li­brar­ian – Tools to cre­ate bib­li­ogra­phies in TeX

The pack­age ex­tracts in­for­ma­tion in bib files, makes it avail­able in the cur­rent doc­u­ment, and sorts lists of en­tries ac­cord­ing to that in­for­ma­tion and the user’s spec­i­fi­ca­tions. Ci­ta­tion and bib­li­og­ra­phy styles can then be writ­ten di­rectly in TeX, with­out any use of BibTeX. Creat­ing ref­er­ences thus de­pends en­tirely on the user's skill in TeX.

The pack­age works with all for­mats that use plain TeX’s ba­sic syn­tac­tic sugar; the dis­tri­bu­tion in­cludes a third-party file for ConTeXt and a style file for LaTeX.

As an ex­am­ple of use, an Author (Year) style is given in a sep­a­rate file and ex­plained in the doc­u­men­ta­tion.
