[Tex/LaTex] \cite and \footnote in together in Beamer


generally the references are kept at the last slide and cited using \cite command. I feel that this kind of notation is little difficult to understand from the point of an audience. Mostly, I use \footnote command, because it shows the reference at footer in same slide, which makes easier to understand. But \footnote can't print from bib file and therefore I always ended up putting one complete reference with \footnote. See below an example-



    This statement requires citation \cite{tobin1964commercial}

    But the way I want is \footnote{Tobin, James. Commercial banks as creators of" money.". Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics at Yale University, 1964.} %\footnote{tobin1964commercial}


This is how the generated PDF looks-

What I want is a way, so that I can use \footnote together with \cite command, something like \footnote{tobin1964commercial}. And this should show the complete reference in the footer.

\footcite might be a solution for you:


\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}

% only for this example, otherwise in .bib file

    title = {Commercial Banks as Creators of 'Money'},
    author = {Tobin, James},
    year = {1963},
    institution = {Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics, Yale University},
    type = {Cowles Foundation Discussion Papers},
    number = {159},
    url = {http://EconPapers.repec.org/RePEc:cwl:cwldpp:159}


    Text text \footcite{RePEc:cwl:cwldpp:159}
