I browsed around and didn't quite find what I am looking for.

What I am looking for is a way to: - use ONE BIB file for the whole thesis. - have latex generate a chapter by chapter reference list.

Is that possible? How?

Any help is appreciated.

P.S: It looks like everyone is making a different bib file for each chapter. :/


None off the existing solutions (from chapterbib to biblatex/biber) cares about how you organize the bib-entries in the bib-files. You can use one or ten bib-files. With biblatex you can use refsections or refsegments to split the bibliographies. Here an example for refsegment. I used \section instead of \chapter to get everything on one page, but it works for \chapter too.



\printbibliography[segment=\therefsegment,title=first bib]

\cite{herrmann, doody}

\printbibliography[segment=\therefsegment,title=second bib]
