The "thebibibliography" environment is actually a general list, whose
labels are set by the "\@biblabel" command. So to change this you will
have redefine this command. Note that since it contains the @ character,
you will have to enclose it within "\makeatletter...\makeatother"
commands. For example

\makeatletter
\renewcommand{\@biblabel}[1]{#1.}
\makeatother

*before* the "\begin{thebibliography}" will give you serial numbers
followed by periods in your bibliography.
