I'm using classicthesis for my dissertation. By default the TOC begins with "List of Figures", "List of Tables", and "Listings", as can be seen in the Contents.tex source file.

As per university style requirements, I need to add a "List of Appendices" section.

Modeled on the sections above it in Contents.tex, I've added the following code to produce a "List of Appendices".

%   List of Appendices

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Appendices}
\pdfbookmark[1]{List of Appendices}{List of Appendices}

\chapter*{List of Appendicies}
Appendix \ref{app:1} Foo \pageref{app:1}\\
Appendix \ref{app:2} Bar \pageref{app:2}\\
Appendix \ref{app:3} Baz \pageref{app:3}\\


But this is inelegant. Is there a way to do this so appendices are automatically picked up and listed, the way figures, tables, and code listings are?

Currently, I declare my appendices in main.tex as:


so they are already listed individually in the TOC.

According to the style requirements, the TOC should include a separate "List of Appendices" entry, and below, only display an entry for the beginning of the set of appendices, called "Appendices". In other words:


List of Figures
List of Tables
List of Appendices
Chapter 1
Chapter N

And the "List of Appendices" section should appear as:

List of Appendices

Appendix A Foo X
Appendix B Bar Y
Appendix C Baz Z

analogously to "List of Figures" say.

  • Can you please add to your question a simple mock-up document showing your current settings? How are you declaring your appendices? Aren't they already listed in the ToC? – Gonzalo Medina Jul 29 '13 at 22:01
  • Thanks @GonzaloMedina. I just edited my original question to clarify. – Andrew Sundstrom Jul 29 '13 at 22:45
