# \ref Chapter Name in LaTeX [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate:
Get the title instead of number of a referenced chapter?

Is it possible to use \ref{chap:conclusion} to refer to the actual name of the chapter instead of the chapter counter in LaTeX? So that I can do this:

See the \ref{chap:conclusion} chapter for more information

See the Conclusion chapter for more information

See Chapter \ref{chap:conclusion} for more

See Chapter 6 for more

The memoir package, among other, implements this. More information here: tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=nameref – Olivier Apr 10 '10 at 13:33
I think we've done this before: stackoverflow.com/questions/1491842/…. In addition stackoverflow.com/questions/943907/latex-links and stackoverflow.com/questions/522838/… are closely related. – dmckee Apr 11 '10 at 19:48
BTW-- I think that this versions has a more searchable title and should not be deleted. – dmckee Apr 11 '10 at 19:49

You could use the nameref package:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{nameref}

\begin{document}

\section{Me, myself and I}
\label{intro}
Hi, my name is Bart.

\section{Summary}
I introduced myself in section: \nameref{intro}.

\end{document}


produces:
