Finding a source[edit]

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[edit]

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

Copyright tips:

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

March 2018[edit]

Official Verbatim Report of the Parliamentary Debates of the Zambian National Assembly[edit]

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

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

The volumes I have not been able to access are:

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

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

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

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

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

May 2018[edit]

On Chris Connelly’s participation in Psalm 69[edit]

A source in question is Chris Connelly’s autobiography:

Connelly, Chris (2014). Concrete, Bulletproof, Invisible & Fried: My Life as A Revolting Cock. Philadelphia, PA: Shipwrecked Industries. ISBN 9780966406559. A 2007 edition would be fine too. 

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.

Once more request for Ministry[edit]

In addition to the request above.

All these sources required would be appropriate for the article Ministry (band) and its related entries. As for #1, I need page 12, which refers to Al Jourgensen’s first wedding date, and another one referring to the Ministry—Arista Records dispute and Jourgensen’s later activities on Wax Trax! Records. 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).

P.S. At last I’d remembered I need Jourgensen’s interview from the November 2008 issue of Hustler Magazine (that one where Jourgensen had revealed reasons on Ministry’s “dissolution” after The Last Sucker). For now, it is enough. Gleb95 (talk) 20:02, 30 May 2018 (UTC).

Placed a hold on #2, #3 and #5. Note that it looks like #5 should also be available from ProQuest - maybe someone's subscription includes access to that article? — Pajz (talk) 18:17, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

For Jesus, who built a hotrod for Ministry[edit]

For the article Jesus Built My Hotrod.

Thanks, Gleb95 (talk) 07:49, 31 May 2018 (UTC).

@Gleb95: For 3rd one, I have a 2004 edition. Do you want ? For 2nd one, It should be '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. Am I right ? I have 2006 edition of this book. Is this work? If you want to see please send me a wikimail and I will attach with reply. --Gazal world (talk) 08:12, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
@Gazal world: Send 3rd one [I’ll send my mail.]. For 2nd, I mean 1001 Songs..., and not 1001 Albums... . Gleb95 (talk) 08:30, 31 May 2018 (UTC).
Yes Sent 2nd and 3rd. Cheers. --Gazal world (talk) 08:47, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
@Gazal world: Thanks for both, but for 3rd, I meant The Top 500 Heavy Metal Songs of All Time, not albums. Still it will be fine for Psalm 69 entry. Gleb95 (talk) 09:57, 31 May 2018 (UTC) [updated by Gleb95 (talk) 21:09, 1 June 2018 (UTC)].
Placed a hold on #2. (Probably tomorrow if it arrives in time.) — Pajz (talk) 09:58, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
@Pajz: I already sent it (#2) to Gleb95. --Gazal world (talk) 11:41, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
Remember first hearing this on John Peel, c.1991, Days Of Glory And nights Too :) great stuff! —SerialNumber54129 paranoia /cheap sh*t room 12:21, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
Gazal world, my understanding was that you sent a book titled "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die", while Gleb95 is looking for one titled "1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die". — Pajz (talk) 13:12, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
@Pajz: No, Gleb95's comment is related to 3rd one (The Top 500 Heavy Metal Songs of All Time). I mistakenly sent him 'The Top 500 Heavy Metal Album of All Time'. But the 2nd one (1001 Songs: You Must Hear Before You Die) have been sent safely. --Gazal world (talk) 13:28, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
Cancelled. Confused by the contradictory statements above, — Pajz (talk) 21:04, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Princeton University Library[edit]

I am not sure if this belongs into the "full book scan" category, but has someone access to this map for Sajama? Thanks in advance. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 20:05, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

@Jo-Jo Eumerus: That one probably does go into the "full book" category unless you can provide a rationale for why the map is public domain. Is there a particular location on the map you're interested in? ~ Rob13Talk 11:03, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
@BU Rob13: I am primarily wondering about the parts that directly pertain to Nevado Sajama, i.e its immediate surroundings to its foot. I've been thinking for a long while about improving that article but the total absence of information about its geology/volcanology has stymied such efforts.

For Gujarati Wiki[edit]

I run similar 'Resource Exchange' page on Gujarati Wikipedia. One of the editor from Gujarati Wikipedia need biography of 'Bhaktilaxmi Desai' (popularly known as 'Bhaktiba Desai'). I believe, the above book must contains biographical details about her. It would be great help if someone can manage to send scanned pages of relevant chapters (probably 1st and 2nd, I don't know) from the book. Thanks --Gazal world (talk)

@Gazal world: What pages do you need? ~ Rob13Talk 13:45, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
@BU Rob13: Hello, I don't know actually. I am wandering for biography of Bhaktilaxmi Desai. According to book title, the book is based on same subject, Bhaktilaxmi Desai. The details of birth and education and early career would be enough. --Gazal world (talk) 13:52, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

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.

1974 obituaries[edit]

Hello. In order to create Marvin Brooks Norfleet, I would need his obituaries from 1974. Norfleet was a state senator in Tennessee and he ran for state attorney in Arkansas. His name comes up in the literature on segregation. I am unable to find his obituaries on Please ping me if/when you can find anything. Thanks!Zigzig20s (talk) 02:20, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

@Zigzig20s: Closest I could find is a Find A Grave page that copies entry. As this isn't reliable, the only other thing I found is that he was named Marvin Brooks Norfleet Jr. came up with nothing as well. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 02:46, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

CFTC Advisory Committee Report[edit]

This was previously requested in 2015, to no avail, but we have several new contributors since then, so I'm going to try again. I'm looking for a copy of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission 1976 report from its Advisory Committee on Commodity Futures Trading Professionals, also known as the Martin Committee. This was reprinted in full in CCH Commodity Futures Law Reports, Special Edition No. 29, Part II (Aug. 20, 1976). I would be happy with either the original report or the CCH reprint. The report's summary was printed in CCH Commodity Futures Law Reports ¶ 20,197 (Aug. 20, 1976); I already have the summary and am not looking for that. This is for commodity pool operator and possibly commodity trading advisor. John M Baker (talk) 21:44, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Here is the WorldCat summary – looks like it's only at Stanford, LA County Law Library, Wayne State, and the CFTC. If you want to, you can try a direct request to the CFTC. Best, Kevin (aka L235 · t · c) 20:34, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
Kevin, yes, that's it. I'm sure it's actually in many more libraries, since CCH Commodity Futures Law Reports is widely held, and most libraries wouldn't treat this as a separate holding. Unfortunately, when CCH computerized their holdings, they don't seem to have included this document, and only law libraries and a few other large libraries would still have the Reports in hardcopy.

I did see that page, but I do not think there is a description hiding. Dwergenpaartje (talk) 22:54, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
@Dwergenpaartje: On the left of the page there's a PDF button, which I think is the full text of the source. —Bruce1eetalk 05:48, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
True, but I do not have access, even if it contains the description I need. Dwergenpaartje (talk) 06:43, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
@Dwergenpaartje: I have JSTOR Plants access, and can confirm that Bruce1ee's link ultimately leads only to the full sized illustration (of what is pictured in thumbnail), not to any text. JSTOR archived a collection of the original artwork rather than the journal in which it was reproduced. The meta data describes the image as:
  • Relation: Flowering Plants of Africa, vol. 45, plate no. 1781
  • Description: Published in 1978. Flowering branch and flower dissection in colour, flower cross-section in pencil.
The journal probably hasn't been digitized, so you'll need a library with a physical copy of the relevant issue. I think you're looking for the article in volume 45 (1978–1979) of which plate 1781 is a part.
If no one here can get you a free copy, email me for a link to a library's special collections department that will copy it and email it to you for a modest fee (US$5-$10). --Worldbruce (talk) 19:04, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

For James Armistead Lafayette. Want to verify key (birth & death) facts. Thanks, Shearonink (talk) 00:48, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Fyi - There are different editions -, pub. 2012/2017, any would do. Shearonink (talk) 01:50, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
Doesn't anyone have access to this book? It would really be helpful to have those pages at hand so I can nail down the facts of this man's birth & death. There are two different years cited for his birth and two different years cited for his death AND two different states that he is said to have died in... if possible I'd like to clear up at least some of the confusion. Thanks, Shearonink (talk) 19:34, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
@Shearonink: Hello, the American National Biography has an entry about James Lafayette. If you want to see, I can download and send it to you. -Gazal world (talk) 22:29, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
@Gazal world: That might help - I am not familiar with the Am Nat Biography. The thing about Freedom on My Mind is that source documents (in some capacity) are provided within the volume. I came across a statement in the Encyclopedia of Virginia - an official publication of the Virginia State Archives found here that James Armistead Lafayette died in Baltimore on a specific date, the Encyclopedia citing Rev War pension records but not providing any text to support October 9, 1830. And then there's an article published by the US Army stating he died in Virginia with no reference and then the death date/year is all over the place online but it would really help to see some actual sources/references. He either was born in 1748 or 1760 but the birthdate doesn't necessarily bother me. He lived much of his life as a person held in bondage so records are not the best BUT he was a spy for the Americans during the Revolutionary War and helped turn the tide for the Colonials and was finally freed by an act of the Virginia Assembly in 1787. This man was a hero and the truthful verifiable year of his death (maybe even the date?!?) at least deserves to be known, never mind the unknown burial place in Baltimore.... Ok, climbing down off of my soapbox for now. Thanks for whatever you can do. Shearonink (talk) 00:36, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Thank you - got it. Oddly, even though it agrees with the Virginia State Encyclopedia that Armistead Lafayette died on October 9, 1830 ANB doesn't give a source for the death place but then gives the death place as being in New Kent County, VA... Shearonink (talk) 13:19, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Paleontological documents[edit]

Hi, I'm working on eurypterids and I plan to work with the chasmataspidids as well, so I would need some documents:

  • Caster, Kenneth E.; Kjellesvig-Waering, Erik N. (1964). Upper Ordovician eurypterids of Ohio. Paleontological Research Institution. ASIN B0007DOLSM.

For Unionopterus, Eocarcinosoma and Chasmataspis (at the moment without article), respectively. It is important that they contain images, especially the first, I say this because in my first request, the document had no images (I do not know if it was like that or they were missing).

Thanks in advance. Super Ψ Dro 20:58, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Super Dromaeosaurus, not sure what the point of these repeated questions is, but you could certainly help the process by providing more information on what you're looking for. For instance, you're talking about a volume 2 but the Google page says volume 7. Also, you're now talking about a book but above you indicated that it is an article in a journal. Also, if it is indeed from a journal, you could try to find the ISSN (because for Ukrainian titles there are often vast amounts of different transcriptions, making it very hard for others to check their local library catalogues for it.) — Pajz (talk) 19:06, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Von Maier chapter or excerpt for GA review of Solo diving[edit]

  • Von Maier, Robert (1991). "6: Opinions". Solo Diving. Watersport Publishing. ISBN 0-922769-13-3. 

For Solo diving GA review. Challenged text is: The possible impression that solo divers are unsociable is often wrong. Most solo divers are normally gregarious and want to share their enjoyment of diving with others – they just want to do it when they get to the surface. The solitude they want to enjoy is during the dive. These solo divers take pleasure in this solitude and in the feeling of self-sufficiency for this style of diving, that one is not dependent on others, but is relying solely on one's own skills and capabilities. Finally, there is the sense of freedom, of not being impeded by the need to look after anyone but oneself and therefore being able to achieve one's own goal in the dive without compromising.

As the section title says, I am specifically looking for the fourth issue of Głos, which was published in 2010.

If anyone can find a copy of it, preferably but not necessarily a digital one I can directly access (scans are fine), that would be great.

Paul Abels (The Advocate, Religion News Service, The Methodist Experience in America)[edit]

I'm working on the article I started last year, Paul Abels, about the first openly gay minister to serve in a major Christian denomination in the US. The Homosexual and Society: An Annotated Bibliography by Robert B. Marks Ridinger directed me to a few articles in The Advocate[1] that date back further than my university library has access to, namely:

I also stumbled upon these sources which are either about Abels or could be very relevant for background:

Any help in obtaining these sources (as well as the front matter of the issues in question, in the case of the periodicals) would be greatly appreciated. My e-mail address is Thanks, (talk) 03:04, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Paleomerus and Parapaleomerus[edit]

I need these papers since they describe in each one a genus or species.

It seems that Parapaleomerus (second book) is described on page 136, so I need this one.

Looking for book review of Sexual Preference[edit]

Hello, I am looking for Doug Futuym and Richard Wagner's review of Sexual Preference; it appeared in The Advocate issue 335 on January 21, 1982. The review, entitled "Kith and Kinsey", should be on pages 64 through 66 of this issue of The Advocate. The ISSN is 0001-8996 and the Accession Number is 10170275. Note that while I have EBSCO access, and can find a listing of the review in EBSCO's system, the EBSCO listing of the review does not provide its actual text, otherwise I wouldn't be making this request.

Notable Women of Hawaii[edit]

For multiple articles. If this is too much, I can modify the page numbers so you can scan the more important needed pages for my research. Thanks, KAVEBEAR (talk) 00:10, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

@KAVEBEAR:, I can scan a copy of those pages for you this weekend, unless my power goes out because of Hurricane Lane. I can probably get a few done tonight, so let me know if there are certain biographies that you'd prefer to receive first. Mcampany (talk) 20:24, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
@Mcampany: I never knew you live in Hawaii. Dude. Can you help me some other requests in the future? I can wait for all these pages, so no worry. Hope you weathered Hurricane Lane. Mahalo! KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:31, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Indian Films[edit]

I would like pages Page P-124, P-133 and P-313 of this book to expand Chakravarthy, Pattina Pravesam and Aval Appadithan. Although I received page 124 before, it was via GDrive where I forgot to save it, and it got deleted in 10 days. I hope not to repeat the same again.
