I want to have multiple bibliographies within my CV (moderncv class) so I've been using multibib. The trouble is, multibib automatically places a bibliography title above each bibliography, which I do not always want.

At the beginning of my document I have:

\newcites{Jn,Cp,Pt}{{Journal Articles},{Conference Proceedings},{Patents}}

Then, when I have


I end up with patents twice, one from the section heading, and one from the bibliography title. I want to keep the section heading, so the bibliography title needs to go.

I've tried leaving the bibliography title out of the \newcites command, like this

\newcites{Jn,Cp,Pt}{{Journal Articles},{Conference Proceedings},{}}

But this just results in a big space between the section title and the first bibliography item.

I also tried


which was suggested here, but I still ended up with patents twice.

Any suggestions?


moderncv adjusts the bibliography environment to issue \subsection when multibib is loaded.

You should be able to correct this by saying


after \begin{document}

  • That did it! Thanks. I guess you have some experience with the moderncv package. – Ben Mar 6 '12 at 18:48

    @Ben Never used. :) But the issue was very clear when looking inside the class file. – egreg Mar 6 '12 at 18:53
