There are two ways that I've seen people including their bibliographies. The first is without including any package:

% Document:

And the second includes biblatex:

% Preamble:
% Document:

What exactly is the difference between these, and which is preferred in what situation?

\addbibresource is a biblatex-only command. The main (only?) difference to the traditional \bibliography command is that biblatex/biber do not exclusively work with .bib files but allow for other bibliographic formats. That also explains why \addbibresource insists on the file suffix.
