  • 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.
  • If you are requesting multiple sources, #number them (1, 2, 3..)

Fulfilling a request[edit]

  • Anyone may offer advice and fulfill requests.
  • Ask questions and offer replies in the request section.
  • 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}}

Pierre Clastres[edit]

Is this the complete version of the review? If it is not, I want to have access as it is listed on the further reading section of Pierre Clastres, which I would like to improve. If possible, also "Sorrows of the Civilised Warrior" from Tiqqun‍ '​s This is Not a Program, which the other article listed on further reading that I have not access to. --Gabriel Yuji (talk) 03:31, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Gabriel Yuji, I've sent you the complete review from the New York Review of Books. - NQ (talk) 05:37, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
"Sorrows of the Civilised Warrior" Yes Sent - NQ (talk) 05:42, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you very much!! ... And sorry for not asking before but the book L'anti-autoritarisme en ethnologie has some material on Clastres. However, I've realized now that pages 105, 106, 111, 113 and 114 are missing. I don't know if it's possible to find it but I would appreciate if you could get them. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 17:09, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

NQ Instead of creating a new topic I'm requesting here, is it fine? I'd love to have access to page 311 of The Routledge Dictionary of Anthropologists for info on Clastres biography, which is the less developed part in the Wikipedia article as you can see. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 01:51, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Nevermind. I've just found it here.
However, I'd like to make a question: can I add the link of Google Drive documents you've send me at the "url" parameter? Gabriel Yuji (talk) 02:08, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
@Gabriel Yuji: Answered here - NQ (talk) 03:38, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for the mess... However, I'd like to request page 68 of this book and 237 of this one. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 02:46, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
@Gabriel Yuji: Yes Sent - NQ (talk) 03:38, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

And how about the Encyclopædia Universalis article on Clastres: I'd like to have full access to it. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 20:06, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

@Gabriel Yuji: Mail. - NQ (talk) 06:21, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Maybe I'm exaggerating on the amount of my requests but this page is essential as it apparently have info on "Mythes et rites des Indiens d'Amérique du Sud" and on "L'économie primitive". Also, this one as it contains something about "Le clou de la croisière". It has been tough to find info on their publication. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 23:40, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Articles about the Japanese Language Supplementary School of Queensland[edit]

For: Japanese Language Supplementary School of Queensland --WhisperToMe (talk) 11:59, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: The first one is not included in the list of papers published by the Australian Association for Research in Education as part of the 2002 Conference. Not sure if it's available online. - NQ (talk) 23:15, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

@NQ: Then The University of Queensland listing must have made a mistake of some sort? - Does it mean it was published as part of a different conference? WhisperToMe (talk) 23:50, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: I did some further digging, the conference website carries only select papers from the 2002 conference. The Queensland uni listing mentions it being a published paper. UQ eSpace might have it on file. I'll try to get in touch with a few people who might have access.- NQ (talk) 00:02, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Reference work material on Emperor Jimmu[edit]

Basically looking for any "reference" type works, be they encyclopedic or history or similar works broadly considered "reference works," discussing at length, either as the main topic of the piece or as a multi-page section in a broader work, the mythic Emperor Jimmu of Japan, for use in developing that article and related articles. -John Carter (talk) 19:17, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

@John Carter: I have a copy of Brownlee, John S, Japanese Historians and the National Myths, 1600-1945: The Age of the Gods and Emperor Jinmu if you need any extracts not in the Google Books entry. Jbh (talk) 20:25, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Um, what exactly do you mean by "have a copy" here? :) The book appears to have been rather well received, which is definitely a plus, and I would definitely welcome any input from that source in the article when we get to that point. But if it is a physical copy, which you seem to imply, it might be harder to distribute around to all the others who might be involved. I may well ping you when I get to the point of opening discussion on the article talk page when I get to that point. John Carter (talk) 20:39, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
It is a PDF so pages can be extracted as needed. Jbh (talk) 20:43, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
That sounds very useful. My first "goal" is to more or less see what other encyclopedias and similar short reference articles might say, as an indicator of what sort of things need to be covered in the Jimmu article, early indicators of relative weight in that article, and that sort of thing, basically getting material together to develop an "outline" of sorts for the article. But I have a feeling that source you have would be a much more useful and acceptable citation source than the reference overview articles might be. But that might come second to seeing what is discussed in the other recent extant encyclopedia type sources, and the relative weight they give the material they do include. John Carter (talk) 20:52, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
OK. Ping me or email me if you need anything from the book. I also have access to JSTOR and saw several references to Emperor Jimmu but most seemed tangential on first inspection. If you find anything there you need help getting let me know. I did a quick look for other references, there was only a footnote mentioning him in my Cambridge History of Japan which surprised me. Jbh (talk) 21:22, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
@John Carter: Send me an email and I'll reply with PDFs of Brownlee, Why Prewar Japanese Historians Did Not Tell the Truth, and Ōbayashi Taryō, Japanese Myths of Descent from Heaven and Their Korean Parallels. Note to others who might do searches: The spelling Jinmu is more common in the literature. John M Baker (talk) 17:35, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
@John Carter: Are you still interested in this? John M Baker (talk) 14:07, 4 May 2015 (UTC)


Fujisaki, Ryu (2010). Wāqwāq 4. San Francisco, California: Viz Media. ISBN 978-1-4215-2741-3. OCLC 435420960. 

I know (through this review) that there is some Ryu Fujisaki's commentary on the production of Wāqwāq (or art least its art) in an endnote of the above citedd book. I'd like (if possible) to have access to it. I know that it's probably available on a library but I'm not from North America, then unfortunately I cannot have access to it hereby. Thanks in advance. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 21:45, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

@Gabriel Yuji: The entire waqwaq series is available here Chapters 26-34 covers volume 4. - NQ (talk) 16:58, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
@NQ:. Yeah, I've already found the complete series online. The problem is that the endnotes mentioned by the source ("he mentions in the endnotes how difficult this series was to draw") are not available (or at least I couldn't find them) on Internet... Thanks, anyway! Gabriel Yuji (talk) 00:51, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
@Gabriel Yuji: The only available version online that includes all the pages from the book series are the ones you'd have to purchase. (itunes) - NQ (talk) 03:54, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Geology, Hydrology, and Geochemistry of the Black Creek Watershed Near Mocanaqua, PA.[edit]

Hello! The book that I needed access to: Newport, Thomas G. (1971). Geology, Hydrology, and Geochemistry of the Black Creek Watershed Near Mocanaqua, PA. Black Creek (Susquehanna River) is in the process of a GA review, and the book constitutes for a significant number of its citations. If at all possible someone can e-mail the book to me at Thanks! LeftAire (talk) 17:40, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

According to this the electronic form is not available, the proper title is Geology, hydrology, and geochemistry of the Black Creek watershed near Mocanaqua, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania and it was published in 1968. This also shows as OCLC 50317392. The FAQ at the USGS says under "How do I obtain a copy of a specific publication?/ How do I obtain a publication that is not available online?"
"USGS Publication: Links to the USGS store will be added shortly for publications that have paper versions in stock. You can also contact the USGS Store to order the publication. The USGS Store is available at and they can be contacted via email: ; telephone: 1-888-ASK-USGS; and mail: USGS Information Services, Box 25286, Federal Center, Denver, CO 80225-0046. If it is not available, try searching the title online to find a copy for sale or contact your local librarian to see if they can help you borrow a copy."
I'd suggest the email or phone query is your best bet. Their store's search engine doesn't seem to find it. LeadSongDog come howl! 21:08, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
I'll give this a shot, too. LeftAire (talk) 21:31, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
[ec] This is USGS Open-File Report 71-343, with something like 177 pages ("leaves") and 54 plates, but unfortunately the USGS does not have a digital version. Google Book seems to have missed this item (not in any large library?), so it seems doubtful there is anything that can be e-mailed. WorldCat (oddly) shows no library listings. The editor citing this item presumably had access to it; have you inquired there? ~ J. Johnson (JJ) (talk) 21:14, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
I have. He said that I would likely have to access via library loan. I don't know how soon I would be able to access the library, though. Hopefully sometime this weekend...LeftAire (talk) 21:22, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

An Open Question on Articles (Possibly Remotely) Related to the MRB constant[edit]

I can scholar MRB constant and get a couple of references that mention it by name. However, I would like to know what, if any, other articles use the formulas that the MRB constant is derived from, or slight variations of those formulas. Four formulas are found in the Wiki article MRB constant. Other, more promising of finding related formulas, formulas are found on page 29 of the following URL: .

Looking for French Obituary from 1968 or 1969 for Astronomer Rose Bonnet[edit]

I am working on an article on an early 20th century french astronomer named Rose Bonnet. Most of the information I've found on her life has been from academic articles (with a few exceptions). I would like to locate an obituary for her to fill in some missing details in her life.

She was born in 1894 and died in 1968 or 1969, most likely at her home in Paris (83—Street number, Rue de la Liberation—Street, Clamart—Commune, Antony—Arrondissement, Hauts-de-Seine—Department, Sud de Seine—Intercommunality, Île-de-France—Region). She spent her career (from 1919 to 1959) at the Paris Observatory. She was a member of the International Astronomy Union and Société Astronomique de France. She married Louis Sainturier in 1932 or 1933, and used "Bonnet-Sainturier" or "Bonnet" thereafter (except for a brief period during the Nazi occupation of France).

I have searched and searched on Google, Google Scholar, Google Books, Bing,, and even ventured into the frightening domain of a Brick and Mortar University Library! But to no avail. I suspect the information exists, but is buried in some French newspaper archives that my Google Translate lack of fluency with the language has hidden from me.

I appreciate any help anyone can give--Carl Henderson (talk) 04:23, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

  • I searched but didn't find anything. Perhaps try asking at fr-wp? They've an equivalent to this page, Vérification en bibliothèque, though it isn't particularly active and is more for requests to verify against a source than obtain a copy of it. The Oracle (Reference Desk) is probably the best option for asking about la nécrologie de Rose Bonnet. – (talk) 18:22, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Thank you very much for looking. Asking at the French Wikipedia is a good idea. I don't speak French however, so I hope they are okay with Google-translate attempts at their language. Carl Henderson (talk) 19:38, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Alain Menargues, Les Secrets de la guerre du Liban[edit]

If someone can help with the following reference, would be great.

Alain Menargues, Les Secrets de la guerre du Liban pp. 469-70

I am interested in what he says about Sayeret Metkal and the Sabra and Shatila camps.

This is for the article: Sabra and Shatila massacre. Kingsindian  11:57, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

It's by fr:Alain Ménargues (no English wp article Alain Ménargues yet, hint, hint...). OCLC 55144464 and other editions shows 6 French and 1 Arabic versions from 2004, with about 60 libraries holding copies. OCLC 855334112 shows a 2013 second edition, revised and corrected. LeadSongDog come howl! 16:14, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
@LeadSongDog: Thanks. I am interested in getting a view of page 469 (470 is available in Google Books). Is it possible to get this somehow? I am afraid I am not familiar with OCLC much. Kingsindian  10:27, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
  • @Kingsindian: The extract you are searching for is cited here. I cannot however vouch for the accuracy of the reproduction, but at first glance, it seems to be the same as what can be seen in google snippets. - NQ (talk) 11:19, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
@NQ: Thanks a lot. That is very helpful. If someone else can supply the actual page view somehow, it would be nice, otherwise, this can be marked as "resolved". Kingsindian  11:30, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
It is written :
La première série de liquidations de civils palestiniens dans Sabra et Chatila se termina en fin d'après-midi, lorsque les groupes du Sayeret Mat'kal israéliens quittèrent les camps aussi discrètement qu'ils y étaient entrés.[18] Le massacre avait commencé. Deux autres groupes devaient prendre le relais.

@Pluto2012: If I am not mistaken, you are quoting from page 470. I am intersted in the previous page, the content just before that. The extract cited by NQ confirms what I wanted to see, but since it is just a blog post, I just wanted to check if there was some way I could see the text on the page itself. Thanks for your help, anyway. Kingsindian  11:23, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
Ce même 15 septembre, dès son arrivée sur l’aéroport de Beyrouth à 15 h 30, le sergent Benny Haïm fit mouvement avec son unité du Sayeret Mat'kal vers le nord, d'abord en camion, puis à pied « non loin du camp de Chatila ». Vers 17 h 30, Benny Haïm fut blessé à la jambe et au bras gauche. L'infirmier de son groupe se précipita et sectionna les bretelles de son porte-chargeur, « craignant que les grenades qui se trouvaient dans les poches n'explosent, et le jeta au loin » (3). Dans l'une d'elles se trouvaient les papiers d’identité du sous-officier. Le brêlage fut découvert plus tard dans une rue de Chatila. Ces soldats, dont plusieurs étaient blonds et avaient les yeux bleus, exécutèrent ainsi 63 intellectuels palestiniens, hommes et femmes de toute évidence fichés. Tous avocats, médecins, enseignants et infirmières.

Will it be possible to verify that the following text's source is: Middle East Journal, Vol. 42, No. 2 (Spring, 1988), page=240

"instead of prudently recognizing this reality and accepting the relatively favorable 1939 White Paper, or compromising with the Zionists, the Mufti shifted to a policy of active and futile opposition and rejection. In short, moderation during the Palestine phase and rejection during the exile phase contributed to the ultimate defeat of the Palestinians"

Some requests[edit]

I have a few requests, and wondering if anyone has access to the following sources and can help:

  • Cunliffe, Marcus (1956) History of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment: 1919-1955

I am looking for information that states what the 14th Battalion was up to between December 1941 and October 1942? Hopefully, it will provide some information that will help clarify the role of the 77th Infantry Division during this period: beach defense/anti-invasion duties etc. It appears the information is on 67, 69, and 71. Only a portion of 67 is available on Googlebooks, but no context is able to be gleaned.

  • Clowes (1956) The York and Lancaster Regiment: Sheffield, O. F. 1919-1953 / Sheffield, O. F. (1930–1956). The York and Lancaster Regiment, 1758–1953 III. Butler & Tanner. OCLC 39831761.

Starting on p. 267 is a chapter on the 11th Battalion. This battalion was part of the 76th Infantry Division during 1942 and 1943, when it was transferred to the 77th Division until July 1944. From what i can see on Googlebooks snippet view, the former is mentioned on p. 269, but little else can be seen. During its time with the 77th, the division changed from a "reserve" training unit to a "holding" division. Does this chapter provide any information that would be useful to either article to expand on the role of these two divisions, especially the "holding" aspect of the 77th?

  • Butler, Lewis William George (1971) The Annals of the King's Royal Rifle Corps, Volume 6

During 1943, the 10th Battalion was assigned to the division. Snippet view does not seem to show anything relevant. Does anyone have access to this source? If so, does anything explain the presumably training nature of the battalions role with the division and the 11th Army Tank Brigade?

Kind regards, EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 22:57, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

@EnigmaMcmxc: 67, 69-71 emailed. Please check and let me know if it's what you're looking for. - NQ (talk) 14:48, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Sexual calling in ants[edit]

Seeking two articles on Ralph Vary Chamberlin[edit]

I'm trying to bring Ralph Vary Chamberlin up to GA or FA, and am seeking some offline sources:

  1. Jones, David T. (1944). "List of publications of Dr. Ralph V. Chamberlin to June 1st, 1944.". Vintonia 4: 1–22. OCLC 4171096. 
  2. Uschi Eckstein & Robert Samm (2001). "Beruehmte Arachnologen: Ralph Vary Chamberlin, 1879-1967. [Famous arachnologists: Ralph Vary Chamberlin, 1879-1967.]". Arachnologisches Magazin (in German) 9 (5): 11–12. ISSN 0944-8667. 

If the Arachnologisches Magazin article could possibly be scanned in OCR, that would greatly facilitate machine translation, as I don't speak German. Thanks! --Animalparty-- (talk) 20:39, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

@Animalparty: de:WP:BIBA might be able to help you with this a lot faster. - NQ (talk) 21:50, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
