# Multiple bibliography in Latex

I want to insert multiple bibliographyes into my document. I just want one for the whole document and one for each appendix.

I tried different packages (multibib, biblatex,...) but cant seem to obtain a correct answer.

Each of the bibliographyes are in a different .bib file.

How can I approach the problem?

PD: I am using Miktex and Texmaker

See the section about preparing bibliographies in this presentation on my LaTeX and Friends site. –  Marc van Dongen Jun 17 '13 at 10:59
@wasteofspace I really cant get to do nothing from that link... bilbiographyes are not shown... –  Ander Biguri Jun 17 '13 at 10:59
@MarcvanDongen amazing work done there! Still can get it :(. Starting from page 49 I tried to follow all the steps to 50 (several slices). The only thing i don have equal is the backend options, as I cant use bibtex (dont know why it gives compiling error). IT just doesnt print any bilbiography... –  Ander Biguri Jun 17 '13 at 11:15

You can use the chapterbib package for that purpose.

This is how I normally use it.

I create a main file, let's say:

test.tex

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{chapterbib}

\begin{document}

\include{chapter1}
\include{appendix1}
\include{appendix2}

\end{document}


This is the file where I save my chapters

chapter1.tex

\chapter{Test1}

some text\cite{author1}

\chapter{Test2}

some text\cite{author2}

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{biblio-chap1}


This is my first appendix

appendix1.tex

\appendix
\chapter{First}

some text\cite{app1}

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{biblio-app1}


and this is the second

appendix2.tex

\appendix
\chapter{Second}

some text\cite{app2}

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{biblio-app2}


Now, biblio-chap1.bib is the overall bibliography and author1 and author2 citations come from there.

The bibliography biblio-app1.bib is related to the first appendix and app1 citation come from there, while biblio-app2.bib is related to the second appendix and app2 citation come from there.

To get a fully compiled document, run

pdflatex main

bibtex chapter1

bibtex appendix1

bibtex appendix2

pdflatex main

pdflatex main

Having a look at its documentation will anyway let you know how to adjust it for your needs.
