This module reproduces some, but not all, of the functionality of the
Drupal Biblio module. It defines:

  • A content type called Bibliographic Reference (short name "biblio_pub"), with
    fields to store bibliographic data.
  • A views page that shows all of your bibliographic data at URL /biblio within
    your site. It is sorted in alphabetic order by author (choosing the earliest
    author in alphabetic order for each entry).
  • A layout that overrides the default for the taxonomy page, so that if you
    visit the taxonomy page for an author, it shows the bibliographic records for
    that author. If you have customized the default layout on your site, you will
    most likely want to customize this taxonomy page layout in the same way.
  • A Feeds configuration for importing bibliographic information in MODS format
    into Bibliographic Reference content items. If you have the required Feeds
    modules installed (see below), you can go to /import in your site and import
    MODS data. (See for more on the Library of
    Congress MODS format for bibliographic data.) The feeds configuration could be
    edited to take data from a URL instead of a local file.


None of the biblio submodules have been ported yet.

If you are using any of the submodules and would like to see them available for
use in Backdrop, please let us know which you are using on this issue:


This module requires the following contributed modules:

  • Multifield (machine name: multifield)
  • Field Group (field_group)

To import bibliographic information from external soures, you will also need:

  • Feeds (feeds) -- a release after 1.x-1.0.0-beta
  • Feeds XPath Parser (feeds_xpathparser)
  • Job Scheduler (job_scheduler) -- required by Feeds, but not used directly

Version Numbers

The Drupal 7 module is on the 1.x branch.

This Backdrop module is on the 2.x branch because the underlying structure of a
bibliographic reference has changed sifnificantly: it is now a node.
