The Bibliography feature writes citations for the records in the currently open datafile. You can write a bibligraphy for all the records in the datafile, or only those records that have been tagged for inclusion in a subset.

If you need to write a course bibliography, for instance, you will need to select the subset of bibliographic records for that course, and then use the Bibliography feature to write citations for those records.

You can also use this feature to write notecards for records in your database.
