This is a bit related to my earlier post:

Getting correct section numbering for Appendix in a large document

I'm building a thesis with separate articles. I have a file main.tex and an introduction file intro.tex, and 2 articles article1.tex and article2.tex. I'm showing here below the main.tex with the intro and article 1 only:

some codes for the first few pages

some code for some intermediate pages





In intro.tex, I have at the end:


and in article1.tex, I have at the end:


The compilation is fine but I see that after article 1 in the pdf file, that the Bibliography lic appears instead of mybibibs1. Intro is followed by Bibliography lic as expected but to my surprise, I get Bibliiography lic also after article 1. And of course I'm getting [?] at every referencing throughout article 1.

What's going wrong here?

You probably want to look into the multibib package. ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/multibib.html – Willie Wong Oct 23 '10 at 18:50
Thanks but I don't need new names to replace "Bibliography" as the example given on page 4 of the multibib manual. – yCalleecharan Oct 23 '10 at 18:59
I have different bibliography files: 1 for introduction, 1 for article 1, etc.. – yCalleecharan Oct 23 '10 at 19:01

I put \usepackage{chapterbib} and now it works fine. Any other solutions are welcomed also. Could we do that with multibib also?

I'm accepting my own answer in absence of other answers.
