Is there an easy way to add bibliography items to the bottom of a frame where they are referenced?

I am using Beamer and Biblatex.

I suppose biblatex's \footcite doesn't work as you want it to? – Seamus Nov 23 '10 at 16:07
@Seamus: You should convert your comment into an answer. Perhaps refer to the \footfullcite command which always prints a full citation. – lockstep Nov 26 '10 at 19:52
@lockstep OK. Now we're even – Seamus Nov 26 '10 at 20:14

BibLaTeX's \footfullcite (hat tip to lockstep) might do what you want.

Here is text\footfullcite{jones00}

Will display the full reference to jones00 from the foo.bib bibliography.

As, I compile the code you described above. The citation is not printed in the end of slide. Instead it is printing whatever is inside the \footfullcite{jones00} i-e jones00 is printed. It is not picking the reference from ff.bib (as foo.bib is in the same folder). What would be the possible cause of it? thanks – kaka Jan 15 '15 at 2:13
Have you run biber and then latex again? In any case, this seems like a separate issue from the one discussed here. – Seamus Jan 15 '15 at 19:27
\usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} solved my issue ! – kaka Jan 15 '15 at 23:57
I am having same issue as kaka even with \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} – NAASI Jul 28 '15 at 15:57
