# Is there a way to divide bibliography, indexes in two volumes?

I'm working on a big thesis, divided in two volumes (but one pdf), which are sequentially numbered. Main TOC and TOCs for volumes are made using titletoc package:

\startcontents[main]
.....
\entcontents[main]


I'm interested is there a way to divide bibliography (biblatex) and indexes(glossaries), so bibliography for Volume 1 will be put after Volume 1 main text and respectively bibliography for Volume 2 after main text of Volume 2. The same question I'm addressing regarding indexes.

This answers the bibliography part. For the glossary part take a look at Glossary per chapter or section.

Supposing your two volumes are two \parts, add the option refsection=part when loading biblatex and issue

\printbibliography[section=1]


at the end of the first volume and

\printbibliography[section=2]


at the end of the second volume.

If your volumes don't correspond to \parts but to something else, change the option accordingly.

MWE

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\usepackage[refsection=part,backend=biber]{biblatex}

\begin{document}

\part{Volume I}

\chapter{Test}
\cite{aksin}

\chapter{Test}
\cite{angenendt}

\printbibliography[section=1]

\part{Volume II}

\chapter{Test}
\cite{aksin}

\chapter{Test}
\cite{bertram}

\printbibliography[section=2]

\end{document}


Output (1st bibliography)

Output (2nd bibliography)

• could you suggest how to do the same with indexes? – saldenisov Jan 24 '15 at 9:50
• @saldenisov As I said in the answer, take a look at tex.stackexchange.com/q/89107/27635. It can only be done with Xindy and I don't have it installed, so I can't test it. – karlkoeller Jan 24 '15 at 9:52
