# Biblatex for Latex

This reallly isn't a stats question but highly related since many quantitative papers are written with tex files.

Anyway, I'm attempting to get references from bibtex into apa6th edition. I've spent a large amount of time trying to load biblatex and getting it to work. I don't think you can just load it with the typical \usepackage{biblatex} without first downloading the zip and installing it but am not sure. I'm looking for the following:

1) an example tex file that utilized biblatex that I could run
2) reference to resources that could help me to make this work
3) anyone's personal experience suggestions in how to make biblatex work

I am just becoming comfortable with latex and don't know where to go for help (like I do with R). I have no idea what commands go where to make \biblatex work. I was able to get references before with apcite but obviously 5th edition apa isn't going to cut it.

Vinux,
