  • status


A bibliodiv is a section of a bibliography. A bibliography might be divided into sections in order to group different types of sources together, such as books, journal articles, websites, and so on.

A bibliography may contain any number of biblioentry or bibliomixed elements or any number of bibliodivs, but it cannot contain a mixture of both at the same level.

Processing expectations

Formatted as a displayed block. Some systems may display only those entries within a bibliodiv that are cited in the containing document. This may be an interchange issue. See Appendix C, Interchanging DocBook Documents.
