At Polytechnique Montréal, the LaTeX markup language is used in several departments. This guide shows how to use LaTeX with BibTeX - a free open source bibliographic management tool compatible with LaTeX. BibTeX notably allows creating high-quality scientific bibliographies formatted according to the IEEE citation style in English and French.

Moreover, Zotero, another free bibliographic management software, can help organize and manage BibTeX references.



The Library offers free BibTex/JabRef workshops for the Polytechnique community.

Register for a workshop through the Activity Calendar.
