Finding a source

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 request

  • 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.

Hawaiian Music and Musicians: An Illustrated History

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)

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 [archive.org]. 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)
KAVEBEAR, as I would now be able to fulfill the request, please indicate if you are still interested in #2. If so, I can place a hold on the book; if you do not write back, I will take the liberty of archiving this request in one week's time and would ask you to repost it should you again be interested in the material at some point. Thanks, — Pajz (talk) 10:14, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
Still interested. Thanks!--KAVEBEAR (talk) 12:23, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

British Army Pamphlet on "Folding Boat Equipment"

Can anyone provide me with a copy of the British pre-World War II pamphlet Military Engineering Volume III Part II Folding Boat Equipment (both FBE Mark II or III versions of the pamphlet would be useful.) The FBE Mark II pamphlet is of 1930s vintage and out of Crown copyright. AshLin (talk) 08:05, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

AshLin, can you give the full bibliographic information for each of those? I'm a bit confused by the difference between "FBE Mark II or III"; are these different volumes and/or parts? --Usernameunique (talk) 21:47, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the response, separate training pamphlets were issued for successive versions of FBE, i.e. Mark II and Mark III when the equipment was introduced. I don't know exactly how the bibliographic information would be represented but it would be something like...

War Office (author) (1945). Military Engineering Volume III Part II. Equipment Bridges (Excluding Bailey). Pamphlet No 13. Folding Boat Equipment Mark III. (1945) War Office (publisher). London. The phrase "Military Engineering Volume III Part II. Equipment Bridges (Excluding Bailey)" would remain same for this series, which comprises pamphlets on all equipment bridges (excluding Bailey Bridge), with the FBE pamphlets always being numbered "Pamphlet No 13". Other bridging equipment would have different pamphlet numbers. All reissues of pamphlets on Folding Boar Equipment would continue to have same pamphlet number, i.e. 13, but would have different year of publication & the titles could also be modified, for example, the predecessor pamphlet to this pamphlet above was...

War Office (author) (1941). Military Engineering Volume III Part II. Equipment Bridges (Excluding Bailey). Pamphlet No 13. Provisional handbook forFolding Boat Equipment. (1941) War Office (publisher). London.

These two websites [2] & [3] may be helpful.

Daily Mail, 1906

In case anyone has access to the Daily Mail archive, I'm looking for an article from 10 January 1906, p. 3, possibly by Charles E. Hands. It's an article about the suffragettes; indeed, it was apparently this article that coined the term. Hoping someone can help; many thanks in advance, SarahSV (talk) 17:19, 23 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, email me for this. I think the article you're looking for is Mr. Balfour and the "Suffragettes" on page 5. --Usernameunique (talk) 01:58, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
SlimVirgin, sent. --Usernameunique (talk) 22:15, 16 April 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)
SlimVirgin, I wonder if your suspicion is right. It strikes me as quite common that terms are coined without much ado, and I believe the quotation marks around the term are a hint that the author may have made up the word himself. More importantly, however, the OED mentions the article identified by Usernameunique as its first recorded use of the term ("1906 Daily Mail 10 Jan. Mr. Balfour and the ‘Suffragettes’... It was not surprising that Mr. Balfour should receive a deputation of the Suffragettes."). Best, — Pajz (talk) 21:12, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
SlimVirgin, the byline doesn't say "Charles E. Hands," but it does say "From Our Special Correspondent." I wonder if Hands was "the" special correspondent for the Daily Mail (or for particular subjects for the Daily Mail), i.e., when they referred to a special correspondent (perhaps with reference to a particular subject), they were referring to him? Many of his bylines say "From Our Special Correspondent,/Charles E. Hands", or have the "From Our Special Correspondent" precede the text, and the "Charles E. Hands" follow it; the latter was true of an article he wrote on January 11th, "Mr. Balfour's Position." Hands seems to have been quite well known, as shown by his NYT obit, which also mentions his coining of the term. The 1931 letter to the editor that the obit mentions is here, but does not state particulars of the first usage. --Usernameunique (talk) 22:28, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Daily Mirror

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 26-51

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 1

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 Assembly

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)

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)

Link, Volume 6, Issues 26-52

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)

Lavi's actors

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 2003

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")

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 [www.linc.tas.gov.au], 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 [sltas.altarama.com]. 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)

  • Pajz, thanks for your thoughtful response. You've given me some ideas. I've submitted a research request via your 2nd link. Thanks very much for the advice.

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

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)
