# How to format the bibliography while we are using works cited and further reading

I am using the following codes for my notes..

\chapter{A Unified Operator Theory of Generalized Inverses}

See this \cite{kesavan2014functional} gives [2] as the reference number, but I want that this has to be [1], since I am citing this as my first citation in my first page of my notes.

\printbibliography[title={Works cited},category=cited]% default title for article class: "References"

\end{document}


## Question:

1. I wish my "work cited" must give me the references list in the order whatever i am maintaining in my citation in my notes. That is, if I cite the mos in my first page is has to be the first reference in my work cited.

2. And in the Further reading, I should restart the numbering.

3. And I dont want the url for a book in my Reference list.

Here is my output,

## Works cited page.

Further reading page --

All are in distinct pages, to give minimal i am croping only the contents.

• Can we infer from this post that your problem in tex.stackexchange.com/q/278647/35864 was resolved? If so please consider posting an answer there or deleting the question altogether. – moewe Nov 29 '15 at 7:18
• @moewe As you have given in your comment. I have tried to go with biblatex. I will add an answer there, if I resolved this problem. Because the numbering also must be corrected. thank you. – David Nov 29 '15 at 7:26

In order to have the citations sorted as they appear in the text, you need the sorting option sorting=none.

If you have several bibliographies in a numeric style you should also listen to biblatex's advice in the .log file and use defernumbers=true.

Your second bibliography then needs a resetnumbers to restart the numbering, I have also added prefixnumbers={F} so one can distinguish the further reading from the works cited with one glance.

\printbibliography[title={Further Reading},notcategory=cited,resetnumbers,prefixnumbers={F}]


Your .bib file was missing several commas (only the very last in an entry may be omitted) and threw several errors, I have changed that in the MWE
