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.

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)
Usernameunique, 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)
Kailash29792, in response to your talk page ping ("I have given some updated info at the Resource Request page over here and here. Please respond."), I sent Google Books an email about this magazine a few days ago, asking for them to please provide the correct issue and date for page 40. I will update when I hear back. In the future, such a rudimentary step would be easy to do yourself before posting your request. --Usernameunique (talk) 07:07, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Kailash29792, per Google Books: "Hello, Thank you for reaching out to the Google Books team. The page displayed in the snippet view for this volume is in issue number 35 from April 8, 1962." In the future, you can email Google Books with such questions yourself by using the "Report an issue" link at the bottom of the page. --Usernameunique (talk) 21:48, 7 May 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)
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)

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)

April 2018Edit

Boston Herald on Saturday, December 29, 1917Edit

Anyone with access to newspaperarchive.com (Bruce1eeMrLinkinPark333): The same story, or at least one containing the words "women" "special mention" "Harvard" and "Miss C. Hall", is on page 2 of the December 29, 1917 Bakersfield Californian. Can someone clip it for Meanderingbartender? --Worldbruce (talk) 03:10, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
I'd love to, but my subscription is expired. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 03:14, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
@Meanderingbartender: email me for a jpg of the Bakersfield Californian article, titled "Nurses Are Cited by General Haig". It isn't as useful as a clipping, which our readers could download freely, but it may suffice for your purposes. --Worldbruce (talk) 06:41, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
@Meanderingbartender and Worldbruce: I've clipped "Nurses Are Cited by General Haig" from that newspaper. You should see it here. —Bruce1eetalk 08:00, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
@Bruce1ee and Worldbruce: Thank you kindly for the article. I'll use it as a reference for the citation, but I believe the Herald has more details on the actions that were used for the citation. So I'm still hoping to get a copy of that. --Meanderingbartender (talk) 17:13, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
Meanderingbartender, you might try emailing the writer of this blog, which quotes the article at length. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 04:41, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

Book about the Elliston familyEdit

Hello. I am looking for The Elliston, Ellison family by Bertha Bazemore Elliston (OCLC 608648599). Only a few clips are viewable on Google Books and it's not available on Amazon or Ebay. Could someone please help me find a copy? Please ping me when you reply. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 16:09, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Zigzig20s, according to Worldcat, it is available in some U.S. libraries. I haven't been able to find it anywhere for sale, and it appears that it used to be distributed directly by the author at some point (https://www.ancestry.co.uk/boards/surnames.elliston/43.2.1.1.1/mb.ashx). So I would assume there is no way around consulting one of the holding libraries if you want to get hold of a copy. Best, — Pajz (talk) 19:04, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
That's a tough one. I've just looked for it on the HathiTrust Digital Library and it says, "This item is not available online ( Limited - search only) due to copyright restrictions." Are we sure there is no other way?Zigzig20s (talk) 20:49, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Lavi's actorsEdit

I recently created the article Lavi (D.Gray-man) but I failed to find source in regards to his actor's car accident and his replacement. I'm pretty sure the DVDs from the first seasons of D.Gray-man might provide some commentary about it but I'm from South America so I have no access to them. Does anybody have those DVDs?

Film Review (London), January 2003Edit

Need a copy of the article on page 59 of the January 2003 issue of Film Review, which refers to Pamela Green in Peeping Tom. May be available via Hathi Trust. Thanks. --Muzilon (talk) 00:22, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

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)
Admittedly, I was just going by Google Books. A search of Hathi Trust turns up "page 59" of Film Review, but I can't be sure of the exact date if January is not correct. --Muzilon (talk) 00:20, 20 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?

Thank you

Vitreology (talk) 03:39, 20 April 2018 (UTC)


Vitreology, as a general matter, I think you should get in touch with the institutions directly to find out whether they make some of their material available online. However, what I would do first is probably to get in touch with LINC Tasmania, which you describe as a state library (that may well be right), but which, perhaps more importantly, also operates the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office. Of course it may be that you have contacted them already, but if not, that would seem like a natural starting point to me. State archives are generally in the best position to give you information on where to find answers to historical questions of that nature (be it in their collection or in some other place). And, of course, they receive vast amounts of material from other government agencies after some time. (In fact, if my experience from other countries is anything to go by, agencies whose name sounds like they ought to have information on some historical topic are often not well-equipped to handle requests because they lack the necessary archiving infrastructure to do so. One of the very points of a state archive, after all, is to spare each and every agency from having to host a large collection of historical materials themselves, and from having to employ archive staff to help with research requests.) If you look at https://www.linc.tas.gov.au/get-help/Pages/help-finding.aspx, they specifically offer to provide "information or provide a search path" in response to queries, and they provide a dedicated form for research questions, at http://sltas.altarama.com/reft100.aspx?key=Research. I would definitely make use of that. Needless to say, working with archival material is extremely hard (and often impossible) if you can't be there in person, but for instance you could ask if they are aware of any publications on the topic you're interested in. (This can be very helpful. Just as an example, a few months ago I asked the state archive of a Swiss canton for information on whether the canton joined a particular treaty in the 1840s. They know of a local historian familiar with this topic, gave me his email address, and could refer me to a book he published a few years ago - it was widely available, I would just never have looked there.) Personally, I believe this is not too much of a constraint for our work here given that we should not rely on primary sources anyways. Best, — Pajz (talk) 05:52, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

May 21, 1978 St. Louis Globe-Democrat article on Dee BoeckmannEdit

Hello. I'm looking for a May 21, 1978 article in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat by June Wuest Becht about Dee Boeckmann. Problem is, I don't know the article's name as it's only mentioned here. There's a possibility the article mentions her first name as Delores as Dee was her nickname. Thanks! --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:05, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

@MrLinkinPark333: if you're just after confirmation that he full name was Delores, there are plenty of newspaper reports that can confirm that. Is this 1978 article about anything more specific? Nthep (talk) 14:18, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
@Nthep: The reason why I mentioned Delores was just in case her given first name was different in the newspaper. The article talks about her Amateur Athletic Union records on page 147 of the above book (I accidentally linked to the wrong page). --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 15:44, 5 May 2018 (UTC)
Definitely Delores, I've added a ref to the LA Times which names her as Delores (Dee) Boeckmann. Nthep (talk) 16:05, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

The articles I’m going to improve are Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs and “Jesus Built My Hotrod”. Connelly wrote lyrics for “TV Song”, a track on the “J.B.M.H” single which morphed into “TV II” from Psalm 69, so some parts of book referring to these would be fine.

Obviously preferable if someone with direct access can help, but since you mention you've alredy tried to get hold of it via ILL: The British Railway Museum might have the volumes (their catalogue says "Holdings: Vol. 2, no. 159 (1951)- (Incomplete)"). If they do, it looks like you could order scans of the two articles for GBP 10.00 (order form). Depending on the generosity of your library, that might turn out to be substantially cheaper than an interlibrary loan from abroad. Just mentioning it because it strikes me as a pretty low price compared to what most institutions/national libraries charge for that service. But then again, maybe they don't have the volume at all.

It would be fine if there are another pages referring to Ministry and Uncle Al. As for #2 and #3, I’m looking mainly for pages missing in the Google Books preview.

Also, I would like to have clarified citation for this article on Ministry’s late 1984 tour from Creem Magazine. That’s it. From Russia with love, Gleb95 (talk) 17:32, 30 May 2018 (UTC).

Grundzüge der geologie und lagerstättankunde Chiles/Geología de BoliviaEdit

Greetings, has someone access to these two books? There should be a chapter or two chapters discussing a Lake Minchin and a possible southwestern outlet thereof, I need only these. Otherwise I'll fallback on other sources.

BU Rob13 Regarding the chapter question since apparently GBooks doesn't even have a snippet view for "Grundzüge der geologie und lagerstättankunde Chiles" I can't tell any exact chapter beyond the idea that itprobably is mentioned on pages 80-125, 160 and 252-266. Perhaps any chapter that mentions "Minchin"? Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 08:03, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Poetry in Theory: An Anthology 1900-2000Edit

Jon Cook (6 August 2004). Poetry in Theory: An Anthology 1900-2000. Wiley-Blackwell. ISBN 978-0-631-22554-6. OCLC 993841483. 

Need part I and Part II (both are section of the book) of the book. It is for Gujarati Wikipedia.

Thanks, Gazal world (talk) 18:29, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

Gazal world, parts I and II include 32 chapters, amounting to 220 pages (http://bvbr.bib-bvb.de:8991/exlibris/aleph/a22_1/apache_media/A629IF61D4XGDX7BCMSDF7R4DLJ3FH.pdf), so perhaps you can narrow that down. — Pajz (talk) 18:38, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
For now, part I would be enough. Thanks in advance. --Gazal world (talk) 18:53, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
@Pajz: Hi Pajz, Anny possibility for this ? --Gazal world (talk) 12:23, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
Well, if you're asking me personally: What's being requested here is the reproduction of 220 pages (limited "for now" to about 100 pages) from a collection of dozens of original texts (many of which are available online anyway) on dozens of specific topics by dozens of authors; as I don't see how such material is reasonably useful for the improvement of Wikipedia content, I haven't followed up on this thread here. Others may of course want to help. Best, — Pajz (talk) 15:07, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
Ohk. I can narrow down my request. Or would like to withdrawn my request. --Gazal world (talk) 20:02, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

The GuardianEdit

  • [author not identified] (March 1995). Guardian. p. 12.  Missing or empty |title= (help)
    b. [author not identified] (October 1995). Guardian. p. 15.  Missing or empty |title= (help)

For Cheyenne Mountain Complex, there are two citations for Guardian without enough information to actually find it. Seems like it is published by the Air Force Space Command, based on other citations in the article. Just looking for the article title so I can expand the citation out.

Thanks, Kees08 (Talk) 06:19, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

The Trouble with Genius by Bob PerelmanEdit

Need Chapter 2 (pp. 50 - 87), Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 from the above book. This is for Gujarati Wikipedia. Thanks in advance. Gazal world (talk) 20:24, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

@Gazal world: Could you clarify which article(s) you will be improving with this resource? ~ Rob13Talk 21:47, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
@BU Rob13: It will be useful on Gujarati wiki to create/improve w:gu:એઝરા પાઉન્ડ, Louis Zukofsky (Gujarati), and Origin of postmodernism (Gujarati). If possible, I will use to cite in other articles too. --Gazal world (talk) 04:50, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Reference for history of scuba diving trainingEdit

  • Brylske, Alex. The Complete Diver: The History, Science and Practice of Scuba Diving.  any edition.

I am looking for content on the history of scuba diver training, and this book might have useful content. Chapter 2 is most likely to have something relevant.

Failing this, any good recommendations would be appreciated. Google does not appear to get me anywhere.

Original description of Nanahughmilleria matakarensisEdit

I am working on the Parahughmilleria article and I can not find the original description of the species P. matakarensis. It's strange, since I know the name and author, but I can not find it in Google Scholar, Google Books or BHL. The complete citation of the document is:

Pirozhnikov, L. P. 1957. Remains of Gigantostraca from the series of Matakara (Devonian of the North Minusinsk Depression). Vsesoyuznoe Paleontologichesko Obshchestvo Eze-godnik, 16, 207–213.

Thanks in advance. Super Ψ Dro 18:36, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Super Dromaeosaurus, looks like ISSN 0201-9280. Note that the paper is in Russian, per https://wsc.nmbe.ch/resources/archive/catalog_14.5/Fossils14.5.pdf (p. 243), so you might want to review if it is still of interest to you. — Pajz (talk) 19:14, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

@CASSIOPEIA: The article does not mention anything about Kanye West's song. It primarily focuses on the soundtrack for Mission Impossible III. Do you still want this article? --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 01:42, 25 June 2018 (UTC)
