As explained here (or also here), package multibbl allows building multiple bibliographies by means of



and to get it works one has to run first latex with the main file and later bibtex oneb and bibtex twob before to run again latex with the main file. In TexWorks processing tools BibteX argument is $basename so it applies to the main tex file and not to the newbibliography names. Further, it is thus as it is integrated in the pdfLaTeX+MakeIndex+BibTeX tool. Therefore, one has to run bibtex commands by hand.

Is there some way to add a new processing tool specifying to it that bibtex has to apply to the newbibliography names?

I copy a MWE (as asked for in comments) from the first link above. Let the main TeX file be test.tex:





\bibliography{oneb}{one}{First bib}
\bibliography{twob}{two}{Second bib}


And let the bib files be one.bib:

  author =   {Author, O.},
  title =    {Title One},
  journal =  {One J.},
  year =     2010

and two.bib

  author =   {Author, Two},
  title =    {Book Two},
  publisher =    {Multi-publish},
  year =     2005

All in the same folder, and tentatively, also with other TeX and .bib files.

Thank you!

  • Would you please give a MWE for testing? If that package does things correctly latexmk might do the job out of the box. – Herb Schulz Nov 18 '19 at 16:00
  • Done. Just copied from the first link above. – iago Nov 19 '19 at 9:39
  • @iago we generally do not like going off site for MWEs, external links disappear over time thus making your question unusable for others who wee it in the future. That is why we always ask to have the MWE added directly to the question. – daleif Nov 19 '19 at 10:00

It looks like multibbl works fine with latexmk. I don't use TeXWorks but others should be able to let you know how to set latexmk processing up under TeXWorks. An alternative is to set up arara processing up and tell arara what you need to do (as special comments in your file.
