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.

New Zealand sources for Muriel Grace WiddowsonEdit

Hello. I'm looking for sources to improve my article on Muriel Grace Widdowson:

  • "Retirements". New Zealand Nursing Journal. 46 (1): 28. February 1953. ISSN 0028-8535. 
  • "Obit". The Press. Christchurch, N.Z. 4 August 1989. p. 5. ISSN 0113-9762.

@Usernameunique: Wow. Thanks a bunch ;) --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:10, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Found this one that may/may not be useful. It's about a stained glass window that Widdowson unvieled at a hospital where she worked at after her retirement:

The stain glassed window isn't as important, but the third one I'll leave open. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:03, 28 December 2017 (UTC)
I'm trying to get the third article. If I can, then I'll file a second request for the article you struck, since the source is the same. ~ Rob13Talk 17:38, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
Okay. Take as long as you need as this request of mines isn't a priority. Thanks! --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 21:06, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Hawaiian Music and Musicians: An Illustrated HistoryEdit

This may be easier if it was done via a physical checking out and scanning rather than requesting pages to be scanned since I have no idea the specific page numbers. I need both editions since the later edition adds recent research. Please send me both editions' complete index and table of content for future inquires, and the pages for Lena Machado and the Ellis brothers: John and William. Please send User:Maile66 as well. Thanks so much.


--KAVEBEAR (talk) 17:51, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

@KAVEBEAR: I can get the Illustrated History at the Hennepin County Library, but they don't have the later edition. I can stop by tomorrow evening. = paul2520 (talk) 02:20, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
@KAVEBEAR and Maile66: I borrowed a copy of the first book. Library doesn't have the updated edition. Hoping to get to the scans tonight. Should I use the "email user" feature when I get around to it? = paul2520 (talk) 12:56, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
Paul2520 I'm OK with it being email. — Maile (talk) 19:10, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
@KAVEBEAR and Maile66: I emailed you both. I forgot to mention, there's also a 17-page annotated bibliography which looks really nice. = paul2520 (talk) 17:13, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks!--KAVEBEAR (talk) 19:20, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Got it! Thanks! — Maile (talk) 19:25, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
@KAVEBEAR and Maile66: FYI, I returned the first book this morning. I was thinking, libraries often take suggestions of items to purchase. Though the process takes time, it might be a good idea if you anticipate using these books in the future. = paul2520 (talk) 19:10, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for the suggestion, and for doing all this work for us. — Maile (talk) 19:16, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
Attempting via ILL. ~ Rob13Talk 21:33, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
Not sure if BU Rob13 is still working on this (I believe not, based on what he wrote in the section below), but, at any rate, KAVEBEAR, it appears that the book can be borrowed for free through Internet Archive/Open Library. See https://archive.org/details/hawaiianmusicmus00kana. You have to create a free account first if you do not have one already. Once you're signed in, a blue "Borrow This Book" is shown ("This book can be borrowed for 14 days"). — Pajz (talk) 05:59, 4 April 2018 (UTC) Sorry, mixed up the two. #2 doesn't seem to be widely available, with only one holding library in Europe, according to Worldcat. This being, of course, unacceptable to any bibliophile, I suggested to one of the libraries around here to acquire it. They've ordered the book yesterday, so if either of you, KAVEBEAR or Maile66, is still interested in this work, I will likely be able to fulfill the request in a few (in my experience: 2-3) weeks. If, in the meantime, you have obtained the desired material some other way, or for other reasons are no longer interested in it, I'd ask you to kindly mark this (somewhat ancient) request here as {{resolved}}, just to avoid unnecessary work on my own part or on the part of someone else who might see this request and be willing to provide you with the material faster. Thanks, — Pajz (talk) 21:44, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

National Library of Australia clippingsEdit

Hello. I'm looking for this record from the National Library of Australia:

  • Biographical cuttings on Anna Bown, winner of the 1994 Young Australian of the Year, containing one or more cuttings from newspapers or journals. Bib ID 1804327

This is to help expand my article on Anna Johnston (doctor) as Anna Bown is her birthname. Thanks! --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 04:33, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Tehree Gordon pages in Jirrahlinga bookEdit

Hello. I am looking for any pages about Tehree Gordon in this book:

  • Levett, Robin (2002). Jirrahlinga: The Story of an Australian Wildlife Refuge, Its Creator, Its Carers, and Its Inmates. Hudson Publishing. ISBN 9780949873859. OCLC 56122110. 

I am looking primarily for her early life, education and career but any pages that mentions her would be helpful. Thanks! --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 04:30, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

Added an OCLC link. Looks like it is well represented in Australian libraries, along with holdings in Cambridge, New Zealand, Stockholm, and Washington, D.C.. --Usernameunique (talk) 05:04, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

English Shonen JumpEdit

To celebrate the the 10th anniversary of the manga series Naruto, Viz Media's own English Shonen Jump made a poll with all of the series' characters (I guess it must be a 2009 issue then). However, I have no idea what issue is that magazine. Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 13:16, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

@Tintor2: Are you just asking to know what issue it is, or do you want the results of the poll? Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 20:48, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
@Emir of Wikipedia: The issue and probably pages. I tried searching for some 2009 issues from Amazon but there were a lot of them with Naruto on the cover with no mention of the series' 10th anniversary (which the issue celebrated with).Tintor2 (talk) 21:06, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
I would suggest asking at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Anime and manga. --Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 21:33, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
Already did some months ago but got nothing Emir of Wikipedia.Tintor2 (talk) 00:53, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
@Tintor2: Hmm. I see there you mentioned the Naruto Wikia, where this poll was mentioned with this edit on May 27 2010, this edit does not specify that the poll is from the English Shonen Jump but that was added with this later edit. Unfortunately this means that it might not be the English Shonen Jump. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 19:02, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
@Tintor2: You removed the posting at the A&M WikiProject saying you were wrong about that poll. Does that mean you are withdrawing this request or that you looking for the Japanese Shonen Jump? --Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 18:24, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
@Emir of Wikipedia: There are far too many Japanese Shonen Jump issues per year in contrast to English Shonen Jump so I don't think anybody knows the issue that celebrated the anniversary. Also, in contrast to regular polls, it wasn't collected in a manga volume or guidebook.Tintor2 (talk) 18:31, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Juno Award for Artist of the Year nominees 1970-73Edit

Hello. I'm look for the nominees for the Juno Award for Artist of the Year from 1970-73 for both Best Male and Female Vocalists. The award was named Top Male/Female Vocalist from 1970-71 and Male/Female Vocalist of the Year from 1972-73. Problem is, the Junos website does not have the nominees for these years and it's shown in the Wikipedia article as missing. I copied the 1971 nominees were from Juno Awards of 1971 but I'm not sure if they're right. I've been searching in databases and Google searching but coming up dry. If anyone could provide the names for Juno Award for Artist of the Year from 1970-73 for both Best Male and Female Vocalists, I'd be grateful to finally fill in this gap. Thanks! --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 22:18, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

@MrLinkinPark333: The best chance of finding the nominees may be to search RPM, the Toronto magazine that organized the awards. As far as I know it hasn't been digitized, and is only available at four WorldCat libraries: Library and Archives Canada, Université du Québec à Montréal, New York Public Library, and Chicago Public Library (OCLC 32503235).
On a side note, in my searches I found that Billboard has a list of RPM Award winners (the precursor to The Gold Leaf and Juno Awards) that could be used to expand RPM (magazine) with the 1967-1969 winners, if anyone is so inclined. [2] (pages 46 and 48 [76 and 78 in the pdf]). --Worldbruce (talk) 18:09, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
Yeah I was working on RPM awards before cause I stumbled upon that Billboard article as well but stopped for awhile. I can wait for the nominees as I'm nowhere near those libraries. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 21:26, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Year Book and Guide of the Rhodesias and Nyasaland 1944Edit

I'm after pages 594 and 595 of this book in order to confirm whether Godfrey Pelletier was a Legislative Council member and to get a full biography for him (possibly to start an article). Cheers, Number 57 00:08, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Number 57, not trivial to find, many major libraries have significant gaps in their holdings of this yearbook. Bellezzasolo listed himself under Wikipedia:WikiProject Resource Exchange/Shared Resources#Public as potentially having access to the Bodleian Library, which has the volume requested here, http://solo.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/OXVU1:LSCOP_OX:oxfaleph012663436. (One might have to check both volumes 1943/44 and 1944/45 as it is not clear from the information supplied here which one it is.) Maybe he has a chance to take a look and possibly provide a scan of these two pages? — Pajz (talk) 16:16, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
@Pajz and Number 57: Looks doable. I'm still away from uni, but it's only another 2 weeks. They're stored offsite, so it's a question of timing my request for them, but certainly can be done (and since the request is Feb, I don't think another 2 weeks will be much of an issue). Bellezzasolo Discuss 16:51, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
I've placed a hold request. Bellezzasolo Discuss 16:56, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
@Number 57:   Sent. Bellezzasolo Discuss 14:32, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
@Bellezzasolo: Thanks - unfortunately I'm now in a country where my email account is blocked, but will be home in a week so will pick it up then. Cheers, Number 57 16:41, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
@Number 57: Would that be China, by any chance? Enjoy your trip anyway! Bellezzasolo Discuss 16:50, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
@Bellezzasolo: Yep; no Twitter, WhatsApp or Facebook. No idea why Wikipedia is allowed (although the Chinese one is blocked). Number 57 17:03, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

Can I get help with this material from the Harvard Business Review

---Masssly (talk) 11:05, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

This? And for what article? My understanding is that this proprietary doc isn't something interlibrary loan can fulfill. Even your link to HOLLIS—is it indeed in that ProQuest link? Otherwise looks like it's à la carte from HBS. czar 11:55, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

@AJona1992: I have a subscription to Time's digital archive, but it's the US edition, not the South Pacific. April 17, 1995 (US issue #16) has nothing. But April 10, 1995 (US issue #15) does have "Death of a Rising Star", which is a Selena obituary. That's all I can find in the US archives. I don't know if you're interested in that article. —Bruce1eetalk 07:59, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

I have a Newspapers.com subscription but the 'Daily Mail' is not part of their database. If you need other sources, let me know. Best Regards, Barbara    03:36, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Barbara, thank you for checking. SarahSV (talk) 19:50, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

SlimVirgin, just checking that you got it so we can mark this as {{resolved}}. --Usernameunique (talk) 06:09, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Usernameunique, I'm sorry to be so slow to reply to this. Thank you for sending that article, but it doesn't look like the right one. It doesn't have the byline, and it uses the term suffragette as though it's been used before, not as though it's the article coining the term. The issue is that lots of secondary sources attribute the term suffragette to the Daily Mail, and specifically to an article by Charles E. Hands (one source says this) from 10 January 1906. They say that the Mail made up the term to minimize what the women were doing (i.e. they were not real suffragists, but mini or fake versions, as in kitchen/kitchenette). But I've never seen anyone quote the Mail article, so I would like to try to find it. SarahSV (talk) 01:47, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

SarahSV, I had no luck with the archives I checked. Gale has a Daily Mail archive; perhaps someone here has access to it. (Unfortunately, access to Gale doesn't necessarily include this particular product.) BlackcurrantTea (talk) 13:14, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Daily MirrorEdit

I'm looking for a Daily Mirror article from either 25 or 26 October 1906, which discusses the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS) and the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), also known as the suffragettes. I don't have a page number or headline, but I believe it contains the words "noisy methods", and it's about a meeting of the NUWSS on 24 October 1906, attended by 2,000 women, at which the suffragettes were reportedly applauded. It's for Mud March (suffragists). Many thanks, SarahSV (talk) 21:02, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Link, Volume 4, Issues 26-51Edit

In this publication (which I'm not sure is a magazine, journal or a newspaper), page 40 covers a good amount of info on Nenjil Or Aalayam. I'd like that page, and if the info continues on page 41, I'd like that too. The last time I requested this, it went unnoticed and the request was archived. I hope someone notices it this time. --Kailash29792 (talk) 11:01, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Kailash29792, well, if a request doesn't get fulfilled, that doesn't necessarily mean it "went unnoticed", it may just mean that no one has access or no one wants to process it ... Also, you should take into account that requests like this one are almost impossible to fulfill unless you have the entire volume in front of you. We know very little about the actual location of that page since magazines typically don't have continous page numbers (at least not in Europe/the U.S.), so if you say it's on "page 40", that still begs the question: of what issue? — Pajz (talk) 18:29, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
Kailash29792, at the bottom of the Google Books page is a link that says "Report an issue." Clicking on that, you have a number of options which let you email Google Books with questions. They can likely fill in some of the bibliographic information for you even if they can't give you the scans. Many thanks to MrLinkinPark333 for pointing this out; it's been hugely useful, and they've made several previously restricted out of copyright books available for full view as a result. --Usernameunique (talk) 02:17, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
From the "Bibliographic information" part of the page, here are some details: the publisher is United India Periodicals, and the year is 1962. ----Kailash29792 (talk) 05:23, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
Kailash29792, the problem is that we don't know which issue the desired content is in. It could be in 26, 27, 28, etc.; there are 26 possibilities. By getting in touch with Google you can likely find out which, significantly narrowing the search range for anyone attempting to fulfill your request. --Usernameunique (talk) 17:37, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
I think it must be January 1962, since the film was released on the 26th of that month. I say this because page 40, from the little content visible, looks like a review. If not January, most likely February. ----Kailash29792 (talk) 07:15, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

The Illustrated Weekly of India - Volume 83, Part 1Edit

In page 57, the making of Nenjil Or Aalayam has been covered. I'd like that page, as well as page 61. The last time I requested this, it was archived without being responded to. I do not want the same to repeat this time. ----Kailash29792 (talk) 11:04, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Kailash29792, volume 83 appears to be for all of 1962, which would include some 52 issues. I would suggest touching base with Google Books here also to see if they can tell you which issue (particularly the day/month) the search term appears in. --Usernameunique (talk) 05:20, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
I think it must be January 1962, since that is when the film was released. The film's release date is 26 January, but this could not have been published on the same day. ----Kailash29792 (talk) 07:12, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

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)

Link, Volume 6, Issues 26-52Edit

I would like page 37 of the above-linked source; it has information on the film Kadhalikka Neramillai. ----Kailash29792 (talk) 04:14, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Kailash29792, as Pajz noted in response to your request for Link, Volume 4, Issues 26-51, it's almost impossible to fulfill requests like these unless someone happens to have the whole volume. Google Books page numbering is inconsistent, and may not match the original materials. Some academic journals have continuous numbering - in other words, in volume 6, there will be only one page 37. Link appears to be a magazine. Magazines generally have a page 37 in every issue.
So a request for "page 37, volume 6, issues 26-52" looks as if you want page 37 of issue 26, page 37 of issue 27, page 37 of issue 28, and so on. In order to have a chance of someone finding this for you, you need to specify which issue has the page 37 that you want. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 11:19, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
Sorry about that. Not all details are explicitly present. But the publisher is United Periodicals, and the year is 1964. I can't find anything more, except that it was obtained from Virginia Univ as per G Books. --Kailash29792 (talk) 11:53, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

If it is general consensus not to refer to this, within the article about 70% have to be deleted. Pls. use article disk. --Tom (talk) 17:36, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

I don't think there is relevant content not in the linked article. More likely the preceding pages are the transcript of the defendant being re-arraigned on long indictment so not particularly relevant unless you want the details of the counts in the indictment. Nthep (talk) 18:09, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
Well I came over missing points because of the timeline. Wendy Scurr is reported to be the first person to alarm the police about the incident. This is not mentioned in the Court-Protocol. Multiple Sources for this can be found in the net. The first alarm to the police should be a point in a shortened time line in the article which is missing until now. --Tom (talk) 18:31, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
Tom, I don't know about administrative practices in Australia, but there are other countries where the original transcript is a transcript of the session. In order words, it may well be that the hearing for a given case starts on page 50 of the transcript simply because the court dealt with other matters before that. It also seems somewhat implausible here that someone would have cut off content relevant to this case, given that the document starts with the names of counsel appearing, which I have never seen to be located anywhere other than at the very beginning of a case transcript. That being said, transcripts are not normally published, so the possibilities for people here are very limited anyhow. Basically, the only way I could think of to resolve this is if a version of the transcript is available freely on the internet already or perhaps through some specialiced legal database. (It is not available through the academic edition of Westlaw Int'l materials. I checked that.) In the end, if you want to learn more about this, you may need to get in touch with the court directly (see also http://www.supremecourt.tas.gov.au/decisions/sentences: "For information about sentences prior to 2005 email the Supreme Court Library or telephone the Library on 6165 7446"). — Pajz (talk) 18:32, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
Well I looked up information about the praxis in Australia. See HIGH COURT OF AUSTRALIA: "FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 1982 - SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL" P.48, (Hobart files 6 Matters for 1996/1997 see P. 51). It is no help for the project if it is only me to have access to this paper as I wrote introduction. BTW this case is a matter of "An Issue of International Concern" and not just a "no-name-case". All colleagues must have the chance to verify the source. Exactly this is why I ask for support from here. In the end it is the central point for authors to ask for project-support. Right? --Tom (talk) 18:46, 13 April 2018 (UTC) P.S. please read Talk:Port_Arthur_massacre_(Australia)#Problems_with_used_sources_of_the_article

Warren P. MasonEdit

I'm intending to write an article on the currently redlinked electrical/acoustic engineer Warren P. Mason. The following would be helpful;

The 117th Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America held a special memorial session of presentations about, or concerning Mason. One was the basis for the paper in IEEE Transactions above. I can see abstracts in the The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (vol. 85, iss. S1, May 1989) but the full papers are not there. If anyone can find where these have been published (if they've been published at all), the most useful looking ones are;

  1. "Warren P. Mason (1900–1986), physicist, engineer, inventor, author, teacher"
  2. "Warren P. Mason: Some brief encounters, some long memories"
  3. "An equivalent circuit appreciation of Warren P. Mason"

Muzilon, do you have any other reason to believe that this appeared in the January issue, or are you just inferring that from the Google Books cover? Because, in the latter case, I would point out that this doesn't seem to be a legitimate inference (the volume Google scanned here - from the University of Michigan - includes the issues "2003 Jan-Jun", according to Hathitrust, i.e. all we'd be able to infer from that is that the article must have appeared between issue 626 (January 2003) and 631 (June 2003), perhaps on page 59 - provided Google's software correctly identified the page). Best, — Pajz (talk) 06:47, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

DPIPWE in Hobart, Tasmania (access to historical articles, either "ONLINE" or "IN PERSON")Edit

I've put considerable time into researching the History of Smooth Island (Tasmania).

I wanted to improve the article by being able to describe what activities have occurred on the island since the early 1800s, but have not come up with anything substantive.

I have completely exhausted all resources available to me, include Trove, Google Books as well the historical and newspaper sections of the State library of Tasmania (LINC Tasmania)[1].

The DPIPWE (Department of Primary Industry, Parks, Wildlife and Environment), located at 134 Macquarie Street, Hobart, Tasmania,[2] is likely to hold information which is essential for this project.

Specifically, the following agencies likely have invaluable information:

  • Land Tasmania (Titles and Survey office)
  • Department of Corporate, Heritage and Lands (Natural and Cultural Heritage Division)
  • Crown land services branch
  • Land Tasmania (Geodata services branch)
  • Office of the surveyor general
  • Office of the valuer general

Is there any way of accessing their historical records online?
Does anyone work in these departments, or is familiar with how the public access their records?
Does anyone visit the DPIPWE in Hobart regularly?

I'm wondering if anyone has a subscription to the British Newspaper Archive and would be willing to assist.

I'm writing the article Alfred Heaver; he was a property developer murdered in a most disturbing fashion by a mad relative at the start of August 1901.

(And not interested in articles on his will, of which there are many.)

I guess the brief for this request would be to access the text of some of the longer articles indicated by the link, above ... it's a rather more open-ended request than most on this board. Feel free to remove the request if this is an inappropriate request. thanks --Tagishsimon (talk) 23:39, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Tagishsimon, I have the London Times article on the inquest. It's only one paragraph long, but seemingly helpful. Send me an email and I'll reply with the PDF. FYI, I got this from the Times database, so if anyone has access to British Newspaper Archive, there may be additional useful articles. John M Baker (talk) 17:10, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks John; you have email. --Tagishsimon (talk) 17:18, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
Tagishsimon, the article has been emailed. John M Baker (talk) 17:35, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
Thx John. Much obliged. --Tagishsimon (talk) 18:20, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
@Tagishsimon: email me and I'll send you several accounts of the inquest from various papers. None are extensive but they do explore the motives for the killing.One is a pretty full account of the inquest. Nthep (talk) 17:45, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
@Nthep: - thanks; emailed. --Tagishsimon (talk) 18:20, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
sent. Nthep (talk) 18:30, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Nthep. Fascinating. Poor Mr. Heaver. --Tagishsimon (talk) 18:32, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Need an archeological article from East Anglian Archaeology, Issue 50Edit

East Anglian Archaeology, Issue 50, has an article (including page 182) that discusses some elements from Aartswoud, a village in the Netherlands. I'd love to see a copy of it. Thanks! Drmies (talk) 21:33, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

  • And on the same topic, I'm looking for "Aartswoud". West-Friesland's "Oud en nieuw" (7): 203.  (page numbers incomplete). I'd LOVE to have access to all the content of that journal... Drmies (talk) 00:00, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
  • Drmies, email me for part of the first article. 182 is actually the index; have scans of pages 92/95, however, and should be able to get the rest within a week (today if lucky; later if they have to reshelve it before scanning again). --Usernameunique (talk) 19:12, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

@Serial Number 54129: I think I can do that one. It's not showing as "available", but is an open access book (it just looks like dodgy record keeping to me). Bellezzasolo Discuss 22:48, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
