BibLaTeX – Sophisticated Bibliographies in LaTeX
BibLaTeX is a complete reimplementation of the bibliographic
facilities provided by LaTeX.
Formatting of the bibliography is entirely controlled by
LaTeX macros, and a working knowledge of LaTeX should be
sufficient to design new bibliography and citation styles.
BibLaTeX uses its own data backend program called
to read and process the bibliographic data.
BibLaTeX has many features rivalling or surpassing
other bibliography systems. To mention a few:
Full Unicode support
Highly customisable sorting using the
Unicode Collation Algorithm + CLDR tailoring
Highly customisable bibliography labels
Complex macro-based on-the-fly data modification
without changing your data sources
A tool mode for transforming bibliographic data sources
Multiple bibliographies and lists of bibliographic information
in the same document with different sorting
Highly customisable data source inheritance rules
Polyglossia and babel suppport for automatic language
switching for bibliographic entries and citations
Automatic bibliography data recoding
(UTF-8 -> latin1, LaTeX macros -> UTF-8 etc)
Remote data sources
Highly sophisticated automatic name and name list
Highly customisable data model so users can define
their own bibliographic data types
Validation of bibliographic data against a data model
Subdivided and/or filtered bibligraphies,
bibliographies per chapter, section etc.
Apart from the features unique to BibLaTeX,
the package also incorporates core features
of the following packages:
The package strictly requires
csquotes 4.4 or later
are strongly recommended.
