CTAN update: BibArts

Date: October 3, 2022 5:59:18 PM CEST
Timo Baumann submitted an update to the BibArts package. Version number: 2.5 License type: gpl Summary description: “Arts”-style bibliographical information Announcement text:
BibArts is a package to administer bibliographical references in footnotes, and for creating a bibliography from these references simultaneously; it requires a program, for which source and Windows executable are provided. === bibarts.sty provides commands for quotation, register keywords, abbreviations, and especially for a formatted citation of literature, journals (periodicals), published documents, and unpublished archive documents. You have to say \usepackage{bibarts} in your [file].tex; then, you can use \vli{FirstName}{LastName}{The \ktit{Title} etc.} for full references to literature, and \kli{LastName}{Title} for shortened references. \printvli will print your List of Literature. === Changes from BibArts version 2.4 (2022[a]) to version 2.5 (now, 2022b): (1) You may now put curly brackets around the \ktit{shortened title}, e.g.: \vli {K.} {Mayer} {The \textbf {\ktit{Book}}, Frankfurt/M.}. Older versions, despite \announcektit, did not print "(cited as ...)" in that case. Now, this error has been fixed, and \vli prints correctly: K. Mayer: The Book, Frankfurt/M. (cited as Mayer: Book [L]). 2) bibarts.sty now searches for a full stop at the end of the last argument of \vli commands. So, you may set \notannouncektit, and you will get: K. Mayer: The Book, Frankfurt/M. (BibArts 2.5 automatically prints "." instead of ".." at the end.) (3) BibArts now supports the name-year system. In this feature, the last argument of a shortened reference \kli consists of the year of publication (instead of a few words from the full title). In this new system, you also use \ktit in the full reference \vli, but in the optional *{argument} as: \footnote{\vli {J.} {Smith} *{\onlyvoll{\ktit{2022}}} {An Alternative}.} ... \footnote{\kli {Smith} {2022}.} %% <= automatically prints IBIDEM. The \ktit in the *{argument} of the full reference \vli has to be masked by \onlyvoll; only then, BibArts will print IBIDEM, if \kli{Smith}{2022} is in the following footnote. Instead of especially *{\onlyvoll{\ktit{2022}}}, you may use *{\starktit{2022}} as a shorter synonym; also see ba-short.pdf. After a start of the BibArts program bibsort, and a second start of LaTeX, \printvli prints the List of Literature from the given name-year example as: Smith, J. 2022: An Alternative. (4) Anyway, \ktit now is no more necessarily in the last argument of a \vli command. The new bibsort tells you whether you have always chosen the same argument (where "arg 3" means the optional *{argument}, and "arg 4" the last argument). To get the new features, bibsort, and bibarts.sty, both need to be updated to version 2.5. bibsort is sometimes referred to as bibarts-bin. (5) bibsort now knows further eleven UTF-8 characters (according to the changes in utf8enc.dfu from version 2021/06/21 v1.2n to 2022/06/07 v1.3c). === Published under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

BibArts – “Arts”-style bibliographical information

BibArts is a package to assist in making bibliographical features common in the arts and the humanities (history, political science, philosophy, etc.).

bibarts.sty provides commands for quotations, abbreviations, and especially for a formatted citation of literature, journals (periodicals), edited sources, and archive sources. In difference to earlier versions, BibArts 2.x helps to use slanted fonts (italics) and is able to set ibidem automatically in footnotes. It will also copy all citation information, abbreviations, and register key words into lists for an automatically generated appendix. These lists may refer to page and footnote numbers. BibArts has nothing to do with . The lists are created by bibsort (see below).

BibArts requires the program bibsort, for which the sources and a Windows executable are provided. This program creates the bibliography without using MakeIndex or . Its source is not written with any specific operating system in mind. A summary of contents is in English; the full documentation is in German.
