I would like to use multiple bib-files for multiple bibliographies in my seminar work (I want to split books from internet sources). To simplify it, I tried to create 2 bib-files and then do
\section{Books} \bibliography{sourcesbooks} \section{Internet sources} \bibliography{sources2}.
But this just prints the same bibliography 2 times. I also tried some packages, like multibib, bibtopic, etc. (I am using jurabib for footcites and so on).

    With biblatex it is very easy to filter bibliographies based on categories. For example \printbibliography[type=article] – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Oct 31 '16 at 14:10
  • Second the vote for biblatex for customizatio and advanced stuff. – Michael Palmer Oct 31 '16 at 15:03

Please in the future post a compilable minimal example from which to start helping you to get what you want.

However, as samcarter already said: It will be a very good idea for you to switch to BibLaTeX, where all of this will be very easy. There, you can add as many bib-files as you want, using several \addbibresource{} commands. You can then simply print separate bibliographies per entry-type using

\printbibliography[title=Articles, type=article]
\printbibliography[title=Books, type=book]

Or you can apply even finer separation of entry-types, by first defining separate bibfilters and using the subtype-field per entry, eg.

\defbibfilter{BookType1}{type=book and subtype=Type1}
\defbibfilter{BookType2}{type=book and subtype=Type2}
\printbibliography[title=Books of Type 1, filter=BookType1]
\printbibliography[title=Books of Type 2, filter=BookType2]
  • Thanks! I had to edit MUCH things, but this solution seems to work the best. Thank you very much! – ThexXTURBOXx Oct 31 '16 at 15:39
  • What if the most logical way to disambiguate the sections/entries is by files, not by type? For example, I have "article" type entries in both reviewed.bib and preprint.bib, but I'd like them to be listed in different sections on my CV. – Daniel Kessler Nov 17 '16 at 14:39
  • @DanielKessler Short answer: I don't know, it's probably possible. If you want to do that, you should ask a new question yourself, though. The comments below answers are not the right place to ask for something basically completely different to achieve. – Manuel Weinkauf Nov 21 '16 at 12:26
