# Alphabetically numbered references for use in LaTeX letters

Do you write letters that have bibliographies, like scientific reports? Do you like to typeset your letters in LaTeX using either the class letter or scrlttr2? Then the letter class option file provided below might be just the thing you want: It facilitates alphabetically numbered references for letters that otherwise would not provide a thebibliography environment. You can use this file either as in

\documentclass[bib,<other lco files and options>]{scrlttr2}


or, if using the standard letter class (or any other document class, really), by loading the code as

\input{bib.lco}


Here’s the file:

Enjoy!
