# Using two bibliographies with and without backref

For my thesis, I would like to generate a smaller bibliography in the beginning that includes only my previous work that was adapted in the thesis, in addition to a (normal) bibliography. Some entries might appear in both bibliographies. This works rather well when using biblatex:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[backref=true, backend=biber]{biblatex}

\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@misc{A01,
author = {Author, A.},
year = {2001},
title = {Alpha Title},
keywords = {self}
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}

\chapter{First}
Some text \cite{A01}.

\end{document}


However, I would like to get rid of the backrefs in the first listing and re-enabling them for the second. Is this possible with biblatex?

This can be achieved by scoping one of the \printbibliopgraphy commands within a group and redefining the pageref bib macro to be empty in that group. Namelly:

\begingroup
\renewbibmacro{pageref}{}

for the first \printbibliography (the one enclosed by the group) and
for the second \printbibliography.
