Using multibib, if I define a bibliography entitled "Primary literature" by using the following line:

\newcites{prim}{Primary Literature}

and then I write into the document block:

\nociteprim{ref1,ref2}
\bibliographystyleprim{apacite}
\bibliographyprim{publications}   % 'publications' is the name of a BibTeX file

I obtain the list of bib entries, e.g.:

Primary literature
entry1
entry2
....

How can I set a left margin to the sole entries, e.g.

Primary literature
      entry1
      entry2
      ....

After loading apacite and multibib, you could execute the commands

\setlength{\bibleftmargin}{0em}
\setlength{\bibindent}{2em}

to get the first line of every entry to be indented by 2em relative to any further lines. The amount of indentation of the remaining lines with respect to the left hand edge of the text block is governed by \bibleftmargin.

How to modify some of these parameters is explained in the manual of the apacite package.
