Summary/Abstract: The dynamically changing area of the digital, including web, information interacts with the bibliographic universe, bringing new opportunities as well as new problems for both the bibliographers and the users. The article analyzes the following issues: 1) The aim of bibliography. Bibliographies serve utilitarian purposes, they allow, or at the very least facilitate, the access to relevant publications; they connect the information with its potential recipient. But bibliographies fulfil more tasks. They are treasuries of memory, images of a widely understood culture in a certain time and place; documents of archival value meant to be preserved for future generations. 2) Bibliography and library catalogue. The dangers of identifying bibliography as library catalogue. 3) The form of bibliography. The advantages and disadvantages of the paper (printed) and the digital forms. Full-text resource as the target standard of bibliographic services and an opportunity of computer-aided indexing. The possibilities and advantages of using Web 2.0 tools in bibliographies. 4) Searching tools. Arrangements and indexes.
