Chapter 7. Listing Content and References

LaTeX makes it very easy to create lists for many purposes. For example, we've seen that just the simple command \tableofcontents creates a nice looking table of contents. Let's just call it the TOC from now on. It simply takes the entries from the headings and from the numbers of the pages they fall on.

In this chapter, we will perform the following:

  • Decide which headings at which numbering level go to the TOC
  • Create and customize a list of figures (LOF) and a list of tables (LOT)
  • Insert arbitrary text and commands into the TOC and into other lists
  • Cite books and create a bibliography
  • Create an index
  • Modify the headings for all those lists

We shall start with the content.
