Answer

The databases you choose to search largely depend upon the topic you are researching.  If you have no idea where to begin, it's a good idea to begin by searching the Worldcat library catalog.  This is a multidisciplinary database that contains a large number of items.

After that, consult the Research by Subject pages to find additional, subject-specific databases.  There is a Research by Subject guide for every subject taught at Bucknell, and they will lead you to relevant databases.

If you need additional help, contact the Reference Desk at 570.577.1462, or email refdesk@bucknell.edu.
