I have a bibliography followed by some other sections yet the bibliography title appears on subsequent pages. How to close the bibliography section and page styling?


enter image description here

Preamble (not a mwe):

\usepackage{cfr-lm} %font mit kursiven caps

\DeclareUnicodeCharacter{FEFF}{} %to get rid of the BOM character warning when using pasted text from LibreOffice
    \babeltags{de = ngerman}
    \babeltags{en = english}


\usepackage{lipsum, bibentry}

\usepackage{tabu} %tabellen

\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames,svgnames,table]{xcolor} %http://www.december.com/html/spec/colorsvg.html

\qrset{link, height=1.3cm}

% Zeitstrahl:




% Bibliographie:

%-zusaetzliche Kommandos

  • As always on this site, please post a full minimal example instead of sniplet(s). This makes it a lot easier for others to help

  • Might be easier to remove the LITERATUR in a pdf editor then to create a mwe...

  • Definitely not! But it all depends on the document class and preamble you are using, none of which you share with us.

    Also note that others cannot run this "MWE" as it attempts to include stuff we do not have access to. Please make a standalone doc full doc. I looked at the class, it seems to be replacable by the the report class. Also remove everything not needed to give this issue. Basically we need a single doc that we can run without having to add anything.

    Your template is really old and unsupported: "Leider kann 5 Jahre nach Abschluss des Projektes kein Support für diese mehr angeboten werden" (and we are now at ten years after project termination). I can't test your example because it is not completely minimal, but does \defbibheading{bibintoc}[\bibname]{\chapter*{#1}\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{#1}} help?

1 Answer 1


After chatting with the OP, it turns out the biblatex version being used is from 2016, where the heading= would always add to the headers. This combined with the use of \pagestyle{myheadings} caused \bibname to be added to the headers giving the bibliography and all subsequent pages \bibname in the header.

I did have a TeXLive version on disk with the same biblatex version, and the following will solve the problem (the best solution, of course, is to upgrade, but again of course, never just before handing in an important assignment)

%  \markboth{\MakeUppercase{#1}}{\MakeUppercase{#1}}

This was just copied from biblatex_.def (from the twosided branch, thus the \chapter*), and the \markboth was outcommented)

    +1 Great minds think alike.

  • @moewe Since I normally don't use biblatex, I had to recreate the situation first. Did not occur to me to start by looking at the \defbibheading stuff.

    Well it's always easier to guess the solution if you were the one who changed the code between the version the OP uses and biblatex 3.10 ;-) (and caused a few complaints about the new behaviour here and there, though in this case I seem to have gotten it right).

    @moewe hehe, that is also why I can often solve memoir questions quite fast.

    Thanks. Already noted. We're hoping to release 3.11 soon, so hoped we didn't have to bother with that.
