I am trying to make use of two bibtex libraries in the same document for my thesis:

  • one for books (filename: literatur.bib)
  • one for internet resources (filename: internetquellen.bib)

but on running bibtex, I always get the following errormessage:

Processing: Thesis.aux

This is BibTeX, Version 0.99d (TeX Live 2010)

The style file: geralpha.bst

Database file #1: internetquellen.bib

Warning--I didn't find a database entry for "unlockinandroid"

Found 0 errors, and 1 warnings in 0 runs

...which leaves the conclusion that the literatur.bib is not processed (the key "unlockinandroid" is in the literatur.bib ), although in my thesis.tex I have it declared before the "internetquellen.bib":



\renewcommand{\bibname}{Internet Resources}
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Internet Resources}

My literatur.bib looks like this:

    Author = {W. Frank Ableson, Robi Sen, and Chris King},
    Date-Added = {2011-03-15 15:40:31 +0100},
    Date-Modified = {2011-03-18 12:35:41 +0100},
    Keywords = {Android, Book},
    Publisher = {Manning Publications Co.},
    Title = {Unlocking Android - a developer's guide},
    Year = {2009}}

Any directions for solving this would be appreciated:)

From the macros \bibliographystylelit and \bibliographylit, I infer that you are using the multibib package. If I am correct, the following quote from p. 1 of the multibib documentation is relevant:

Citations to each bibliography are collected in a new auxiliary file to be processed by BibTEX.

In other words, if your main file is thesis.tex, you will have to run bibtex thesis as well as bibtex lit after the first LaTeX run (p. 4). This is not done automatically by editors like TeXnicCenter or TeXworks; you have to use either the command line or write a batch file.

Thanx very much! – chris polzer Mar 18 '11 at 15:30

It is possible to use several bibtex libraries, if you seperate them with a comma:
