    Getting rid of the title of the references section

    I would quite like there not to be a big sign saying `References' at the start of my references section; I would rather there was nothing there (for space-saving reasons). Is it possible to remove this somehow?

    Nope, I presume because it is a section title not a label.

    Well, how about omitting the \begin{bibliography} and \end{bibliography} commands, and making sure the references themselves typeset correctly?

    Well yes, that would work, but it is neither neat nor elegant...

    I haven't tried this myself, but I believe that \renewcommand{\bibname}{} will cause the title to become blank. It may still leave the same amount of vertical space on the page as a title would occupy, but you can then remove that by a command of the form \vspace{-1cm}.

    Thanks. I had a friend give me that exact same reply...

    This does work, however I was in the article environment so I needed to put \refname instead of \bibname.
