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.

Nightclubbing, Nexis gives no author for #2-#4 and attributes #1 to Michael Cragg. Doesn't necessarily mean that there wasn't any author in the print edition for the others, but most of these are very small summaries/recommendations, so it may also be that they were part of a larger section by someone.

The Spectator 3rd December 1988Edit

  • 3 Dec 1988, The Spectator Archive, containing " I much enjoyed Susan Hillmore's novella The Greenhouse (Collins/Harvill, £9.95) for its well-bedded flowery prose but I liked an equally ..."

For The Greenhouse (novel)

Thanks, GrahamHardy (talk) 22:49, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Here's a link to the review itself, with a bit more of it visible in the non-subscriber preview: [2]. Cheers, gnu57 23:13, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
The article seems not to be a full review, but merely Anthony Blond's entry in the Spectator's 'Books of the Year' feature, alongside the recommendations of other public intellectuals and literati. The full sentence about The Greenhouse is:

I much enjoyed Susan Hillmore's novella The Greenhouse (Collins/Harvill, £9.95) for its well-bedded flowery prose but I liked an equally properly written first novel, (which I also published), Marks of Weakness by Geraldine Jones (Anthony Blond/Quartet, £11.95) which only got one (good) review, from Isobel Quigly, who didn't like our jacket.

Blond goes on to say more about the Jones book and another by A. J. Ayer, but I doubt that the full text would be relevant to you. Cheers, gnu57 23:27, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your help GrahamHardy (talk) 07:40, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

  • The Independent review (may be the same): quote: "Hillmore's writing is dense and dappled with colour and light--a novel of strange power."[3]
  • The Literary Review review: quote: "...Moving and poetic...The Greenhouse should be read for the beauty of its descriptions, its original vision, and its complete lack of vugarity, rare in a contemporary novel."[4]
  • Washington Times review: quote:"There is haunting beauty in this melancholy tale."[5]

The Seattle Times archives: NewsbankEdit

Per talk page discussions, it seems that Caroline Brady died in Bellevue Washington, on 5 November 1980. I have been unable to find anything resembling an obituary for her, perhaps hindered by the undercoverage of Washington newspapers on and The Seattle Public Library, however, has online access to a number of newspapers, including, with a library card, The Seattle Times (link). Does anyone have a library card, and if so, would you be willing to search through the archive to see if there is any coverage of Brady, particularly an obituary or death notice? Thanks, Usernameunique (talk) 16:07, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello, I am looking for the text of three reviews of Hermeneutics and the Human Sciences. Note that in each case EBSCO provides only a listing of the review, not the text.

The first review is by Andrew Edgar. Publication details: Sociology. Aug82, Vol. 16 Issue 3, p461-463. ISSN: 0038-0385. DOI: 10.1177/0038038582016003017. There is a link to a portion of the review here.

Battle of NoyersEdit


I have been improving the 59th (Staffordshire) Infantry Division, however there is very little information available regarding the division's actions during the Battle of Noyer, where the division suffered some heavy losses. The following sources discuss the fighting, although they are neither available online or only in snippet form. I have no local access to these sources, which appear would be be able to flesh out the article and detail the division's effort to capture Noyer. Is anyone able to provide the relevant pages from these sources, or directly edit the article with information from them?

frwiki has a userbox for people with access which might help. Nikkimaria (talk) 11:55, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
@WBG: I understand what you want, but am mystified by the discussion with Nikkimaria. Do you think TWL's deal with L'Harmattan includes the book? I'm disinclined to sign up just to find out, but then I'm not the one who wants the source. Have you tried signing up? --Worldbruce (talk) 22:22, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
I asked for help over the French-wiki where one ignored whilst the other two said that their subscriptions have long expired. (TWL ought to keep a list of users who have access to different sources.)
Consuming one subscription for accessing a single book is a bit selfish. WBGconverse 13:08, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@Kailash29792: Can you tell us which article you plan to use the resource to expand on? OhanaUnitedTalk page 22:15, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
The original intention was only Mullum Malarum. If I see any other film talked about in the article, that too. Kailash29792 (talk) 03:44, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
@Kailash29792: Volunteers here don't always have direct access to a source, but may still be able to order it for you from a library or through a personal connection, if you supply full bibliographic information.
Help us help you. You can get the complete information by asking Google Books. Start on their page you linked. At the bottom, click "Report an issue". That brings up a "Contact us" form. Choose the last option, "I have a question or feedback about a book". Fill in the contact section, give them the page numbers 58-59, categorize your inquiry as "Other", and explain that you need the issue, date, article title, and author in order to request the article from the closed stacks of a library. They are usually very helpful. --Worldbruce (talk) 22:38, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

question to user Sudiani about a Hollywood Reporter page 1 Superman movie article from December 28, 1978Edit

question to user Sudiani

Hi, I am User:Starmarco2014 and you helped me to ask a question to user Sudiani about a Hollywood Reporter page 1 article from December 28, 1978. He answered this: "I don't have a copy of the article/edition. The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts have the daily editions of The Hollywood Reporter for that period which is where I saw the information. If you are just interested in the Jaws II record, possibly Variety reported similar information when Superman came out and their back issues are available online."

I would like to answer that and ask another question :

Thanks for your attention Sudiani. I actually want to know about Superman movie Christmas 1978 box office and Hollywood Reporter from December 27 and 28 ,1978 has such info ( I am a Variety subscriber and unfortunately it doesn't have this information from Hollywood Reporter that you saw.) As I live in Brazil, I would like a favor: one day,if you go again to The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts , can you please copy the text or photo the 'Superman' takes $3.2 mil one day December 28th 1978 article for me?? And see if the December 27 edition has more info? I would be so grateful... Regards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Starmarco2014 (talkcontribs) 05:14, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Kafka, Stories & Shorter WorksEdit

I'm still on the hunt for additional translations (I think I'm done now) and would appreciate if someone could check

  2. Kafka, Franz. Shorter Works : Vol. 1 / Franz Kafka. Transl. from the German and ed. by Malcolm Pasley. London, Secker & Warburg, 1973. ISBN 043623047X.

for a translation of "The Top" (might be called "The Spinning Top" or "The Philosopher [and the Top]") and, if one is included, could send me a scan of that translation and the book's front matter. (Must be from exactly these editions.) For User:Pajz/spinning top draft. That would be great :). Thanks, — Pajz (talk) 15:29, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

@Pajz:, please email me for #2. I wasn't able to get my hands on #1, but I was able to access what looks like a later edition from 1994 (ISBN 0349106592), and it didn't seem to contain this story. – Uanfala (talk) 23:13, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

DownBeat and Music and Sound Output reviewsEdit

I'm looking for these two album reviews for Voice of America:

  1. "Voice of America". Music and Sound Output. July 1983. ISSN 0273-8902.
  2. "Voice of America". DownBeat. February 1984. ISSN 0012-5768.

I don't have the reviewer's names or page numbers. The review titles probably have "Voice of America" in them, but I can't be sure.

Thanks, —Bruce1eetalk 11:33, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

@Pajz: Thank you for the table of contents. The review is titled "Fred Frith/Bob Ostertag/Phil Minton" in "Record Reviews" starting on page 30. Unfortunately I don't have the exact page number. —Bruce1eetalk 21:11, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

It's a seminar of the Center for Research in Security Prices. The article in Barron's referred to in the snippet would also be useful if it can be identified.

@Slightlymad: Sorry, the Amazon previews don't include those chapters. I gave the page numbers to narrow down the search for those who may have access to the books. —Bruce1eetalk 11:05, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Slightlymad, thanks, appreciate the full citations. I may be able to help, but for legal reasons can only do so if you clearly state what exactly you need (be it a particular chapter, a particular page range, the pages listed in the index under a particular keyword, etc.). Also, if you are interested in the three chapters mentioned by Bruce1ee, the requested amount of pages (180) seems fairly high, at least too high for me. I would encourage you to use Google Books' and Amazon's previews to retrieve as many desired pages as possible (perhaps take screenshots). For instance, I can easily see more than half of the chapter from #3 using Google Books. — Pajz (talk) 21:57, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
Is that so, Pajz? How about I just take all the pages from number 2 and forget about the rest? Will that suffice? Slightlymad (talkcontribs) 11:49, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Mann, Brent (2003). 99 Red Balloons--: And 100 All-time One-hit Wonders. Citadel Press. ISBN 978-0-8065-2516-7.

I can see from the Google Books preview that the album is mentioned on page 148 and there is more information on page 149 (which is not available in the preview). I am not entirely certain if the information will be useful or not for the article, but it would be nice to know for certain. Thank you in advance! Aoba47 (talk) 19:29, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Arthur Cornwallis Madan (looking for obituary )Edit

For Arthur Cornwallis Madan

I try to write an article on the prolific British linguist (and missionary) Arthur Cornwallis Madan.

I hope for an obituary in the Oxford University calendar, 1917.

There could be an obituary at Visitation of England and Wales, vol 19, Joseph Jackson Howard, Frederick Arthur Crisp, Priv. printed, 1917 , possibly page 35

There is something on Madan at Walter Lock, Oxford Memories, Oxford University Press, H. Milford, 1932 , pp 105 - 107

Kipala, hm, doesn't the page you're linking to for #1 suggest that there's no such obituary? See also Google Books: [10] and [11] (two different scans of the 1917 volume) give only four pages containing "Arthur" and "Cornwallis", and if you look at the snippets (which I hope are also displayed at your end), the individual's only mention appears to be on page 428 as part of a list. Doesn't look to me like there is an obituary. — Pajz (talk) 04:10, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
