Jabref, like you, Rich.

The bib files are from different jobs/books.

Most of them are placed already in the lyx document. The sizes of the 
bib files are 2.2 and 5.4 MB.

I want to use only the one inserted by using the aux file (I use the 
.tar.gz file, which would include also the bib files, to share it with a 
colleague working on the book too).

To avoid trimming them (the first bib is trimmed)

I wanted to know, whether the references of the first bib are not partly 
replaced by the untrimmed of the second (trimmed means e.g. no 
abstracts, etc)
