I would like to split bibliography list into a list with @misc tags, where all url's references are and all other tags for offline reference list. How is it possible to do it? I have snippet of a template that should make it possible:

  \defbibheading{online}{\section*{Online References}}
   \defbibheading{offline}{\section*{Printed References}}

    \( \type{online} \)}

    \( \not \type{online} \)}

but it doesn't work for me. I am new in Latex so I am using a template which was defined not by myself.. I will be glad for any help. If needed, I can upload a part of my thesis for test purposes on a server. Btw. I am using MikeTex 2.9 with TeXnicCenter 2.0 Alpha 3

    Welcome at tex.sx! The code snippets seem to require the biblatex package, and it may well be that your template doesn't use biblatex. You need to provide more information about the template you use. Note that you should try to add a minimal working example (MWE), not a part of your thesis.

    Note that if you are allowed to use (switch to) biblatex for your thesis, the answer to your question is very easy - splitting bibliographies by type is one of the package's standard features.

  • could you please provide a sample of sorting the bib through biblatex? It's to complicated to shorten my sample...

Here's a simple example of splitting a bibliography by type using biblatex. (I used the filecontents package to make the example compilable, but it is not necessary for the solution.)




  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
  author = {Knuth, Donald E.},
  year = {1986},
  title = {The \TeX book},





\printbibliography[title={Other References},nottype=book]


enter image description here

    +1, but I think the way the Pamp described it, it would be nottype=misc and type=misc (even though it might be better to use @online for online resources).
