# titlesec and bibliography

I use titlesec to capitalize and display the chapter title at the center. Everything is fine until I get to the bibliography, the word 'bibliography' is not capitalized. Here is an example

\documentclass[a4paper, 12pt]{report}
\usepackage{cite}

\usepackage{titlesec}
\titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{1in}{20pt}
\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
{\centering\normalfont\normalsize}{\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename} \thechapter}{0pt}{\small}

\titleformat{\section}
{\normalfont\normalsize\bfseries}{\thesection}{1em}{}
\titleformat{\subsection}
{\normalfont\normalsize\bfseries}{\thesubsection}{1em}{}
\titleformat{\subsubsection}
{\normalfont\normalsize\bfseries}{\thesubsubsection}{1em}{}

\begin{document}
\chapter{Chapter 1}
This is a workingn example
\begin{thebibliography}{100}

\bibitem{Niesen}

minutes online,
http://blog.nielsen.com/nielsenwire/global/social-media-accounts-for-22-perc%

Thanks.

But why should Bibliography be capitalized with your settings? You are only applying \MakeUppercase to \chaptername (that is, to the word "Chapter") and not to the actual titles. –  Gonzalo Medina Sep 4 '12 at 2:43
I didn't write the titlesec settings. If I remember correctly, I asked here a while ago how to center and capitalize the chapter title and you helped me. How do I capitalize "Bibliography"? Thanks. –  knguyen Sep 4 '12 at 2:46
I didn't mean to be rude with my previous comment. I apologize if I gave that impression. –  Gonzalo Medina Sep 4 '12 at 3:11

There's no reason why "Bibliography" should be capitalized with your settings. You are only applying \MakeUppercase to \chaptername (i.e., to the word "Chapter") and not to the actual titles. If you want to have the word "Bibliography" capitalized you can use the etoolbox package to patch the \thebibliography command:

\documentclass[a4paper, 12pt]{report}
\usepackage{cite}
\usepackage{etoolbox}

\patchcmd{\thebibliography}{\chapter*{\bibname}}{\chapter*{\MakeUppercase{\bibname}}}{}{}

\usepackage{titlesec}
\titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{1in}{20pt}
\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
{\centering\normalfont\normalsize}{\MakeUppercase{\chaptertitlename} \thechapter}{0pt}{\small}

\titleformat{\section}
{\normalfont\normalsize\bfseries}{\thesection}{1em}{}
\titleformat{\subsection}
{\normalfont\normalsize\bfseries}{\thesubsection}{1em}{}
\titleformat{\subsubsection}
{\normalfont\normalsize\bfseries}{\thesubsubsection}{1em}{}

\chapter{Chapter 1}
