I have a Bibtex file and I am trying to get a pdf file that contains all the references without any text. My intention is to use it as a list of relevant literature. Of course I can just use \nocite{ev, ery, thing} but then I always have to add items as something changes in the bibtex file. Is there an easy way to tell latex to list all the items from my bibtex file?

Thanks! :)

    Or you can use \nocite{*} Aug 1, 2014 at 14:50

The biblist package is what you want. From my own work (minimal setup)




      {\Large \bf My Bibliography}



This creates its own document, you can pdf that.

  • Aren't you confusing biblist with listbib? The former in an option, while the latter is a package. Aug 1, 2014 at 13:30
  • Nope. Just double checked this code. Works fine. From WinEdt ran pdflatex.exe "prettyprint_bib.tex" (file above) and got a pdf with my full bib listing. I'm using textlive 2013.

  • It's weird. It works here as well. But the documentation for biblist clearly states that it's an option , not a package. But then again, that documentation is from 1992. Aug 1, 2014 at 14:15
  • LOL -- yeah, lots of latex stuff from the 1990s. I'm afraid I can't recall a reference to my code above. I can say my code is about 10 years old (c/p situation), that's when I was looking into this. I might have gotten it from Goossens et al.

  • I still have "The LaTeX Companion" on my bookshelf, although I haven't used it for a while. But it's in there alright. Aug 1, 2014 at 15:17
