# Using bibentry and section together

I am using Latex for my annotated bibliography. In this document, I currently have a section* like this:

\section*{\bibentry{Li2010}}
blah blah blah

\section*{\bibentry{Andrews2012}}
blah blah blah


This generates a list of sections with the citation as the section heading. What I want to do is reference different section. So, I want to add a reference using \cite{sec:Li2012} to reference to that section. Since, I cannot label section* I converted to section instead.

So, something like this

\section{\bibentry{Li2010}}
\label{sec:Li2010}
blah blah blah

\section{\bibentry{Andrews2012}}
\label{sec:Andrews2012}
blah blah blah \ref{sec:Li2010}


This gives me an error undefined control sequence \section\bibentry{Li2010}. As I understand, it is caused by the bibentry code because, it works fine, if I actually type some normal string in the section heading.

What I want in the end is to have each bibentry labelled as a heading (using section or anything else) and then be able to reference them? How can I do this?

Here is the complete document template

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{natbib,bibentry}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{refcheck}
\usepackage{color}

\bibliographystyle{plain}

\title{Annotated Bibliography}

\titleformat*{\section}{\normalsize\bfseries}

\date{}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
%\tableofcontents
\nobibliography{main}

\bibentry{\bibentry{Andrews2012}}
blah blah blah

\section*{\bibentry{Li2010}}
blah blah blah

\end{document}
