First off - the facts. I'm using the report documentclass and unsrt bibliographystyle, with Jabref to manage all the references.

The question - I'm working on my thesis and need to add a section like 'Further Reading' to my bibliography. I want to add this at the END of the already generated bibliography. I found this code (the 2nd answer which creates a bibnote) but it adds the text before the first bibitem whereas I want it at the end (unfortunately I'm on a deadline so I dont have time to play with it and figure it out myself).

As an extra bonus, the articles that need to go in further reading have not all been cited in the text. I can use \nocite to make sure they get a reference number, but if anyone has any suggestions so that I could either have them listed with something like bulletpoints, or renew the numbering so that the 'Further reading' starts with 1 would also be great.

[edit for more info]: I'm using bibtex. If it matters, I'm using Texnic Center as the editor and compiling straight to PDF

Do you use bibtex or do you use biblatex and biber? –  Kurt Sep 26 '12 at 17:46

Search for the {subdividing} tag: there's lots of questions related to this. You'll also find better answers if you have the time and willingness to switch to biber+biblatex. –  jon Sep 26 '12 at 19:39
have you tried to pput the text directly after the \bibliography command? –  Guido Sep 26 '12 at 19:55
jon - thanks for the tip - sometimes knowing what to look for is part of the problem guido - tried that, doesnt work. –  perdita Sep 27 '12 at 9:10

As you're "on a deadline", switching to biblatex is somewhat risky. Instead, use multibib as shown in the following MWE (it works with the unsrt style). Optionally, use the resetlabels package option.

Note: Unless you're using tools like latexmk, compile the example with

(pdf)latex <filename>
bibtex <filename>
bibtex further
(pdf)latex <filename>
(pdf)latex <filename>

using the command line (standard compiling routines of editors like TeXnicCenter won't do).


\newcites{further}{Further Reading}



  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
  author = {Buthor, B.},
  year = {2002},
  title = {Bravo},
  author = {Cuthor, C.},
  year = {2003},
  title = {Charlie},


Some text \cite{A01,B02}.

right. got it to work! last thing, any way i could have the further reading on the same page as the references? right now its on a new page. (this is just nitpicking though, im just happy to have it work!) –  perdita Sep 27 '12 at 9:29
@perdita Should it look like a standard (unnumbered) chapter in other respects, or would you like it to look like a section? –  lockstep Sep 27 '12 at 9:31
a section please :) –  perdita Sep 27 '12 at 9:33
@perdita Answer updated. –  lockstep Sep 27 '12 at 9:41
Brilliant. Answer has been upvoted accordingly, but I'll still say thanks again! –  perdita Sep 27 '12 at 9:51
