# Example of using thebibliography in the CurVe document class

I'm using the CurVe document class for C.V.s . I'd like an example of using thebibliography environment in this document class as I'm having trouble figuring it out from just the documentation. I want to have citations within my C.V., by the way, if this is possible.

Here is my minimal (non)working example:

fav_book.tex:

\begin{rubric}{My Favourite Book}

This is my favourite book~\cite{fav}
\end{rubric}


biblography.tex:

\begin{rubric}{}
\begin{thebibliography}{}

\bibitem{fav} Thor, A.U., 2017. \textit{Best book ever}. 1st ed. London: Best Publishers.

\end{thebibliography}
\end{rubric}


CV.tex:

\NeedsTeXFormat{LaTeX2e}
\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{curve}
\begin{document}
\makerubric{fav_book}
\makerubric{bibliography}

\end{document}


This is the relevant part of the documentation:

If you find this process too cumbersome, however, you can use the standard LATEX bibliography mechanisms with CurVe: the thebibliography environment is supported along with its \bibitem companion. The behavior is actually that of a rubric environment with its \entry* companion (with an empty prefix however). Hence, the layout of the bibliography remains consistent with the rest of the cv. This fact has two implications however: firstly, the argument to the thebibliography environment is unused in CurVe (but remains for compatibility with the rest of LATEX) because CurVe itself formats the keys and contents properly aligned. Secondly, the bibliographic environment must reside in its own file, as any other rubric. Don’t forget that if you happen to write the environment manually.

• Please have a look at Manually adding references and check if it just works. If not, please provide a minimal working example. Jan 15, 2017 at 15:32

I've worked it out: my mistake was to assume that the bibliography needed to be in a rubric like the others. Actually, bibliography.tex should look like this:
\begin{thebibliography}{}
