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:

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


  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha Title},
  keywords = {self}


\printbibliography[heading=bibintoc, keyword=self, title={Previously Published Work}]

Some text \cite{A01}.

\printbibliography[heading=bibintoc, title={References}]


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:

\printbibliography[heading=bibintoc, keyword=self, title={Previously Published Work}]

This produces

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

for the second \printbibliography.
