# How do I remove the title of the References section so I can use two lists?

I want to include two bib lists in a document.

The simplest way to do that, I thought, would be to use:

``````some text
\bibliography{file1}

some text

\bibliography{file2}
``````

but this doesn't work and gives an error (too many bibdata).

I also do not want to have the "References" title in the beginning of each list. I am using `abbrv` style.

Any ideas how to fix that?

I think what I could do is compile each list separately into a `.bbl` file, and then include the `.bbl` file as part of the `.tex` file. But I would like to avoid doing that, because it would require a more complex compilation process.

How about using multibib? –  mafp Jan 23 '13 at 22:36
The package "multibib" might be solution. Moreover, there are some useful information in this link: tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=multbib –  Pouya Jan 23 '13 at 22:36
it's not totally clear whether you want any header for either list. if you do want a header, then resetting `\bibname` or `\refname` (as appropriate for the document class) would allow you to tailor the header text. –  barbara beeton Jan 23 '13 at 23:04

Don't remove the heading "References", redefine it to what you want. The multibbl package (mentioned in the above FAQ entry) provides a shortcut for changing the title of the partial bibliographies. For packages that don't provide a similar facility, you can usually redefine `\bibname` or `\refname` to get the same effect.
