# How to let Bibliography appear in one page

After I compile my text, it shows like this:

I want to combine the text of Bibliography to the first page. How to do that? My code is:

\chapter{Bibliography}
\begin{thebibliography}{}
\bibitem{latexcompanion}
Wellner, P. (1993). Interacting with paper on the DigitalDesk. Communications of the ACM, 36(7), pp.87-96.


I thinks the problem is \chapter{Bibliography} and \begin{thebibliography}{} write the title of Bibliography twice.. Hope someone can help..

• It is indeed as you say. Just remove \chapter and only use \begin{thebibliography}{}. – Manuel Weinkauf Jan 31 '17 at 11:01
• By the way, there are several other things. Why are you typesetting the bibliography by hand? It would be much wiser to use LaTeX's ability to handle bibliographies automatically, preferably via BibLaTeX. Another thing is, why is the bibliography an appendix, it should normally be the last chapter/section/whatever of the main text. And just for the record, it is normally much better to post a full working minimal example if you want to have help, especially for more complex problems than this. – Manuel Weinkauf Jan 31 '17 at 11:04
• Again, why should a bibliography be an appendix. Appendices contain additional data, which the bibliography clearly is not! – Manuel Weinkauf Jan 31 '17 at 11:06
• You may start a new chapter without printing the actual chapter title, this may work. Look here. I cannot test that, because you do not provide a minimal example with which that would be possible, and it is your job to put that together. And just for the record, once again, a bibliography absolutely does not belong in an appendix! – Manuel Weinkauf Jan 31 '17 at 11:13
• @ManuelWeinkauf it's perfectly possible that the OP has to follow a style that says otherwise. It's also perfectly possible for a bibliography of sorts to form an appendix (further reading, for example -- I have textbooks that do this) – Chris H Jan 31 '17 at 12:15

You can add the following in the preamble of your document (i.e., between \documentclass and \begin{document}):
