I was happy with using \begin{thebibliography} \bibitem \end{thebibliography} (at the end of chapters of my thesis). I have added a new bibliography with continuous numbering (Manually numbering) at the end of my appendices(after some pages of ending of chapters).

In the first bibliography, I converted my title from Bibliography to References (I used \renewcommand{\bibname}{References}) but in second bibliography I want title as "References (Cont.)". How can I do that?

FYI: I didn't call any file for references. I wrote all of them manually using \bibitem.

  • Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks `, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it).

  • Thanks for reply and suggestion. As I am first time posting a query I was not aware of this.

  • Would \renewcommand{\bibname}{References (Cont.)} work for you? This would be followed by \begin{thebibliography} etc.

As mentioned by Mico you can redefine the name of references in front of the environment. This can be achieved by:

\renewcommand{\bibname}{References (Cont.)}
