A webliography (from web and the suffix -graphy, from Ancient Greek verb γράφω gráphō, "to write") is a list of websites that pertain to a given topic. A webography is much like a bibliography, but is limited to a collection of online resources rather than books and academic journals. Research has been conducted comparing them to traditional bibliographies.[1][2] In the early days of the internet, web link lists were important because search engines weren't as well-developed, and bookmarking links was essential in order to find a particular website again.[3]
