between entries and between footnotes; and more.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/opcit . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/cgi-bin/ctanPackageInformation.py?id=opcit (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear).

opcit – Footnote-style bibliographical references

This package addresses the problem of expressing citations in a style that is natural for humanities studies, yet does not interfere with the flow of text (as author-year styles do).

The package differs from footbib in that it uses real footnotes, potentially in the same series as any of the document’s other footnotes. Opcit also, as its name implies, avoids repetition of full citations, achieving this, to a large extent, automatically.
