# Place bibliography items at bottom of frame

Is there an easy way to add bibliography items to the bottom of a frame where they are referenced?

I am using Beamer and Biblatex.

• I suppose biblatex's \footcite doesn't work as you want it to? – Seamus Nov 23 '10 at 16:07
• @Seamus: You should convert your comment into an answer. Perhaps refer to the \footfullcite command which always prints a full citation. – lockstep Nov 26 '10 at 19:52
• @lockstep OK. Now we're even – Seamus Nov 26 '10 at 20:14

BibLaTeX's \footfullcite (hat tip to lockstep) might do what you want.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{biblatex}
\bibliography{foo}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
Here is text\footfullcite{jones00}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


Will display the full reference to jones00 from the foo.bib bibliography.

• As, I compile the code you described above. The citation is not printed in the end of slide. Instead it is printing whatever is inside the \footfullcite{jones00} i-e jones00 is printed. It is not picking the reference from ff.bib (as foo.bib is in the same folder). What would be the possible cause of it? thanks – kaka Jan 15 '15 at 2:13
• Have you run biber and then latex again? In any case, this seems like a separate issue from the one discussed here. – Seamus Jan 15 '15 at 19:27
• \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} solved my issue ! – kaka Jan 15 '15 at 23:57
• I am having same issue as kaka even with \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex} – NAASI Jul 28 '15 at 15:57
• I was also having issues even when adding \usepackage[backend=bibtex]{bib latex}. In the following post, Joseph Wright suggests adding \makeatletter \def\blx@maxline{77} \makeatother after loading biblatex: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/311426/…. This worked for me! – Michael R Aug 17 '17 at 15:59
