Im using a complex template to write my document. It is old and I'm having a problem. I have two separate reference list, "Internet References" and "Literature". The problem is that the references counter "[3]" on "internet References" always starts with number 3 and it should start from 1 "1". The template uses multibib package. My biblio files are: weblinks.bib and literature.bib (main file is literature.bib). I digged in all files of my project and can not find any counter that I can reset, so I assume that is some kind of "internal" counter.

Anyone knows how to reset that special counter?

In main file Diploma_Thesis.tex:

% For the two different reference lists ...
\newcites{weblink}{Internet References}
% the style of bibliography
% start a new page

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Internet References}

The result in Literature section on PDF:

  • Corentin: I would change but as I said it is a complex and old template (which use to write my Master Thesis) and it seems to me to be hard to do. If you can give me some hints I would be glad!

    Probably \usepackage[resetlabels]{multibib} is what you need.

The package multibib provides an option just for that:
