Answer

There are a number of tools provided by the library that will help you to find articles (both scholarly and popular/news based).  

The library's main discovery tool that searches a substantial portion of the resources that Bucknell subscribes to is the WorldCat Library Catalog

WorldCat allows you to search for a variety of resources at one time.  Specifically, WorldCat can search for articles and books (and more) simultaneously.
 
The library also subcribes to a large collection of subject-specific database that are the best places to search for articles if you know the subject/topic area that you want to search.  These databases are most easily accessed via Research by Subject.  Once within Research by Subject you can browse by subject to view the databases that pertain to that area of study.  Please note that links to WorldCat are also available to search throughout Research by Subject.  
 
An additional resource that will help you to find articles is Google Scholar.  For more information on what Google Scholar is and how it relates to library research, click here.
