Finding a sourceEdit

Tips for finding a source yourself
  • Send a request to the author(s) of research papers for a copy of their paper by email
  • Check on Google Books, or your local library or national library may be able to obtain it through an interlibrary loan or subscription
  • Search Google Scholar for archived copies of journals in institutional repositories
  • Check whether your alma mater's library offers electronic document delivery services for alumni—many do, for a small fee

Note that sites like LibGen and Sci-Hub offer direct, free access to a very large range of publications, but there are legal questions around their use and neither the Wikimedia Foundation nor the Wikipedia community endorses them.

Making a request
  • A request may be an open question or you may ask for a specific journal, article or work
  • All kinds of sources are possible here: newspapers, magazine article, databases, encyclopedias, court decisions, laws, books, etc.
  • We cannot perform full book scans requests due to copyright
  • You may contact research helpers directly or make a request on this page
  • To receive email without disclosing your email address publicly, configure your email in Special:Preferences
  • Provide as much detail as possible: a full citation with author, title, publisher, and date or identifiers like DOI, ISBN ISSN, PMID, etc.
  • Once a request has been fulfilled add the {{Resolved}} template.
  • Filled requests are archived.
  • Requests unfilled after three months will be archived

Fulfilling a requestEdit

  • Anyone may offer advice and fulfill requests.
  • Indicate which part or parts of the request is being handled so others do not duplicate your work.
  • Notify (mention) the requester using {{ping|REQUESTER_USERNAME}}
  • You can point to a pre-existing electronic document by giving its URL ( http://... ). You can share scans of pages or documents using a file-sharing service, provided it is legal, or by emailing the content to the requester.
  • You can email a link or plain text to a requester using the Special:EmailUser feature but for attachments, you need to ask them to mail you first so you can reply.

Copyright tips:

  • Respect copyrights and terms of services of any online services you use.
  • Share content in a limited manner that is targeted at as few individuals as possible to achieve a specific improvement on Wikipedia. All content is shared under a presumed non-commercial, educational, fair use purpose in order to conduct research about topics on Wikipedia and/or to improve Wikipedia content.
  • Share copies privately rather than with a publicly accessible link whenever possible. Copyrighted articles from print publications or copies obtained through online databases should not be uploaded for unrestricted distribution via open websites. Preferably, do not share login access codes for entire websites; rather, share only an individual copy of a resource.
  • Remember that you take on the individual risk when sharing content, and act in a way that is comfortable and safe for you. Individual editors are solely responsible for sharing copyrighted content and assume all legal risks.

March 2018Edit

Official Verbatim Report of the Parliamentary Debates of the Zambian National AssemblyEdit

A bit of a tricky one this. I am using the Official Verbatim Reports from debates in the Zambian National Assembly to compile a list of MPs in Zambia since independence (see 1964–68 and 1969–73, which are now complete) and the ministerial positions held by said MPs so that I can complete the lists of ministers and create decent articles on every MP and minister (e.g. Sikota Wina).

Unfortunately there are several volumes that I have been unable to access via the British Library but some appear to be on Google Books, apparently in blocks of two (based on searches like this, it appears that there are two listings in each set – both of which I would like if possible). In many cases it is not clear what the page numbers are. However, at the start of every report there is a title page, followed by a list of ministers and then a list of constituency MPs. This is what I am ultimately after in order to get a full record of MPs and ministers.

The volumes I have not been able to access are:

  • mid-late 1973 (mid-1973 is here, showing a double listing (you may have to click on the search button again to make it appear)). I have the first volume of 1973 (January to March)
  • 1974 (mid-1974 here, another double listing)
  • 1975 (not searchable)
  • 1976 (mid-1976 here, another double listing)
  • 1977 – not on Google Books?
  • 1978 (here)
  • 1979 – not on Google Books?

If I can access these, then I can ensure that List of members of the National Assembly of Zambia (1973–78) and List of members of the National Assembly of Zambia (1978–83) are complete (I suspect they are currently missing any MPs elected in by-elections or replacement nominee MPs).

Hope that all makes sense. Cheers, Number 57 22:33, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Number 57, of the works that you have, do any indicate what the copyright status is? Some countries (but undoubtedly not all) would release such works into the public domain, and if that were the case here, Google Books might allow full view. --Usernameunique (talk) 05:27, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
@Usernameunique: Unfortunately I only took photos of the pages I needed, which don't contain the copyright detail... If it's helpful, I can get another edition out from the library to check, but I am currently overseas and won't be able to access the library until early May. Number 57 11:13, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
Number 57 & Usernameunique, section 12.(2) of the Zambian Copyright and Performance Rights Act says government copyrights last for fifty years after publication. It's possible that the reports were and are public domain, but where the copyright law itself is copyrighted, it seems unlikely. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 16:24, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
I guess I an solve! Ordered it, but unsure if I get it. Wait for about two weeks.--Antemister (talk) 10:06, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
Number 57 Got two volumes, I think (vol. 35) and a thin (vol. 36), both from 1974, they contain a list of the MPs, will copy them. Do you need additional lists exept the one for the 1978-1983 aparliament?--Antemister (talk) 15:50, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
@Antemister: Apologies, I didn't get this ping for some reason. In terms of what I'm still missing (aside from the ones listed above from 1975–1978)):
  • 1978–1983 parliament – missing the entire first session (1979). Nothing between March and November 1982. Missing the first report from the fifth session (early 1983). Nothing after July 1983, but not sure if it was in session.
  • 1983–1988 parliament – possibly missing one between March 1984 and January 1985 (not sure if the NA was in session). I also have nothing between March 1985 and August 1986, and nothing after August 1986.
  • 1988–1991 parliament – I have nothing except June–August 1991 (third session resumed)
  • 1991–1996 parliament – missing the initial report from the second session (early 1993 I think) and I have nothing after August 1994.
Hope that all makes sense? Number 57 21:49, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Number 57, for the 1980s, the holdings become more incomplete: UB Bayreuth has 59.1982; 64.1983 - 65.1984; 67.1985; 71.1986; 74.1987 according to ZDB. Should I order, like before, the list of MPs?--Antemister (talk) 07:27, 6 June 2018 (UTC) Number 57, apparently I have access to 1972-1978, but I'm about to leave town for an extended period and won't be able to visit that library until about mid-September. Feel free to contact me then. Zerotalk 02:35, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

EAR magazine reviewEdit

I'm looking for a review for Who Needs Enemies? (album), which appears to start on page xii in this book:

  • Ear, Volumes 9-10. New Wilderness Foundation. 1984. pp. xii–. ISSN 0893-9500. LCCN 88657196.

The review was originally published in EAR Magazine, but I can't tell from the Google snippet which issue it comes from. If anyone has access to the magazine, that would also help. Thanks. —Bruce1eetalk 15:15, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

Bruce1ee, if you email Google Books ("report an issue" at bottom of GBooks page), they can tell you what issue it is in. Usually doesn't take too long. --Usernameunique (talk) 19:46, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll try that. Knowing the issue number may help find this review. —Bruce1eetalk 22:28, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
It's been a month now since I sent my query to Google ... and nothing. They did say that if they can't help, they won't respond, so I must assume that their silence means they can't help. —Bruce1eetalk 06:33, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Bruce1ee, perhaps it went to your spam? Emailed them a few hours ago, and just got this response: “Thank you for reaching out to the Google Books team. The review for "Who Needs Enemies?" can be found in Ear: Magazine of New Music Volume 9, Issue Number 4. This volume was printed in March 1985 and the specific review can be found on page 25.” —Usernameunique (talk) 20:27, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
Usernameunique, thank you very much, that's very helpful – hopefully this will assist finding the review. I don't know why I got nothing from Google, and I did check my spam folder. Just one query: does "March 1985 ... page 25" refer to vol. 9, issue 4 of the magazine the review originally appeared in, or does it refer to the page number of the book containing all the vol. 9-10 issues? "March 1985" is puzzling because the Google Book link above says it was published in 1984. But regardless, thank you for your efforts. —Bruce1eetalk 21:06, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
No problem, Bruce1ee. It means page 25 of the March 1985 issue, which is volume 9, issue 4. Lots of libraries bind runs of magazines together (here, volumes 9 and 10), and Google Books retains such cataloging despite it being both confusing and somewhat arbitrary. 1984 probably refers to the year of the first issue included in the particular library’s bound set. —Usernameunique (talk) 21:17, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
@Usernameunique: thanks, that makes sense. And I think you're right about what 1984 refers to. —Bruce1eetalk 22:16, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

Here is the issue the review appeared in:

I see that The New York Public Library has Ear magazine archives from 1962-1992 in its Archives & Manuscripts section. They may have the above issue. —Bruce1eetalk 09:22, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

The magazine is in a lot of big American and Canadian libraries, according to WorldCat. The NYPL collection is for the production files of the magazine. RoseCherry64 (talk) 23:57, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
@RoseCherry64: Thanks for the correction, and for the update re the other libraries. —Bruce1eetalk 06:29, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

July 2018Edit


I am not sure the exact pages but possibly from pages 60-85. Either version is fine. The pages I need corresponds to the genealogy of Abigail Maheha and her descendants by Kamehameha V. Look for any mentions of Keano or Keanolani. A footnote from another source indicates page 78 but I wanted to be sure hence the requested page range. If there is a table of content or index, would you find scanning that and emailing as well. Thanks, KAVEBEAR (talk) 01:34, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

@SoWhy: Email me for Art of Warcraft. There's little if anything useful there. It's unabashedly fanboy, with lots of pictures and little text. What text there is tends to be basic plot of the series that I'm sure you have better sources for, or "critical commentary" in the vein of (I'm paraphrasing, it's actually worse) "The 3D rendering is awesome. The amazingly talented team at Blizzard really brings the units to life."

Głos no. 4 (published 2010)Edit

  Moved from Wikipedia:Reference desk/Entertainment § Seeking accessible copy of Głos no. 4 published 2010: This is a more appropriate place for the discussion.
  • "[Unknown title]". Głos. No. 4. 2010. p. 6–7.

As the section title says, I am specifically looking for the fourth issue of Głos, which was published in 2010. I have a source lead for a claim that has remained largely unsupported in a Wikipedia BLP for years, which I found via WikiBlaming some inserted text to discover the original purported source stated in December 2012. According to that lead, it's in pages 6–7 of that magazine issue, the magazine allegedly being this one. If anyone can find a copy of it, preferably but not necessarily a digital one I can directly access (scans are fine), that would be great. All my searching attempts have yielded such little evidence that I even question the existence of this purported source. Hopefully, someone who is fluent enough in Polish can assist me further here.

Colonial Families of America, Volume 11Edit

  • Colonial Families of America, Volume 11 [5]

I don’t know the page numbers but one page contains the passage: “Mary Pitman married, in 1883, Jack Ailau, a newspaper man. who died in 1893. She died, February 12, 1905, in...” I need all the pages relating to the Pitman family including any ancestors or descendants of Benjamin Pitman (Hawaii). Thanks, KAVEBEAR (talk) 05:11, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

KAVEBEAR, please provide more information on that volume. If you look at, it says the work "Colonial families of the United States of America" has 7 volumes. seems to make a similar suggestion ("This collection consists of the entire seven volume set of Colonial Families of the United States of America" ...). Perhaps it was continued at some point, but are you sure it was under what name? I couldn't find more information on a vol. 11. Maybe you can dig something up in the Library of Congress catalogue. — Pajz (talk) 21:30, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

  Doing... #2, #3, — Pajz (talk) 05:50, 27 September 2018 (UTC)
Vmavanti, as to #3, the volume has no annual index, and the individual issues, too, do not include a detailed table of contents (e.g., they don't mention reviews). Unfortunately, I do not have the time to search the entire volume. Regarding #2, there is a sentence in an untitled, as far as I can see, editorial section in the June issue, page 24, that says: "Teddy Norman's crooning on the icky “One Love" is pure dross, but thrush Chris Adams’ saucy innocence on “I’m a Big Girl Now’ (2 parts) is winning; she and McKinley address a tragic postwar shortage in “Have You Got Any Gum Chum?”". As best as I can tell, no other page 24 of any 1988 issue contains any mention of the song title. I'm not sure what the point of this reference is anyway; the fact that "Have Ya Got Any Gum, Chum?" comes from the phrase "Got Any Gum, Chum?" appears entirely trivial and the less obvious remainder of the sentence is already sourced. — Pajz (talk) 15:04, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

The Namasudras of Bengal via HathiTrustEdit

Not sure what makes you think this is available on HathiTrust. They have digitized it, yes, but HathiTrust does not usually provide fulltext access to in-copyright works (unless the rightsholder explicitely agreed); Worldcat does not distinguish between fulltext/limited access. — Pajz (talk) 19:58, 27 September 2018 (UTC)
AFAIK, students of a certain set of universities can access the full books, even when it is unavailable for the broader populace.WBGconverse 04:43, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
They can't access full books of all material (been there), hence my question. They can access some of the material if it is considered out-of-print and meets some additional criteria. I infer from your response that you don't know if this book qualifies. Well, I suppose you can wait for someone from a partner institution to check the status of this particular book. It remains doubtful if someone can legally provide you with the entire book, though. There's no real reason why the restriction "We cannot perform full book scans requests due to copyright" wouldn't apply here; the rightsholder didn't make the material available, so the (U.S.) user would have to abide by the requirements of the fair use defense. — Pajz (talk) 06:21, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
Asked for help at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Michigan. There's a copy in the UMich library.LeadSongDog come howl! 14:40, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
LeadSongDog, thanks, though I suppose the problem is not so much finding someone with access to a copy of the book as it is scanning the entire volume of 102 pages (Winged Blades of Godric seems to request the entire volume). That would obviously be at odds with the general rule here that "[w]e cannot perform full book scans requests due to copyright". — Pajz (talk) 06:00, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
For most article development, simply scanning the contents and index is half the battle. Editors such as WBG can assess those and request a second scan of a few useful pages for material of particular interest. LeadSongDog come howl! 14:35, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
LeadSongDog, well, if he wants that, he can request it (I wouldn't mind supplying it). I just meant to point out a practical issue with the request as it stands. — Pajz (talk) 19:44, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Proceedings of the International Association of Engineering Geology re the 1556 Shaanxi earthquake.Edit

Does anyone have access to the Proceedings of the 5th International Congress of the International Association of Engineering Geology? It has been cited in various places (including our own 1556 Shaanxi earthquake) for the 1556 Shaanxi (Huaxian) earthquake having 830,000 fatalities, but I began to doubt, and am unable to verify. Item has an ISBN of 90-6191-664-X. It might be available at the IAEG home page, but only to members.

Alternately, is there anyone interested in researching some articles in Chinese? ♦ J. Johnson (JJ) (talk) 00:40, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

For anyone else working on this request, I think it might be in the 6th conference proceedings, not the 5th. The reference in 1556 Shaanxi earthquake cites the proceedings from 1990, which would be the 6th conference. The 5th was in 1986. I checked the table of contents for all three volumes of the 5th just in case, and I couldn't find anything about Shaanxi. Unfortunately, these are the only proceedings I have access to. Mcampany (talk) 04:01, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
I have a source that states the 5th congress, volume 4, with 1990 when the Proceedings were published of the Congress held October 1986 in Buenos Aires. Also, ISBN 90-6191-664-X may be invalid; see also ISBN 978-906191664-2. ♦ J. Johnson (JJ) (talk) 22:16, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

@Spinningspark: The 1999 edition of this book is available online here. I don't know if you must have the 2013 edition. —Bruce1eetalk 13:31, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
"Reprinted" generally means that there haven't been any changes (just begs the question "compared to what?"). Not sure why you are specifically requesting a rather obscure reprint (the ISBN has no Worldcat hit whatsoever). It appears that the original 1999 edition (which does not seem to have an ISBN) was, in some shape or form, turned into volume 1 ("The Space Shuttle decision, 1965 - 1972") of the series "History of the space shuttle", edited also by Mr. Heppenheimer. The ISBN of that volume is ISBN 1-588-34014-7 (table of contents). There could be changes between these two editions, but I doubt it. If you compare the table of contents of the 2002 edition with the one from the 1999 one that Bruce linked to, they seem to match perfectly. Since the Library of Congress does not seem to have any other edition in their catalogue, it hence appears likely to me that has what you are looking for. — Pajz (talk) 13:48, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I have no reason to think the 2013 reprint is any different, I only mentioned it because I thought it would be easier to find in libraries. I'm not seeing "Space Launcher System" in the archive link provided, at least, not by that name. I suspect I have been pointed to the wrong book. If anyone can find a Heppenheimer book discussing SLS I would be interested. Otherwise, please close this thread. SpinningSpark 15:08, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
