If you're using the natbib or biblatex packages for typesetting the
bibliography, you can use the \nocite macro.

Writing \nocite{key} will include the bibliography entry associated
with key in the bibliography of your document but won't print any
in-text citation.  Writing \nocite{*} will include all the
bibliography entries from the current database in your bibliography.
