# 2 different bibliographies

I'm writing my thesis and I would like to make 2 "bibliography" references: The first one would be for the publications I'm in and the second one for external references. I've made one *.bib file right now and it's working but I have no idea how I should work with 2 *.bib files.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

You can use the chapterbib package and use the \bibliography command as many times as you need it, each with your specified .bib file.

\documentclass[11pt, letter]{article}
\usepackage{chapterbib}
\begin{document}
\section{First section}
And first bibliography.

\bibliographystyle{abbrv}
\bibliography{biblio1}

\section{Second section}
And second bibliography.

\bibliographystyle{abbrv} % (Optionnal) Re-specify the style of the bibliography
\bibliography{biblio2}

\end{document}


biblio1 and biblio2 being your .bib files.

• Thanks for your answer. I thought it was something more difficult. I should've started doing this. – tete Feb 28 '14 at 14:47

If I'm not mistaken, the OP only needs to incorporate more than one *.bib file into the main *.tex file. With standard BibTeX, this is easy. Rather than the standard

\bibliography{bibfile1}


one can use a comma-separated list, as in

\bibliography{bibfile1,bibfile2}

• I think the aim was to get two different bibliographies. This will just allow for two .bib files to appear in the same bibliography. – moewe Feb 27 '14 at 14:47
