The Quest logo -- a capital letter Q wearing a wizard's hatUMW subscribes to more than 200 different databases, each of which contains hundreds of thousands of articles. To find articles, you can either search one database at a time, or you can use a tool called Quest to search many databases at the same time.

In Quest, you can limit your search to items in a particular language by using the language limiter on the Quest Advanced Search page.
