  BibTeX 
 
    A  {Tex}  extension  package  for  bibliographic 
  citations,  distributed  with  {LaTeX}.  BibTeX  uses  a 
  style-independent  bibliography  database  (.bib  file)  to  produce 
  a  list  of  sources,  in  a  customisable  style,  from  citations  in 
  a  Latex  document.  It  also  supports  some  other  formats. 
 
  BibTeX  is  a  separate  program  from  LaTeX.  LaTeX  writes 
  information  about  citations  and  which  .bib  files  to  use  in  a 
  ".aux"  file.  BibTeX  reads  this  file  and  outputs  a  ".bbl"  file 
  containing  LaTeX  commands  to  produce  the  source  list.  You 
  must  then  run  LaTeX  again  to  incorporate  the  source  list  in 
  your  document.  In  typeset  documents,  BibTeX"  is  written  in 
  upper  case,  with  the  IB"  slightly  smaller  and  with  the  E"  as 
  a  subscript.  BibTeX  is  described  in  the  {LaTeX}  book  by
