Bib – So­phis­ti­cated Bi­b­li­ogra­phies in

Bib is a com­plete reim­ple­men­ta­tion of the bib­li­o­graphic fa­cil­i­ties pro­vided by . For­mat­ting of the bib­li­og­ra­phy is en­tirely con­trolled by macros, and a work­ing knowl­edge of should be suf­fi­cient to de­sign new bib­li­og­ra­phy and ci­ta­tion styles. Bib uses its own data back­end pro­gram called “biber” to read and pro­cess the bib­li­o­graphic data. With biber, Bib 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, macros -> UTF-8 etc)
  • Re­mote data sources
  • Highly so­phis­ti­cated au­to­matic name and name list dis­am­bigua­tion sys­tem
  • 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 Bib, the pack­age also in­cor­po­rates core fea­tures of the fol­low­ing pack­ages: ba­bel­bib, bibtopic, bi­bunits, chap­ter­bib, cite, in­linebib, mcite and mciteplus, ml­bib, multi­bib, split­bib.

The pack­age strictly re­quires

Biber, ba­bel / poly­glos­sia, and csquotes 4.4 or later are strongly rec­om­mended.
