Is it somehow possible to show the numbers ob those pages in the bibliography, where a certain reference was used? This could be comparable to the glossary.

For example I used \cite{me2012} on pages 1 , 3 and 12, then the reference should show:

me (2012). unimportant paper, no name journal, 1(1):1-15; cited on: 1, 3, 12


me (2012). unimportant paper, no name journal, 1(1):1-15; 1, 3, 12

instead of

me (2012). unimportant paper, no name journal, 1(1):1-15

So you can use:
