I want to separate my bibliography in two parts: 1) Articles, books, etc. 2) Webpages.

I am using multibib, but something is wrong. When I run my Latex, it only shows the first bibliography.

I have tried to select a single piece of my latex doc, and tried run it separate. For this part it works.

My document is as follow:

\usepackage[top=3cm, bottom=3cm, left=2cm, right=2cm]{geometry}
\chead{\emph{Title of text}}
\cfoot{\thepage\ of \pageref{mylastpage}}


text... \cite{xxx}, \citeweb{xxxx}.




Is there something wrong with the preamble? It seems like something is annoying my second bibliography, although im not getting any errors?

  • I am using bibtex, by the way. – Christine Sep 4 '16 at 18:37
  • There is a typo in your code \newcites should end with } not ). Leaving this aside: Are you running bibtex on web.aux? – DG' Sep 4 '16 at 19:11
  • Im not sure what you mean by running web.aux? Do I have to make two separate bibtex files, in order make two separate bibliography? I only have a bibtex file called Litterature, but have runned bibtex several times on that. – Christine Sep 5 '16 at 9:58
  • According to the documentation, you have tor run bibtex for each bibliography created by \newcites. In your case this is web. – DG' Sep 5 '16 at 15:23

According to the multibib-documentation you have to run bibtex for each additional bibliography created by \newcites. You are creating one additional bibliography called "web" with \newcites{web}{Webpages). So you have to run (assuming your document is called yourdoc.tex):

pdflatex yourdoc
bibtex yourdoc
bibtex web
pdflatex yourdoc
pdflatex yourdoc

If you don't want to run bibtex manually, you can use latexmk, which is able to handle multibib.

  • I have now created two separate bibtex files. One called "Literature" and one called "Web". When I run my doc and bibtex as you described, it still doesn't work. It only shows "Literature". Also, bibtex "web" doesn't show up in my structure. – Christine Sep 6 '16 at 8:19

    You do not have to create two bibtex files. You just have to run bibtex twice, i.e. once for each .aux-file. – DG' Sep 6 '16 at 8:21
