# print abstract in biblatex-chicago bibliography

I am able to print an abstract in my bibliography if I rename the field in my .bib "Annote" and call biblatex-chicago with \usepackage[annotation]{biblatex-chicago}

How can I print the "Abstract" field in the bibliography without renaming it? Is it something like

\let\Abstract\Annote


Would that be something to put in a .bst file in my working directory?

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{float}
\def\cms@choose{cms}
\usepackage[notes,isbn=false,url=false,backend=biber,annotation]{biblatex-chicago}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\bibliography{../currentBib}
\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{mathabx}
\let\cite\footcite
\date{\today}
\title{annotated bib}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\nocite{*}
\printbibliography
\end{document}


If you use Biber you can just map the abstract field to the annotation field with

\DeclareSourcemap{
\maps{
\map{
\step[fieldsource=abstract]
\step[fieldset=annotation, origfieldval]
}
}
}


This only works if you don't already use the annotation field for other purposes.

Or you go with

\DeclareFieldFormat{abstract}{\par\nobreak \vskip \bibitemsep #1}
\renewbibmacro*{entrytail}{% From reading.bbx, for annotated bibliography
\newunit\newblock
\iftoggle{cms@annotation}%
{\usebibmacro{annotation}%
\newunit\newblock}%
{}
\newunit\newblock
\usebibmacro{abstract}%
\newunit\newblock}


which just prints the abstract field after the annotation field. That means you can use both fields simultaneously.

MWE

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[notes,isbn=false,url=false,backend=biber,annotation]{biblatex-chicago}

\DeclareFieldFormat{abstract}{\par\nobreak \vskip \bibitemsep #1}
\renewbibmacro*{entrytail}{% From reading.bbx, for annotated bibliography
\newunit\newblock
\iftoggle{cms@annotation}%
{\usebibmacro{annotation}%
\newunit\newblock}%
{}
\newunit\newblock
\usebibmacro{abstract}%
\newunit\newblock}
