When printing the bibliographic entries, I want to print extra information together with the year at the LHS. Basically, this information is avaiable as a field info in the bibliographic entry. This info is to be printed below year at the LHS.

When I used tabular, an extra line is created, thus making it not so nice looking. Also for whatever reason info is not printed at all.

Additionally, I'd appreciate if you can remove the year from the RHS (as it is now redundant).


\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[backend=biber,maxbibnames=99,defernumbers=true,sorting=ydnt,giveninits=true,]{biblatex}

\begin{filecontents*}{myreferences.bib}
@article{sponge1,
author = {Sponge Bob Squrepants},
year = {2000},
title = {No Title},
journal = {Some awesome journal},
info = {high}
}

@article{sponge2,
author = {Sponge Bob Squrepants and
Patrick Star},
year = {2001},
title = {No Title Again},
journal = {Some awesome journal},
info = {low}
}

\end{filecontents*}

\defbibenvironment{bibliography}
{\list
{\printfield{year}}
%%%%%%% Spread it into two lines to print info in the following line, something like
%{\begin{tabular}[c]{@{}c@{}} \printfield{year} \\ \printfield{info} \end{tabular}}
{\setlength{\labelwidth}{2em}%
\setlength{\leftmargin}{\labelwidth}%
\setlength{\labelsep}{\biblabelsep}%
\setlength{\itemsep}{\bibitemsep}%
\setlength{\parsep}{\bibparsep}}%
\renewcommand*{\makelabel}[1]{##1\hss}}
{\endlist}
{\item}

\begin{document}

\nocite{*}\printbibliography

\end{document}

A lot of questions at once, let's try to go through them:

- a quick hack to use a multiline label: you can hide the height of it with the \smash{} macro and then use a minipage to make the top align to your bib entry

(caveat: the layout might be off for very short bib entries that only have one line on the right. As a quick hack, add note = {\newline\mbox{}\nopunct} to these entries).

- for removing the year, you can redefine the date and issue+date date macros. This should take care of the year for most entry types. For online entries, I left the date seen in it because this contains extra information like the day.

- Instead of adding new fields types like info, it is easier to use one of the predefined ones for the user to use, like usera. To be able to use info in your .bib file you can map it to one of the existing fields.


\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[backend=biber,maxbibnames=99,defernumbers=true,sorting=ydnt,giveninits=true,]{biblatex}

\begin{filecontents*}[overwrite]{myreferences.bib}
@article{sponge1,

year = {2000},
title = {No Title},
journal = {Some awesome journal},
info = {high}
}

@article{sponge2,
author = {Sponge Bob Squrepants and
Patrick Star},
year = {2001},
title = {No Title Again},
journal = {Some awesome journal},
info = {low}
}

\end{filecontents*}
