I need to include my full bibliography into my report and the references I have used (in 2 separate sections)

I have my bib file attached to the document and the references are included at the end of the document but I can't find out how to add the full contence of my bibliography.

Edit

The bib file contains 70 records of the reading/research I have done, but I have only cited about half to 3/4 of them. The university wants referenced bibliographies and not referenced bibliographies in separate sections.

I have tried the \nocite{*} command but it hasn't worked.

\document{begin}
%contense of report 


\section{references}
%References used in paper

\section{bibliography}
%full bibliography

\bibliography{biblyography}%my bib file
\bibliographystyle{cell}
\end{document}

hope that is an ok MWE

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. –  Marco Daniel Apr 21 '13 at 11:39
    
Welcome to TeX.sx! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Upvoting is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you. –  Guido Apr 21 '13 at 11:39

does adding \nocite{*} somewhere in the document help? –  Guido Apr 21 '13 at 11:41
    
it not a duplicate as i need both the references used in the file and the full bib. the \nocite{*} dosen't work as the bib is in a separate file –  Dan Apr 21 '13 at 11:50

@Dan: If it isn't duplicate, please add a minimal working example as described above. Without an MWE we will close this question. –  Marco Daniel Apr 21 '13 at 12:08

we have reopened the question.

Let me try to summarize our comment marathon.

  1. Splitting the bibliography in two sections with standard BibTeX is really difficult if you have only one .bib file. If you have two .bib files you can work with multibib. You need one .bib file with non referenced entries and one with referenced one. Then you can work with \nocite{*} multibib needs a special handling of compilation. A way to simplify these steps is the usage of arara: Multibib with TeXworks: how to parse second .aux file?

  2. Using the modern and great package biblatex will simplify your life. To switch from a standard style to biblatex is described in: What to do to switch to biblatex?. If you switch to biblatex you can split your bibliography very simple, what is explained here: How to split bibliography into "works cited" and "works not cited"? -- It's important to know that biblatex uses Biber as backend instead of BibTeX. Although biblatex can work with BibTeX you should use Biber to get the "full power" of biblatex ;-). The compilation steps are:

    • (pdf)latex
    • biber
    • (pdf)latex
    • (pdf)latex

    Of course these steps can also be simplified by arara:

    % arara: pdflatex
    % arara: biber
    % arara: pdflatex
    % arara: pdflatex
