I'm using document class scrbook. I want to put my bibliography after appendix (in source this starts with \appendix), but in my toc that is visible when I open up the generated PDF file, it is a part of the appendix. Is there a way to make it the same level as appendix but not create a whole new part in the document (i.e. manipulate only the toc?). Thank you in advance!

One should distinguish between the Table of Contents and the bookmarks: the former is part of the printed document, the latter is a property of the PDF previewer. From what you say the problem seems to be with the bookmarks.

Add \usepackage{bookmark} after loading hyperref (it's one of the few packages that should be called so) and, just before the bibliography in your document, say

If you are already adding your bibliography, and just want it to appear separately in your table of contents, the following should work.

From the LaTeX wikibook, to add a section (in this case Bibliography),

\clearpage %Should be added directly above bibliography, if 1 sided
\cleardoublepage %If 2 sided, thanks to egreg
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter/section/subsection etc.}{Bibliography}
\bibliography{bibliography name} %Or other command to add bibliography

\cleardoublepage would be better (with \clearpage the page number might be off by one when twoside is used). – egreg Mar 19 '12 at 7:42
Thanks for the tip, have updated to reflect – jClark94 Mar 19 '12 at 8:21
Yes, this adds the part-level bibliography entry, but also a subentry bibliography because the bibliography creates its own TOC entry... – Eric Mar 19 '12 at 8:46
