Newbie here, trying to finish a dissertation with tufte-book.

I need to print all the contents of a .bib file in the bibliography; the chapters contain no citations (the document was culled from a Markdown file prepared for the web).

How do I do this? Many hours have been wasted trying to solve this seemingly simple task...

Thanks in advance

    Insert a \nocite{*} command – Guido Aug 31 '16 at 2:45

You should insert the instruction


somewhere in the document.

  • Hallelujah! And to get rid of the numbers and put it in Chicago Author-Date format? – christopher Aug 31 '16 at 2:53
  • @christopher - Which bibliography style do you use? – Mico Aug 31 '16 at 3:04
  • Chicago Author-Date, preferably with no numbers! Thanks a million. – christopher Aug 31 '16 at 3:08
  • In short, you don't have a bibliography style so far? Is there no \bibliographystyle directive in your document? – Mico Aug 31 '16 at 3:09
  • I was using \bibliographystyle{plainnat} but that is not the right format. – christopher Aug 31 '16 at 3:14
