Changing the title in "References"

Postby Hakarl » Sun Feb 18, 2018 8:19 pm

I have just composed a class syllabus in LaTeX and would like to change the title of my Reference page from "References" to "Suggested Reading" or "Reading List". How do I go about doing that. This may be a simple question but I am new at this and on the steep incline of the LaTeX learning curve.

Thanks in advance.

Depends on the class or package you are using, a minimal working example would give us just the information we need to help you.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi Johannes,

I am using the article class nothing complex. Does that suffice in terms of information? Thanks for responding.

\renewcommad{\referencename}{Suggested Reading}
If I remember correctly.

Could be \refname (with \renewcommand).

Yes, refname should be the correct one.

Here is the command I put in right in front of the bibliographystyle{} :

\renewcommand{\refname}{Suggested Reading}

And it works!

Thanks Johannes and Stefan!
