# Two-column bibliography in one-column document [duplicate]

I'd like to have a two-column bibliography in a one-column scrartcl. I'm using BibLaTeX with backend biber. To obtain a two-column table of contents where the header doesn't "fall" into the columns, I use the koma-script commands

\BeforeStartingTOC[toc]{\begin{multicols}{2}}
\AfterStartingTOC[toc]{\end{multicols}}


Is there something similar for the bibliography in BibLaTeX? Right now I'm using

\begin{multicols}{2}[\section*{References}]

• There is no built-in way to get a two-column bibliography in a single-column document. egreg's answer seems to be the most elegant solution (I had a look yesterday and could not find something better with \defbibenvironment or the like.) Of course you don't have to use a command, if you don't want to. I'm voting to close as a duplicate then, if that's all right with you. – moewe Nov 25 '18 at 16:37
