Two tables of content

I am trying to include two different tables of contents in my latex document:

  1. The first one, is a short table of contents, that only includes the chapter and section headings. This table is to be included in the "frontmatter" part of the document.
  2. The second one, is the extended table of contents, that includes all the chapter/section/subsection/subsubsection/paragraph headings of the document. It is to be included in the "backmatter" part of the document.

Since both tables have the same entries, I tried to do that with the following code:

\renewcommand{\contentsname}{Short TOC}

(... document ...)

\renewcommand{\contentsname}{Extended TOC}

The result is that the table of contents is only printed once. Either in the frontmatter or in the blackmatter, but I could not get it to be printed twice as I need.

Is there an 'easy way' for doing this or do I have to create an additional table of contents in a separated contents file?

Kind regards and thanks in advance for your help, Ricardo.

  • The shorttoc package should be what you're looking for.
