Is there a way to include additional entries outside of the .bib file in the a bibliography for biblatex? For instance, I have a few web references (http) which I don't want to add in my general .bib file, but only within a particular document (.tex file). Is this possible? I am imagining something which might use the filecontents package like this, but not sure how this can be done with biblatex.

Simply provide a second .bib file (this can be done with a filecontents environment specified in your .tex file) and use \addbibresource two times.




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

  author = {Cuthor, C.},
  year = {2003},
  title = {Charlie},
