# multibib and links to bibliography (with hyperref, natbib)?

I'm using the multibib package but cannot get links to work with it and hyperref. Is this combination possible? A sample document follows:

If I add a \usepackage{natbib} in the preamble then links do work, but the custom labeling provided by multibib is removed. For example, without natbib the citations are [F3] and [B2] and no links. With natbib, citations are (3) and (2) and do link.

The multibib documentation (PDF) has a section (3) on how to handle packages which modify \@citex, but I am not sure how to use the information there to solve this problem.

% multibiblinktest.tex

\documentclass[10pt,letter]{article}

\usepackage[labeled,resetlabels]{multibib}
\newcites{F}{Foo}
\newcites{B}{Bar}

\usepackage{hyperref}
\hypersetup{
citecolor=blue,   % color of links to bibliography
urlcolor=blue,    % color of external links
pagebackref=true,
implicit=false,
bookmarks=true,
bookmarksopen=true,
pdfdisplaydoctitle=true
}

% \usepackage{natbib} % links work, citations not formatted by multibib...

\begin{document}

\nociteF{ref1}
\nociteF{ref2}
\nociteB{ref3}

A link to \citeF{ref4} and \citeB{ref5} goes here.

\bibliographystyleF{unsrt}
\bibliographyF{test.bib}

\bibliographystyleB{unsrt}
\bibliographyB{test.bib}

\end{document}


And the bibliography file:

% test.bib
@Article {ref1, author = Author1, title = Title1, year = 2010}
@Article {ref2, author = Author2, title = Title2, year = 2010}
@Article {ref3, author = Author3, title = Title3, year = 2010}
@Article {ref4, author = Author4, title = Title4, year = 2010}
@Article {ref5, author = Author5, title = Title5, year = 2010}


And to compile the document:

pdflatex multibiblinktest
bibtex F
bibtex B

I'm not setting multibib, hyperref, and natbib as requirements to solve this issue. A different package than multibib, if it provides the desired result, would be acceptable. –  mankoff Aug 28 '10 at 21:04
Is biblatex a possibility for you? –  Joseph Wright Aug 28 '10 at 22:00
biblatex is a possibility. I have installed it. I have not found a simple tutorial on how to replace bibtex with biblatex, nor how to do something as complex as what I am trying to do with multibib... –  mankoff Aug 28 '10 at 23:12

You are using a standard BibTeX style with natbib. You should be using the unsrtnat style rather than unsrt as you are using the natbib package.

That does not seem to have a positive effect on the issue. Links are created, but multibib labeling is now ignored. –  mankoff Aug 29 '10 at 15:04

I have changed the line:

\usepackage[labeled,resetlabels]{multibib}


to

\usepackage[labeled]{multibib}


And it seems to work without natbib.

Make sure you keep multibib before hyperref!

I'm using TeXLive 2010 pretest..... I dunno if that mater. –  Dima Aug 28 '10 at 23:52
The numbering is weird though. F1, F2, F3, B4, B5..... –  Dima Aug 28 '10 at 23:53
Not a workable solution for me due to the numbering being messed up. Also, when I use the code I included above but remove the "resetlabels", I do not get links. My version: \$ pdflatex --version pdfTeX 3.1415926-1.40.9-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.7) kpathsea version 3.5.7 Copyright 2008 Peter Breitenlohner (eTeX)/Han The Thanh (pdfTeX). –  mankoff Aug 29 '10 at 0:05
I'm using texlive "0.20080816-3" installed via fink, which provides pdflatex version shown above. –  mankoff Aug 29 '10 at 0:06
Mine is pdfTeX 3.1415926-1.40.11-2.2 (TeX Live 2010) but I really have no clue which one of the bunch is the culprit. –  Dima Aug 29 '10 at 14:31

I use multibib and hyperref. I experienced that if I load multibib before hyperref the links of \cite are gone, but other links to pages, footnotes, images etc. stay. For me loading hyperref before multibib works.

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: You can use backticks ` to mark your inline code as I did in my edit. –  doncherry Oct 17 '11 at 18:36
Any chance you can supply a small example code? –  mankoff Oct 18 '11 at 4:36
