Your question is kind of vague, so it's difficult to give a meaningful 
answer. Bibliographies in mkiv work; a few months ago, I finished a 
scholarly volume with a bibliography of 600 entries. If you have a 
precise question, you better provide a minimal example and show us what 
doesn't work (or what you couldn't achieve). If you have worked many 
hours, you must have something to show.
