Finding a source[edit]

Tips for finding a source yourself

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 handle full book scans
  • 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.

New requests[edit]


April 2016[edit]

1936 Guardian article: from Guardian digital archive or ProQuest archiver[edit]

I'd like to improve Catherine Winkworth. Two sources would be useful:

"PECCAVI": A Good Story Killed, The Manchester Guardian, 14 February 1936.


issue 31 of the Gaskell Society newsletter. March 2001. Skrine, Peter. ‘Peccavi.’ [Catherine Winkworth; R.H. Watts. Gaskell Memorial Tower, Knutsford]. [illus.] p7-9.

Thanks. -- Carbon Caryatid (talk) 12:40, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

The Gaskell Society says, "If you wish to obtain a back copy of a Newsletter, or a copy of an article, please use the “Contact Us” form with your email address and we will advise on availability and cost." There is a good chance that they would supply a scan of the article free to help Wikipedia. John M Baker (talk) 22:33, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
@Carbon Caryatid:For the Guardian article -- This is on Page 6 (1 page), if you can find a paper archive. You can find it here in the digital archive of The Guardian (previously known as The Manchester Guardian). Based on Ulrich's info it appears to me that only the Guardian's digital archive will go back to 1936.Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 17:42, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks both! I'll approach the Gaskell Society. Does anyone have access to the Guardian's digital archive? Carbon Caryatid (talk) 17:52, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
@Carbon Caryatid: It's available on Proquest archiver, which I don't have access to. Hopefully someone else does. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 19:54, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
  • I have changed the header on this section to alert people who may have access to this Guardian article. Softlavender (talk) 10:12, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Carbon Caryatid, are you still looking for this? I see you have already cited it in the wiki article; are you still nonetheless looking for a copy of it? Softlavender (talk) 11:49, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for reminding me of this quest, which had slipped off my radar. If I used it in our article, that must have been from a Google snippet view. Yes please I would like to read the whole thing. Carbon Caryatid (talk) 20:43, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

May 2016[edit]

2010 article from The Mining Journal[edit]

Could anyone please send me this article in The Mining Journal?Zigzig20s (talk) 13:39, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Finding source in 1932 issue of Paradise of the Pacific[edit]

Can anybody help me find the exact page numbers, author and section/article of this part of the Paradise of the Pacific along with a pdf copy of the relevant pages?

--KAVEBEAR (talk) 23:23, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

  • KAVEBEAR, since no one has replied, I would just cite the page number, and provide the snippet view as the hyperlink. If the only info you are citing is that tiny mention, you don't need article title and author for proof (and you don't have to use the codes to create a citation). (PS: I added to the section header here for clarification). Unfortunately I'm not sure you are going to get any further help on this RX page. Softlavender (talk) 10:32, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
It is not a problem of citation. I want to read the entire article as well. Hopefully someone out there may have access to this in a nearby library or has interlibrary loan options.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 00:55, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
  • The relevant citation is Olaf Oswald, “Whither Hawaii?” Paradise of the Pacific Vol. 45(8), Aug. 1932, pp. 5–8, 20–22. - NQ (talk) 11:54, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Lance Rose (???). "BBS Burnings" in the "Legally Online" column for Boardwatch Magazine. September issue, 1993. Page 62-ish. ((Possibly this is not even available anywhere...))
  • For research in creating article on aforementioned AA BBS. -- dsprc [talk] 20:28, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
@Dsprc: Few libraries have issues before 1999, from which point electronic versions are widely available. Only five have print copies from as far back as 1993: Library of Congress, Cornell University, Clemson University, University of Virginia, and Harry Ransom Center. Your best bet may be to reach out directly to active Wikipedians who have declared a connection with one of those sites. At Cornell, for example, perhaps Cornellrockey or EVDiam would be willing to help. --Worldbruce (talk) 06:44, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
Pong ball in flight.svg Worldbruce: Thanks. How does one find which institutions maintain archives? As an aside: I know Jason Scott of the Internet Archive are in physical possession of every issue and edition but they've yet to be digitised and are sitting stacked in a cargo container. -- dsprc [talk] 09:35, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
@Dsprc: is the most common starting point. Coverage of boutique libraries (genealogical, museum, philatelic, etc.) and those in developing countries (like India) is spotty, but for most searches it's invaluable. After that it's donkey work. To discover precisely which issues of a journal a particular library holds, one usually has to visit each individual catalog. --Worldbruce (talk) 13:13, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Dsprc, you might want to utilize It is a pay-service, but if the item is a must-have, it may be worth it. They have access to the Library of Congress, etc. (I learned about them from a Wikipedia user, and used them to obtain an obscure 1980 newspaper article I had been needing for many years.)

Note that pdfs can be found on the net with the same title, but actually include a different, 1987 paper by the same authors... FunkMonk (talk) 03:36, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

@FunkMonk: Sent pachycephalosaurid dinosaurs. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 04:23, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! Your help has really helped me get a grasp of the history of the subject... I think we might get an FA out of this! I guess the rest must be really hard to find... FunkMonk (talk) 04:27, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
  • FunkMonk, do you still need "On Troodon validus"? If so, it's probably best to move that title down to your new thread (and then this thread can be closed). Softlavender (talk) 11:52, 3 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, but I've lost hope it will be found... I have instead summarised the paper by using sources that cite it. FunkMonk (talk) 11:56, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

--Senra (talk) 02:02, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Senra, while I don't have access to the Parliamentary Papers, I note that there is no inconsistency between your two sources. The July 1903 announcement of the civil list was for pensions granted during the year ended March 31, 1903, which obviously would include most of 1902. See, e.g., Leeds and Yorkshire Mercury, July 10, 1903, p. 8 (British Newspaper Archive). John M Baker (talk) 23:25, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
John M Baker: Thank you for the insight but I would still like to see the text of the Parliamentary Papers, if possible, to see if there is anything I missed. Senra (talk) 19:20, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

@Senra: Is this still open? I'll try to help Doc Taxon (talk) 11:02, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

@Doc Taxon: Yes indeed. If you can help, please do. --Senra (talk) 23:07, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Cartoon network freak, it's generally best to mention the source (in this case apparently Oricon's Sales Site) in your header so people will see that. Many people only read the headers of these requests. Softlavender (talk) 22:49, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

I can't find it on a search of The Guardian Digital Archives]...

--Eversync (talk) 15:23, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Access World News confirms that the article was published in the Guardian on that date. This database does not provide PDFs or give page numbers, but the text it provides appears to be the same as on the Mental Magazine site. John M Baker (talk) 15:42, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. Wonder why it doesn't appear in the Guardian Archive site or actually on the main site where I eventually got to 23rd Jan 2003 but it only shows a physicist who passed nuclear secrets to the soviets I guess I'll assume they failed to digitise/archive every single obituary. Thanks again. Eversync (talk) 16:16, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
Their website says that some articles were not included because of copyright issues. I don't know why that would be a problem for the Guardian's own database, but not for Newsbank. John M Baker (talk) 18:27, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
Yes strange. Btw any chance Newsbank uses a permanent-type URL for that record, to include in the citation here as a validator, even though not everyone could access it? Eversync (talk) 20:27, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
It looks like the URL would be I access through a library proxy, so I can't verify that myself, but that's included in the APA citation that Newsbank provides. John M Baker (talk) 20:54, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

A couple of pages from Essential Solitude[edit]

I would like a scan of a couple of pages of Essential Solitude: The Letters of H.P. Lovecraft and August Derleth (Hippocampus Books, 2008). I can see a quote on Google Books as follows: "Just had word of the revival of Astounding Stories (as a largely weird magazine) by Street & Smith. That sounds good! .... I knew that someone had bought it, one T. R. Foley, for $100.00 from the defunct Clayton outfit. He also bought Clues; this..." It seems to be on page 600; I would like enough surrounding information to be able to cite the source -- who wrote the letter and when.

This is for Astounding Stories, to include the information about Foley and the price of the sale, which I haven't seen in any other source. Thanks -- Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 23:52, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

The Times articles from 1973[edit]

Hi, I'd need the following articles from The Times to extend the reception section of An Imaginary Report on an American Rock Festival:

  • Lipsius, Frank: 27 Apr 1973 (an article about Hungarian puppet and youth theatre)
  • Mills, Bart: "Altamont or Montana" (presumably), 28 July 1973

(The two users with documented access seem to be inactive; @Mirv and Moswento:.) Thanks in advance. – Máté (talk) 18:23, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

@Máté: I paged through pdfs of the entire 36- and 24-page issues of The Times (London) for 27 April 1973 and 28 July 1973. They contain no such articles. Searching Gale's full text archive of the paper by various methods - author, title, subject, and the keys "Gábor Presser", "An Imaginary Report", and "American Rock Festival" - returned one result that might be helpful: Ungvary, Tamas; Almasi, Miklos; Szanto, Judit (18 December 1973). "Hungary Today: A Cultural Review". The Times. London. 
It contains about 700 words by Ungvary on An imaginary Report on an American Pop Festival, evidently at the Vígszínház theatre in Budapest. It mentions Altamont and Gabor Presser, and contains the tantalizing text: "That is, the stars were not right for the Vigszinhaz pop-festival. But as Times readers are aware as well, thanks to an accurate report by Frank Lipsius, the success was extraordinary". I don't know much about the format of The Times in the '70s. Might Lipsius (and Mills) have written in a weekly or monthly supplement that subscribers would have received, but wouldn't have been cataloged and indexed as The Times?
Email me if you would like a pdf of the 18 December 1973 article. --Worldbruce (talk) 04:46, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
@Worldbruce: Thank you for your effort! It got its English title only in the 1980s, so I don't know how they referred to it. The source for the existence of the two articles (in Hungarian): Lipsius p. 38, Mills. (E-mail sent.) – Máté (talk) 05:01, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
@Máté: Sent the 18 December 1973 article that I found. I'll keep trying to get access to any supplements that might match up with the sources you provided. --Worldbruce (talk) 13:37, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Flournoy, Craig, Book Review Dallas Morning News, March 1, 2006.


As detailed in Philip's blog Craig Flournoy of the Dallas Morning News gave a review around 2006 (I don't know the date) - The same blog also says D Magazine wrote about it --WhisperToMe (talk) 07:36, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: The D Magazine article is here, and the Dallas Morning News article might be: "Remembering what our city would rather forget,” March 1, 2006 (according to the author's Wiki page). --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 12:24, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
@MrLinkinPark333: That's probably it. I would like to have it too. Thank you so much! WhisperToMe (talk) 12:50, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: Unfortunately, I don't have access to it. I added it to the request above. Did you see the D Magazine link i provided? --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 12:54, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
I see the D Magazine link WhisperToMe (talk) 15:51, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: NewsBank and EBSCO both cover the Dallas Morning News for that date, but neither contains an article by that title on that date, nor does searching by Craig Flournoy or "White Metropolis" return a match for the review on any date. This archived version of the book's website contains a now-dead link to the review that suggests it may have appeared on the newspaper's entertainment website rather than in the actual newspaper, although only someone with access to a physical copy would be able to prove the negative. You might try asking Flournoy for a copy. --Worldbruce (talk) 22:54, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
@Worldbruce: Please note I included the presumed headline/date to the Dallas Morning News on a guess. It could be the wrong title name though, so I adjusted it based on the link you provided.--MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 04:23, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Clay 2011, "Sappho, Selanna, and the Poetry of the Night"[edit]

I'm looking for a copy of Diskin Clay (2011), "Sappho, Selanna, and the Poetry of the Night". I've found an online version here, but I don't have access.

I would be using it to improve wikipedia's coverage of Sappho, especially for Midnight poem. Caeciliusinhorto (talk) 08:34, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Sputnik magazine, July 1970[edit]

I'm trying to find a copy of Sputnik, July 1970. It was a Soviet magazine similar to Reader's Digest, and was published by Novosti. Apparently it was published in a few languages; the English copy would be preferred, but any of them would be great.

It's only required for the article in it on the Spaceship Moon theory (not my word!). Apparently this article was titled "IS THE MOON THE CREATION OF INTELLIGENCE?" and was by Mikhail Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov. We currently have an apparent copy of it hosted on a fringe site,[6] but obviously we can't treat that copy as reliable.

It's for use in Spaceship Moon Theory article. Cheers, Bromley86 (talk) 22:53, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

It looks like the only worldcat libraries that hold the issue are Cornell and NYU. --Worldbruce (talk) 03:00, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

There's a partial over on Google Books. Perhaps it contains the pages you need? Bromley86 (talk) 00:39, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
The preview doesn't have every page under "American" in the index.--Prisencolin (talk) 02:40, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
@Prisencolin: If you need a specific page, let me know. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 02:49, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Could you do all of them listed under "Americans"? If that's too much then just the first few of those would do.--Prisencolin (talk) 03:06, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
@Prisencolin: I have the first four. Please send me an email, and let me know if those pages are useful or not. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 03:36, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
@MrLinkinPark333:, sent.--Prisencolin (talk) 17:35, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Please check The Times article that demands subscription[edit]

Can anybody with access to The Times please check if Shamash, Jack (March 6, 2004). "Yiddish once again speaks for itself".  is the source for this paragraph in the Yiddish article?

Note: I am aware the article number is not the same, but since 1. an article with that number doesn't exist in their archives, 2. the structure of that website's pages has been changed, and 3. this is the only article that seems to be discussing the same subject, I wonder if perhaps this is the same article or if it at least contains the same information relevant to the "Yiddish" article. Debresser (talk) 21:31, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Debresser, the article is generally supportive of the statements made in the first two sentences of that paragraph, but the geographical information in the paragraph is more detailed than that in the article. If you send me an email, I can reply with a PDF of the article. John M Baker (talk) 16:02, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
I couldn't find your email address on your userpage. I did find your email address at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, LLP as well as at the Fundlaw Yahoo Groups, but somehow I wasn't sure you'd be thrilled to receive Wikipedia related mail at those addresses. Debresser (talk) 18:13, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Debresser, you can email me (or any other Wikipedian who has activated email) by going to my user or talk page and clicking on "Email this user" under "Tools" in the left-hand margin. It's also fine if you email me at Stradley Ronon or FundLaw. John M Baker (talk) 18:37, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Wow. Thanks. Apparently I hardly ever felt the need to contact Wikipedia editors via their emails. Debresser (talk) 21:00, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Debresser: Yes, the Wikipedia email function can be helpful at times, although it does not accept attachments. Your article has been sent. John M Baker (talk) 21:52, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. I am now convinced that this is indeed the article that was the source for that paragraph. By the way, that doesn't mean the paragraph represents its source correctly in all details.[7] Debresser (talk) 22:50, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Need an Audio article for article currently working on[edit]

I was searching on google books for sources on Amor Prohibido and came across a 1995 article in Audio on its production that would be essential to have. If anyone can provide me the full article it will be very much appreciated. Thanks – jona 19:13, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

From the limited amount of context in the snippet, I'm guessing you need Keele Jr., D. B. (August 1995). "Paradigm Eclipse/BP speaker". Audio. Vol. 79 no. 8. p. 48-53. ISSN 0004-752X.  The abstract is in EBSCO MasterFILE Complete–not sure if that implies the full text is in one of the many other EBSCO databases. I don't have ready access to them, but someone else might. --Worldbruce (talk) 02:37, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
@Worldbruce: Thank you, hopefully someone can provide me the text now. Best – jona 16:58, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

Two articles from (for animated short film)[edit]

I'm currently in the process of creating an article in my sandbox for an animated short film called Le Building. appears to have two articles of use: "Cool 2 Know the List", published by Newsday on January 11, 2006 and "Animation fest bigger, better than ever at 30", published by The News-Gazette, published on October 1, 2006. These articles may or may not actually mention the film itself by name, but should at the very least mention the film's directors ( Marco Nguyen, Pierre Perifel, Xavier Ramonède, Olivier Staphylas, and Rémi Zaarour) Could someone pass these along to me? Thanks. --Jpcase (talk) 16:49, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

Help needed in accessing source from Taiwanese / Chinese website[edit]

As mentioned in the request directly above, I'm working on an article in my sandbox about an animated short film called Le Building. One of the filmmakers (Olivier Staphylas) was interviewed by Taiwanese magazine XFuns in issue #21, published December 2005. I've happened across what appears to be a legitimate Taiwanese or Chinese website, called airitibooks, offering a preview of this particular issue. [8] The magazine's text includes English, but unfortunately, the information on Le Building is on one of the final pages, and the website's preview ends on page 10. In order to access the rest of the issue, I'll need an account, and apparently accounts are only available through one of the libraries specified here. I don't have access to any of these libraries. I've checked the website's FAQ page, to see if there are any other options available to me. For some reason though, when I select the website's English-language option, it fails to translate the FAQ. Could somebody fluent in the language (Google Translate is only telling me that the website is written in "Chinese", so I'm afraid I can't say whether it's Mandarin or Cantonese) give me an overview of the relevant details? Is there any way to access the full issue, without belonging to one of the specified libraries? If not, is there anyone here with access to one of those libraries, who would be able to help me out? --Jpcase (talk) 17:29, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
