I'm preparing a beamer for a talk and I would like to include some bibliography at the end.

My idea was to include two different slides, one with the basic bibliography and other with extra references.

I haven't had no idea of how I could do it, but I found this question that also cites these posts.

The question suggests to use multibib package. And that is what I have done. However, I can't achieve the desired result. The problem is that the first part doesn't produce any reference.

Here is my mwe.tex




\usepackage{ragged2e} % For justifying text






\frametitle{Selected bibliography}


\frametitle{Other bibliography}



I include my bibliography.bib file too:

@article {Courant:dirac_manifolds,
    AUTHOR = {Courant, Theodore James},
     TITLE = {Dirac manifolds},
   JOURNAL = {Trans. Amer. Math. Soc.},
  FJOURNAL = {Transactions of the American Mathematical Society},
    VOLUME = {319},
      YEAR = {1990},
    NUMBER = {2},
     PAGES = {631--661},
      ISSN = {0002-9947},
   MRCLASS = {58F05 (53C57)},
  MRNUMBER = {998124},
MRREVIEWER = {Patrick Iglesias},
       DOI = {10.2307/2001258},
       URL = {https://doi.org/10.2307/2001258},

@article {Gualtieri:thesis,
    AUTHOR = {Gualtieri, Marco},
     TITLE = {Generalized complex geometry},
   JOURNAL = {Ann. of Math. (2)},
  FJOURNAL = {Annals of Mathematics. Second Series},
    VOLUME = {174},
      YEAR = {2011},
    NUMBER = {1},
     PAGES = {75--123},
      ISSN = {0003-486X},
   MRCLASS = {53D18},
  MRNUMBER = {2811595},
MRREVIEWER = {Frederik Witt},
       DOI = {10.4007/annals.2011.174.1.3},
       URL = {https://doi.org/10.4007/annals.2011.174.1.3},

Thanks in advance.

PD. I guess the problem may be in the \nocite command for the first bibliography but I don't know how to solve it.


Please see that the packages in \usepackage{ae,aecompl,aeguill} are outdated. Please do not use them!

After compiling your given code with

pdflatex mwe.tex

you have with multibib to run in your case two times bibtex:

bibtex mwe.aux
bibtex dk.aux

because the code


creates a second bib file dk.bib you need to run with bibtex ...


pdflatex mwe.tex

twice and see the following resulting bibliographies:

enter image description here

Because I did not change your code I omitted to include it here ...

  • Thanks. it would never have occurred to me to do that. By the way, is there an alternative for \usepackage{ae,aecompl,aeguill}? – Dog_69 Dec 3 '18 at 20:08
