# wrong header in bibliography (classicthesis)

I'm using classicthesis and have a problem with the header of my bibliography: instead of small caps I receive normalfont letters. I don't know how to make a reproducible MWE, because when I load a bibliography with

\begin{thebibliography}{99}
\bibitem{example}
\bibitem{example}
\bibitem{example}
\end{thebibliography}


the problem doesn't occur. And in the classicthesis-package itself, the bibliography is too short to show the problem (header starts at the second page).

So here's what I'm doing:

 \documentclass[ twoside,openright,titlepage,numbers=noenddot,headinclude,footinclude=true,
cleardoublepage=empty,
fontsize=11pt, ngerman,american]{scrbook}
\input{classicthesis-config}

\bibliography{bibliography} % change to your own bibliography
\renewcommand*{\bibname}{Bibliography}
\setbibpreamble{}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\part{Introduction}
\include{Chapters/test} % insert chapter with lots of citations

\manualmark
\markboth{\spacedlowsmallcaps{\bibname}}{\spacedlowsmallcaps{\bibname}} % work-around to have small caps also
\refstepcounter{dummy}
\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\vspace{\beforebibskip}} % to have the bib a bit from the rest in the toc
\printbibliography

\end{document}


I'm not sure if this is working... if not you might have an idea anyway what I can try

It seems you're using biblatex, so I removed the call to natbib from classicthesis-config.tex and added some commands to the preamble:

\documentclass[
twoside,
openright,
titlepage,
numbers=noenddot,
footinclude=true,
cleardoublepage=empty,
fontsize=11pt,
ngerman,
american,
]{scrbook}
\input{classicthesis-config}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage{biblatex}

\cleardoublepage\phantomsection
\manualmark
\markboth{\spacedlowsmallcaps{#1}}{\spacedlowsmallcaps{#1}}%
\chapter*{#1}%
}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\cleardoublepage
\part{Introduction}

% a dummy chapter just by way of example
\chapter{Test}

\nocite{*} % cite everything
\lipsum[1-30]

\end{document}


The key point is to define a proper bibheading with \defbibheading.

## Second page of the bibliography, showing the header

In general this can be done manually, it's useful for getting other lists into smallcaps too, these worked for me (don't forget to reactivate \automark):

\manualmark
\markboth{\spacedlowsmallcaps{\listfigurename}}{\spacedlowsmallcaps{\listfigurename}}

\listoffigures

\automark[section]{chapter}
\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\spacedlowsmallcaps{#1}}{\spacedlowsmallcaps{#1}}}
\renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\markright{\thesection\enspace\spacedlowsmallcaps{#1}}}


and

\manualmark
\markboth{\spacedlowsmallcaps{\bibname}}{\spacedlowsmallcaps{\bibname}} % work-around to have small caps also
\phantomsection
\refstepcounter{dummy}
\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\vspace{\beforebibskip}} % to have the bib a bit from the rest in the toc
