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 quotation, abbreviations, and especially for a formatted citation of literature, journals (periodicals), edited sources, and archive sources. In difference to its forerunner, it 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. That lists could refer to page and footnote numbers. BibArts has nothing to do with BibTeX. The lists are created by bibsort.
A file bibsort.exe is part of the package and successfully tested on Windows 8.1. The source code bibsort.c is not written for a certain operating system or compiler. This version 2.0 does no more use makeindex.
The package has massive extensions in comparison with its forerunners. It provides an emulation for 1.3 texts, but better keep copies of the files of older versions of BibArts. A short English documentation is ba-short.pdf, the full German documentation is bibarts.pdf.
