# Multiple bibiographies using biblatex, and resetting numbers

I am writing a sort of large CV, and I've split my publications into several blocks, using this:

\nocite{*}
title={Printed Sources},resetnumbers=true]
title={Online Sources},resetnumbers=true]


which I mostly copied from the biblatex manual. However, the numbers aren't being reset as I want. The numbers in the Online Sources part, for example, go [13], [21], [29], [36] instead of [1], [2], [3], [4] as I'd like them to.

Probably there are options better suited to my purpose than resetnumbers, but I haven't found them yet. Basically I want each sub-bibliography to be numbered starting at [1], and increasing in increments of 1. Ideas or advice?

• You have to load biblatex with the option defernumbers=true if you want to specify resetnumbers=true when printing bibliographies. Aug 19, 2013 at 6:19
• Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem: it will help us to see if @karlkoeller's suggestion is the one needed here. Aug 19, 2013 at 6:21

If you want to use the option resetnumbers=true when printing specific bibliographies, you have to define the option defernumbers=true globally.

This means that you have to load biblatex with the mentioned option, e.g.

\usepackage[defernumbers=true,backend=biber]{biblatex}


MWE just to test it

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[defernumbers=true,backend=biber]{biblatex}

\begin{document}

\nocite{*}

Output with defernumbers=true
• I am using modernCV class and using both defernumbers=true' and resetnumbers=true at appropriate locations but still the numbering for my bibliography is still not reset. Is there any issue/conflict with modernCV package or am I doing something wrong, \section{Referred Journals Publications} \nocite{*} \printbibliography[type=article, heading=none, resetnumbers=true]` Oct 8, 2021 at 14:12
