Hello DorothC)e b

It will take this community some time to develop best practices.

It seems to me that the most semantically specific markup available is
generally best. Since there is an element (<ref-list>) specific to your use
and it is available in the location you want to put the bibliography, I
suggest that you should use it.

<sec sec-type=bbiblb> is available for those instances where there are
bibliographies in other locations in the document. For example, some very
large standards have bibliographies at the end of each major section/chapter,
and I have heard that there are some standards that have bibliographies in
other places in the body of the text.

Now I see in the NISO documentation of <sec> that it should be used as

explicitly named as one of the other back matter components, that is, it is
not named as an annex (<app>), an acknowledgment (<ack>), a bibliography
(<ref-list>), etc.

do we even have an @sec-type=bbiblb?
