The following code causes the text References in the top left hand side of the slide. I've tried lots and lots of things but I don't seem to be able to get rid of the text. (Redefining \bibname doesn't work, and using the option title={} for the \printbibliography command also doesn't work.)

(Oddly enough, when I use the same code for the block with the beamer-poster package, using the option name={\hbox to 1mm{}} does get rid of the text. Other names don't....)

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Berlin}

\usepackage{biblatex}
\addbibresource{tiny}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
   Some citation~\cite{Knuth:1990}.
   \begin{block}{Bibliography}
      \printbibliography[name={}]
   \end{block}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

The following is the BibTeX file, which should be called tiny.bib.

@Book{Knuth:1990,
    author    = {Knuth, Donald E.},
    title     = {The {\TeX}book},
    keywords  = {latex},
    year      = {1990},
    isbn      = {0-201-13447-0},
    publisher = {Addison--Wesley},
}

With \addbibresource, one should not omit the file extension (normally, .bib). –  lockstep Jan 25 '12 at 16:21
    
@lockstep Thanks. I didn't know this. It has always worked for me. –  Marc van Dongen Jan 25 '12 at 16:43

In the optional argument of \printbibliography, replace name={} with heading=none.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Berlin}

\usepackage{biblatex}

\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@Book{Knuth:1990,
    author    = {Knuth, Donald E.},
    title     = {The {\TeX}book},
    keywords  = {latex},
    year      = {1990},
    isbn      = {0-201-13447-0},
    publisher = {Addison--Wesley},
}
\end{filecontents}

\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
   Some citation~\cite{Knuth:1990}.
   \begin{block}{Bibliography}
      \printbibliography[heading=none]
   \end{block}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

(Note: The filecontents package/environment makes life easier for potential answerers.)

Thanks for the answer and the comment about the filecontents package. –  Marc van Dongen Jan 25 '12 at 16:16

I spent lot of time to find out how to solve exactly this issue, when bibtex command \bibliography{biblio} is used (LyX produces this construct by default).

At the end this solution worked:

\renewcommand{\bibsection}{\subsubsection*{\bibname }}

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks `, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). –  doncherry May 17 '12 at 18:05
