I am using the \printbibliography[title={Legal Documents}] command of biblatex with a biber backend in order to created several subchapters within my bibliography chapters. However, the output header/headertitle of the corresponding page is printed in uppercases, i.e. LEGAL DOCUMENTS, as can be seen here (picture from my MWE):

I am using the SV Mono Class 5.5 by Springer.

I presume the problem is either due to the template or due to the standard settings of biblatex/biber. What is the command to force \printbibliography to give the output in lowercase letters? How can I redefine it?

Working example follows; it is not as minimum as I wish for it to be, since I have to show you guys the second page of the bibliography and therefore created a bunch of dummy bibliography entries, as can be seen below.

A Working Example:

\documentclass[graybox,envcountchap,sectrefs]{svmono}
\usepackage{emptypage}
\usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex}
\bibliography{lit.bib}
\makeindex  
\begin{document}


\tableofcontents 

\mainmatter

Do

\chapter*{Bibliography}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Bibliography}
\chaptermark{Bibliography}

\defbibheading{bibliographysection}{%
  \section*{#1}%
  \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{#1}%
  \markboth{#1}{#1}%
}

\printbibliography[heading=bibliographysection,title={Legal Documents}]

The standard heading has \MakeUppercase.

  • Thanks a lot! Works for me so far. However, I used the "heading=bibintoc" command in order for the entry to show in my TOC. Any suggestion on how to also include this in your code, i.e. to get the best of both worlds ;) ? – kuuhkuuh Jun 10 '16 at 21:27

    @kuuhkuuh My impression, reading your code, is that you have several bibliography sections. So it would be wrong hard coding the \chapter* business in the heading for a particular bibliography section. – egreg Jun 10 '16 at 21:28
  • I use a \addcontentsline, \chapter* and \chaptermark to create a "Bibliography" chapter, which has several different bibliography sections, that I would like to also show up in my TOC. So far, my solution for this was using heading=bibintoc, which worked well thus far. – kuuhkuuh Jun 10 '16 at 21:33

    @kuuhkuuh So you also want the sections in the TOC? See the edit – egreg Jun 10 '16 at 21:34
  • Awesome, works very well! You are my hero. Thanks a lot. – kuuhkuuh Jun 10 '16 at 21:50

You can set a prenote - arbitrary text - to be used just after the heading has been set:

enter image description here

\defbibnote{legaldoc}{\markboth{Legal Documents}{Legal Documents}}
\printbibliography[title=Legal Documents,prenote=legaldoc]

The above legaldoc note overrides whatever other marks have been set.
