How can one change the section title that \begin{thebibliography} ...
\end{thebibliography} produces from "References" to "Bibliography" when
using the article class?

Redefine the \bibliographyname macro to "Bibliography":
\renewcommand{\bibliographyname}{Bibliography}. If you are using
\bibliographyname}{Bibliography}.

In any event, it may be a good thing for you to read the Babel
documentation to see how to do redefine other strings for your
particular language.

Good luck,

Luis.
