Hi everybody!

In Writer or Calc hit F4.
Right-click the existing Bibliography and choose "Edit Database".
You get a new window with a database document and with the connection
info in the status bar of that window. "Bibliography" stands for a dBase
directory with one file biblio.dbf in a certain directory.

By the way i have three file: biblio.dbf, biblio.dbt, biblio.odb. Which of
them i should save with corresponding writer document? (for transfer them
together to another computer for example)

There is nothing to be saved nor modified. This is just a prepared
database shipped with LibreOffice.
biblio.dbf contains the data. dbf files can be edited in hundreds of
database programs and spreadsheet applications.
biblio.odb is the database document which is connected to the biblio
directory with the biblio table.
This database document is registered under the name "Bibliography" so it
appears in the data source window.

I have never noticed the biblio.dbt file. Don't know what it is.

Before you can create any kind of database, you need to know clearly
what you are going to store in it. There is no magic wizard that
develops the right storage for you. You've got to do this entirely on
your own using the database of your choice. No, Base is not a database.
It is something to work with databases in the context of this office suite.

For bibliographic purposes there is also a cloud based database which can be used with LibreOffice.

I would simply use the existing one if it contains all the required
columns and it is very easy to ignore any columns you don't need.
Simply remove all rows from the biblio table, define a query with the
columns you actually want to user and enter your own data into the query.
Don't try to build a fully functional relational database from scratch
unless you have some basic knowledge about database design which is well
paid development work.
