Footnote Citations with Biblatex
Footnote Citations with Biblatex
This example shows how to create citations in footnotes using biblatex. Biblatex automatically formats references and citations, much like BibTeX, but biblatex is more robust and more powerful. You can (almost certainly) use your existing .bib databases with biblatex, it comes with a wide variety of styles built in, and it's much easier to write your own custom styles. In this example, we use the verbose-ibid style to generate footnotes with automatic “ibid.” abbreviations. For a full list of styles, see the user guide in the biblatex manual.
