"Arts"-style bibliographical information
BibArts is a LaTeX package to assist in making bibliographical features common in the arts and the humanities (history, political science, philosophy, etc.). bibarts.sty provides commands for quotations, abbreviations, and especially for a formatted citation of literature, journals (periodicals), edited sources, and archive sources. In difference to earlier versions, BibArts 2.x helps to use slanted fonts (italics) and is able to set ibidem automatically in footnotes. It will also copy all citation information, abbreviations, and register key words into lists for an automatically generated appendix. These lists may refer to page and footnote numbers. BibArts has nothing to do with BibTeX. The lists are created by bibsort (see below). BibArts requires the program bibsort, for which the sources and a Windows executable are provided. This program creates the bibliography without using MakeIndex or BibTeX. Its source is not written with any specific operating system in mind. A summary of contents is in English; the full documentation is in German.
