### Changing title of bibliography page

Hi Vel,

I'm curious as how to change the title of the bibliography page from "Bibliography" to "References". I've changed the bib section of the main.tex to

\label{References}\lhead{\emph{References}} \renewcommand{\refname}{References}\bibliographystyle{apalike}\bibliography{Thesis.bib} \end{document}

but the PDF is still reading Bibliography.

Thanks,

Tanya

Hi Tanya,

You need to include \renewcommand{\bibname}{References} in the preamble rather than in the bibliography section.

hey vel,

how can i change the title of the preamble from "table of contest" to german "Tabellenverzeichnis" or "list of figures" to "Abbildungsverzeichnis"?
I have include \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} before \begin{document} in main.tex, but it doesn't work.

thanks,
maike

Hey Maike,

Your solution worked for me! I added \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} just before \begin{document} and Table of Contents became Inhaltsverzeichnis, List of Figures became Abbildungsverzeichnis and List of Tables became Tabellenverzeichnis.

Perhaps you have added something else into the document which is conflicting? Try it on a fresh copy of the template and see if it works. Also, make sure to compile twice as the Table of Contents can take 2 compiles to update. Good luck!

Hello Vel. Sorry to bring up an old issue, but your suggestion for changing Bibliography title into References might have worked out for Tanya yet I can't seem to tackle it... i was trying as you say to put the command in the preamble, like so:
\addbibresource{library.bib} % The filename of the bibliography\renewcommand{\bibname}{References}

just under the bibresource. i compile again and it still turn up as Bibliography.

\printbibliography[title=wombat]
