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 copy requests due to copyright. Please ask for specific pages that relate to the article(s) you need them for
  • 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://... )
    • share scans of pages or documents using a file-sharing service, provided it is legal
    • upload out of copyright works to Wikimedia Commons and/ or Wikisource (but be careful that this does not breach your own institution's policies)
    • 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.

SERNAGEOMIN/Geological Map of Chile[edit]

Greetings, has someone access to this publication? "Naranjo, J.A.; Villa, V; Venegas, C. 2013b. Geología de las áreas Salar de Aguilar y Portezuelo del León Muerto, Región de Atacama. Servicio Nacional de Geología y Minería, Carta Geológica de Chile, Serie Geología Básica 151-152, 1 mapa escala 1:100.000. Santiago."

Thanks, Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 21:32, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

What is the year number and volume number for this? Is 151-152 the page number? – b_jonas 12:36, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
@B jonas:Sorry for the delay in responding. According to [1] 151-152 is the issue. The ISSN is ISSN 0717-7283 if that helps. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 17:49, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
@Jo-Jo Eumerus: Requested via ILL. I'll hold this request open for a month, since it's about to archive. Compassionate727 (T·C) 18:42, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks much Compassionate727. There is another request on SERNAGEOMIN posted below FYI. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 19:37, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

────────── @Jo-Jo Eumerus: According to my college's librarians, they could only find one resource that was even close to this, a CD-ROM in Spain. They say they can ask, but that the institution probably will not lend it. Is this information going to be particularly helpful, or should I tell them to forget about it? Alternatively, because they don't seem to be confident that they found the right thing, we might get a better result if you tell me where you found this citation. Compassionate727 (T·C) 14:56, 29 October 2019 (UTC)

@Compassionate727:It was through this article which implies that that source talks about the volcanoes in the area, hence the request. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 15:10, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
@Jo-Jo Eumerus: Well, being a mere second-year college student, I am not especially confident in my ability to read less common types of citations, but I am guessing from the short page range (two pages) and the fact that the citation even mentions: "1 mapa escala 1:100.000 [1 map, scale 1:100,000]" that this source (and the similar one dated 2013a) that both of these sources are only maps. Moreover, all three statements attributed to those two sources appear to just describe the distribution of various types of volcanic rock in the formation, which is exactly what I would expect a map of volcanoes to depict. So if you are hoping for a journal article, I don't think that's what this is. Would the maps be useful to you? Like I said, my institution can ask to borrow this, but the owner probably won't lend it, and I see no reason to bother unless you're expecting something useful. Compassionate727 (T·C) 16:23, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
@Compassionate727:Hrm, good question. Sometimes maps turned out to be useful. I suspect a lot would depend on how detailed the legends of the map are. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 16:34, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
@Jo-Jo Eumerus: Alright, I have forwarded that article to my librarians and requested that they ask for the map. Compassionate727 (T·C) 18:42, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

Some articles from UK, US and Dutch game magazines[edit]

  • "Winx Club". PlayStation 2 Official Magazine — UK. April 2006.
  • "Winx Club: Join the Club". GamesMaster — UK. July 2007. ISSN 0967-9855.
  • "Winx Club: Mission Enchantix". NGamer. April 2008. ISSN 2049-4300.
  • "Winx Club". Gameplay. March 2006.
  • "Cabela's 4x4 Off-Road Adventure". PC Gamer (US). May 2001.

Hello guys, looking for particular reviews from some old game magazines. I have articles about those games in Russian Wikipedia, which I want to improve further. There's no point in asking there, no one from Russian Wikipedia posseses these magazines. And of course we don't have libraries with such magazines in Russia. Hoping to find some luck here.

Thanks, Coolak (talk) 06:17, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

@Coolak, might want to try asking at WT:VG too czar 16:24, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
@Coolak: I've requested these via ILL. We'll see what happens. Compassionate727 (T·C) 18:36, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
@Coolak: An update on the progress of this request: my librarians say they have not been able to find a lender for these magazines; I'm not sure what kind of lender they mean by that statement, as they indicated that the next step would be to ask archives in the UK, which I have asked that they do. They didn't give any strong indication, but it sounds like they aren't particularly confident they'll be able to find all of these artices; whatever they do find will probably take three or four weeks for them to arrive. Compassionate727 (T·C) 18:45, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
@Compassionate727: Thank you very much for your effort in any case. Coolak (talk) 20:27, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
@Coolak: Please send me an email for the PC Gamer article. Compassionate727 (T·C) 18:14, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Need a German language resource and for it to be translated please[edit]

I need Page 150 from "Rennbahn Oerlikon - 100 Jahre Faszination Radsport" [edited?] by Peter Schnyder, AS-Verlag, Zürich 2012, ISBN 978-3-909111-95-4. I am looking for more information about the cyclist Ernst Feja who died in an accident on the Oerlikon track in 1927 for List of cyclists with a cycling-related death (Ernst Feja entry). I will need the information translated into English. Thanks, Shearonink (talk) 04:59, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Shearonink, I have some doubts this request - as it stands - will ever get filled since in addition to this book not being held widely by libraries outside of Switzerland, I am also not aware that any of the regular users of this page speak German (except for me, and I do not have the time to provide you with a translation unless it's just a sentence). On the other hand, if you can find another way to get it translated, I may be able to help you obtain a copy of the page. — Pajz (talk) 19:31, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
Ok thanks anyway. Shearonink (talk) 00:56, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

For Idrisid dynasty

Thanks, Kansas Bear (talk) 20:40, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

@Kansas Bear: I can't find either the book or the author in WorldCat. My guess is you're not going to have much luck with this one. Maybe come back in a six or twelve months? Compassionate727 (T·C) 13:12, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Kansas Bear, based on the description in the publisher's online shop (here), specifically the release model (via Google Translate: "BOOK IS THE FIRST 2 MONTHS EXCLUSIVELY FOR SALE VIA TASMIM.NL Then via Bol.com and Islamic bookshops."), I'm a bit doubtful if you will ever find that work in a research/public library. I would also note that there are few hints that this book project might not be an entirely scholarly endavour (the purpose of the book is described as helping people "find their identity"; there is no information whatsoever on the author; etc.), so - without making any statement on that issue myself - I think you might want to check again if this is a good source for a history-related article. Best, — Pajz (talk) 12:32, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

WBGconverse 15:58, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
@Winged Blades of Godric:Sometimes such sources with unintuitive titles have turned out to be useful. However, if the only mention of "Coropuna" is in the secondary literature list, then we might as well not bother. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 16:14, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
I checked the paper from a weird terminal (that does not allow you to do anything save hands-free viewing) but did not spot anything remotely relevant, as to the topic, on a rapid glance-through. There was a mention of the name in one of the sources over the bibliography, though.
If you do suspect strongly that the paper contains something relevant, I can get you mobile-photo-captures of the terminal screen within a couple of days ..... WBGconverse 17:49, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Actually, I just realized I was looking at the Daily Mirror, not the Daily Mail. Nevermind. This might help you, though. Not sure if they'll let you have a trial, but it's worth a shot. Compassionate727 (T·C) 13:43, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Perhaps OhanaUnited can help you obtain this article through the Daily Mail Historical Archive (U Toronto Libraries). — Pajz (talk) 10:04, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
@Pajz, Compassionate727, and Quuux: I can't attest to the validity of information in newspaper back in 1914, but I should point out that there was an RfC on using Daily Mail as reference and concluded that it should generally not be used as a source on Wikipedia. OhanaUnitedTalk page 01:36, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
@Quuux and OhanaUnited: The RfC closure acknowledges that "the Daily Mail may have been more reliable historically", so I think we're to use our best judgement on this one. (Unfortunately, we can't form a judgement without the actual source!) The original citation employed this syntax: {{Daily Mail|issue=5810|supp=|startpage=4|date=16 November 1914|issn = 0307-7578}}; Template:Daily Mail is redlinked. When I check the page logs, I see nothing, which would suggest that this template never existed, but it would be highly unusual for an erroneous link to a template that never existed to have an empty parameter, as this happens when someone copies and pastes the skeleton parameters from the template's documentation. @Jo-Jo Eumerus: would you check whether or not this page ever existed, and if it did, paste the last stable version into my sandbox? There's a slim chance I'll able to glean some of the missing bibliographic info from the template's code. Compassionate727 (T·C) 17:34, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
Checked and didn't find anything. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 18:51, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
Well, that leaves us back at square one. Because it doesn't look like we're going to be able to fix the citation or verify that the source is reliable, I think the play is to remove it, which I have done for now. I'll leave this open though in case anyone does find it. Compassionate727 (T·C) 21:10, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

Medieval Albania[edit]

  • Ducellier, Alain (1981). La façade maritime de l'Albanie au Moyen Age. Durazzo et Valona du ΧIe au XVe siècle [The Albanian Seaboard in the Middle Ages. Durazzo and Valona from the 11th to the 15th Century] (in French).

For Dyrrhachium (theme) and Duchy of Durazzo (Republic of Venice). Since this is a seminal work on the topic, if more material from this book can be provided apart from the chapters requested, all the better, as there are lots of articles that can benefit from it (e.g. Lordship of Valona).

A court order[edit]

Can anybody lead me to the final court order as described in this Stanford-News-piece ? I tried searching over FindLaw but in vain. Got this, FWIW. WBGconverse 09:25, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

For Norman Davies. Thanks, WBGconverse 09:14, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Winged Blades of Godric, the case cite is Davies v. Leland Stanford Junior University Board of Trustees, No. H 006734 (Cal. Ct. App., Sept. 3, 1991), pet. for review den., 1991 Cal. LEXIS 5612 (Dec. 11, 1991). Since the decision is unpublished, it is uncertain whether it is available through a legal database -- personally, I cannot find it in Lexis/Westlaw (but the scope of access varies) and https://appellatecases.courtinfo.ca.gov/search.cfm?dist=6 does not give a case citation, so you may ultimately need to get in touch with the clerk's office of the 6th District Court of Appeal. — Pajz (talk) 16:00, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Winged Blades of Godric, I wasn't able to find the order, but I did find a law review article that briefly discusses the case in a two-paragraph footnote. If that would be helpful to you, send me an email and I'll reply with a PDF. John M Baker (talk) 15:05, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

1980s California Ballot Measure Voting Data[edit]

I'm looking for detailed election data for California ballot measures going back to at least the 1980s. I'm specifically looking for a source to improve 1986 California Proposition 65, but the data I'm looking for could of course be used to improve any number of similar articles.

A Google search finds this archive from the California Secretary of State's office but that only goes back to 1990. I also found a UC Hastings database, which has pamphlets and other good resources on ballot measures but no detailed election data. And I checked over my local library's databases, as well as my alma mater's, and found nothing relevant.

Is anyone aware of a database that has detailed voting data for California ballot measures in the 1980s?

Free images of Jo Ann Kelly[edit]

I've been trying to find a copyright-free or Creative Commons photo of Jo Ann Kelly ("Jo-Ann Kelly" during her early career, 1960s) for her article and coming up empty. She died in 1990 so almost all the photos are from old magazine articles or liner notes of LP/CD releases. So generally under copyright and it's often not clear who is the copyright owner of various photos, much less how to contact them. Such images don't really fall under WP's non-free guidelines. I've come to the end of my abilities so any input would be extremely helpful. For Jo Ann Kelly

Thanks, Mark Ironie (talk) 22:15, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

Mark Ironie, perhaps you already know but under non-free guidelines a non-free historic portrait can be used in an article about a deceased person per WP:NFCC—see for example the header image of Sorley MacLean. Fiamh (talk, contribs) 09:35, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Unfortunately I do not know specific page numbers of the latter, but I wonder if the introductory section explains the purpose of the book and how/why entries were chosen. I would hope that this work is not just a random directory of companies but instead of a specially chosen/curated list of developments in the publishing industries of those countries, as in the work is choosing entries with a purpose in mind.

Greetings, has someone access to this publication - OCLC 55295539 For Laguna del Maule (volcano)

Thanks, Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 08:08, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

@Jo-Jo Eumerus: Requested via ILL. We'll see if my college actually is willing to import a map from Chile, though. Compassionate727 (T·C) 18:47, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
@Jo-Jo Eumerus: Ooh, received, and I'll wager it's more than you thought it was. The item "Hoja laguna del Maule: regiones del Maule y del bío bío" is actually the entire 64th issue of the Carta Geológica de Chile, almost 100 pages, accompanied by a map. Here's what I'll do: I'll scan and email you the table of contents, including the list of tables, figures, etc., and you can tell me what you are looking for. They also sent Nos. 60-61, "Hojas península de Taitao y Puerto Aisen: región Aisen del General Carlos Ibañez del Campo", and No. 62-63, "Hojas Taltal y Chañaral: regiones de Antofagasta y Atamaca", because all three (five?) issues are bundled into one fancily-packaged volume, so I'll send you the tables of contents for those as well, in case you want anything in those for any other articles.
Also, I will warn you that while I can try to scan and send you the maps (and I will, if you want them), the smallest one (the one for the issue you requested) is something like 2.5 feet by 2.5 feet, so I'm not sure how feasible that will be. Compassionate727 (T·C) 16:04, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
To clarify the timeframe, I thought I would just go over to the library after writing the above and scan it, but the binding makes it impossible to open the front cover past perpendicular to the back cover, so that wasn't going to work. I then thought to take photographs of the pages and send those, but holding the book open made it difficult to then hold my phone far enough back to get a good capture of the entire page, so I'm going to need to find a creative way of holding the book open without my hands. Unfortunately, I'm too tired today to think of creative solutions. Hopefully, this will happen tomorrow. Compassionate727 (T·C) 16:27, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
@Compassionate727:Oh. Well, the Puerto Aisen map definitively isn't necessary. Thanks for the effort. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk) 17:15, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

@Jo-Jo Eumerus: I can always ask. FWIW, I don't think this actually came from Chile, even though WorldCat doesn't show any other holdings, so it's possible that the librarians may be able to find a more local source for whatever you're wanting. Compassionate727 (T·C) 04:28, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
@Compassionate727:OK, thanks. The article in question is this one (archived version), for Nevado Sajama. I've been looking for that source for years. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk) 10:10, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
@Jo-Jo Eumerus: That is a thesis for a licenciatura (licentiate), a degree which in Bolivia seems roughly equivalent to a Master's; no wonder you haven't been able to find it. Quite apart from the fact that my library probably cannot obtain such an item, I rather doubt it meets RS requirements. (In particular, the fact that a "tutor" is listed along with the actual authors gives me pause.) Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:52, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
@Compassionate727:Huh. I've seen some other publications using it as a source (example) but if it can't be accessed w/o actually going to that university it's probably pointless. Thanks anyway. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk) 17:27, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

GIS dataset of the 2011 administrative boundaries of India[edit]

I'm aware that this is a somewhat unusual request, but that sort of data is sometimes provided by academic libraries (anybody have access to Harvard or Yale?), and I need it in order to create a series of language maps to be used in articles (beginning with these two). There is a relevant dataset at gadm.org, but the boundaries there don't always correspond to the ones at the time of the census (so I can't really pair it up with the census data). I'm particularly interested in administrative boundaries below the district level (i.e. tehsils/taluqs), as I already havea access (from [5]) to the corresponding dataset for the district level. If anyone obtains a copy, please check that the terms of use allow sharing in this form. Thanks! – Uanfala (talk) 20:55, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

@Uanfala: I don't know that anyone who regularly contributes sources here attends or works at either of those universities. FourViolas has offered to be contacted directly for Harvard resources, so you might leave a message on their talk page, but they only edit once every few months these days, so I wouldn't count on a timely response. Probably your best option, although it will, unfortunately, be somewhat time-intensive, is to scour Category:Wikipedians by alma mater: Harvard University and Category:Wikipedians by alma mater: Yale University and ask anyone who edits somewhat regularly if they have access. (Those categories include both current and former students, so you might check their user page before asking to see if they say whether or not they're graduates or current students; I doubt former students will have access, although I don't know about those institutions' policies specifically.) If you're really desperate, you could also ask Category:Wikipedian university teachers, although that category doesn't distinguish by institution and most people don't say where they teach on their user pages, so that's probably a crapshoot.

@Uanfala:I can view and download a dataset called "India : Sub-District Boundaries with Census Data, 2001". Excerpts of the metadata:
Abstract: This datalayer shows Sub-District (Tahsil/Taluka) boundaries of India for 2001. Includes Sub-District socio-demographic Census attribute data such as total population, population by sex, rural/urban populations, household, literacy, and employment statistics. This layer is part of the IndiaMap dataset which includes socio-demographic and economic Census data for 2001 at the State, District, Sub-District, and Town levels. This data layer is sourced from secondary government sources, chiefly Survey of India, Census of India, Election Commission, etc. Scale 1:1,000,000.
Purpose: These data are intended for researchers, students, and policy makers for reference and mapping purposes, and may be used for basic applications such as viewing, querying, and map output production.

I was waiting to receive a reply to my email to FourViolas before posting an update here. In short, I don't know for sure if that dataset has what I'm looking for (if it's got the language data from the census that will be great, if not, then I'll need to look for it from another source, as I wasn't able to find district-level language data for 2001 from the census website). If that doesn't work out, I'll follow the suggestions of Compassionate727 (thanks for that – these are really helpful). Still, before starting to approach individual editors, I was hoping this thread could stay open for a bit, in case somebody comes up with access to the resource (as I don't think it would be restricted to Harvard and Yale). – Uanfala (talk) 14:42, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
@Uanfala: sorry for not responding here earlier, but I sent you an email on Oct. 19th, with subject heading "Re: Wikipedia email from user "Uanfala": GIS dataset at the Resource Exchange". Did that not get through? FourViolas (talk) 17:17, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
Whoops, my bad: I've just found your email in my inbox (not sure how I've managed to miss it the first time round). Thanks for that, it will still probably be useful even though it doesn't contain language data. So, I'll need to either find district-level census data from the 2001 census, or a dataset of administrative boundaries as of the 2011 census (for which I've got the language data). – Uanfala (talk) 21:28, 29 October 2019 (UTC)

Science article behind paywall[edit]

I added a little bit to the article Garlock Fault using info in a couple news articles, both relying on a newly-published Science journal article (abstract URL). I included an inline reference for it. If someone who could access the Science article just to verify the content I added to the Garlock Fault article, that would be appreciated. A scholarly article is a much better reference in a science Wikipedia article than local news. I'm not particularly interested in adding much more to the fault article, so I don't need a copy of it, mainly just want someone to verify (if necessary, change ref's "pages" parameter to "page" if verified on one page or "at" if on non-sequential pages separated by comma).

Anyone here with Stanford SUNet ID access?[edit]

I'd like to have a look into a certain Soviet article on the matter of Baruch Spinoza#History of reception. It can be found via https://searchworks.stanford.edu/view/218159 on the pages 94—103. Any member of the Stanford University (or other person with a SUNet ID) could request the article as a PDF via that web page. Please enter Fadeev, Fišgalov as the authors into the Stanford's request form, Koncepciâ idealʹnogo gosudarstva v politikopravovom učenii B. Spinozy as the title and 94—103, index as the requested pages. My e-mail is eugrus@gmail.com Thanks in advance! --eugrus (talk) 12:58, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

@Eugrus: If nobody is able to provide this, you might consider scouring Category:Wikipedians by alma mater: Stanford University and asking anyone who edits somewhat regularly. The category includes both current and former students (former students probably don't have access), but writing one message and pasting it some number of times shouldn't take too terribly long, and it is probably more likely to succeed than only requesting here.

Eugrus, (1) There are various institutions worldwide that hold copies of this work. (2) Many university libraries have some sort of scan-to-pdf service for their members. That doesn't mean they already have an electronic copy, it means someone has to physically make the copy from the original. (That is different from the situation where, say, an institution provides an electronic copy of a thesis submitted to that institution that is only accessible to its members and inaccessible to anybody else in the world.) (3) Essentially, by your logic ("notifying everyone with that alma mater"), we could ping thousands of users on any given day since they are/used to be affiliated with institutions that hold a copy of a requested work. I doubt that is a desirable use of this page. — Pajz (talk) 20:57, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

@Farang Rak Tham: Ah, Hell. So, my college's scanner doesn't have a large enough surface area to do double-page scan. This means I'm going to need to make roughly 60 single-page scans, half of which will be upside down, then print 60 one-page PDFs, and then scan them all again into a single file so that I'm not emailing you 60 PDFs. It's going to be a few days before I have time to complete this. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:34, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

The OCLC link shows about 20 institutional holdings outside Russia (and, as always, there are more). That being said, the ruwiki "Resource Exchange" page is quite active as far as I remember, so of course you might want to take your request there if you wish. I would just ask you not to place the same request on different request pages, at least not without clearly pointing that out / adding a link to the other request. — Pajz (talk) 19:53, 2 November 2019 (UTC))

Thanks, Saff V. (talk) 09:29, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

@Saff V.: I can see page 145 in this Google Book preview. It's the 2012 edition of the book, which matches the ISBN you list. Is 2013 correct? —Bruce1eetalk 09:39, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Un fortunetelly I can't see that page. I just am going to verify this sentence Ayatollah Khomeini affirmed in 1979 that the execution of homosexuals (as well as prostitutes and adulterers) was justified in a moral society as the amputation of the gangrenous flesh of the article which had been sourced by this book.Saff V. (talk) 09:52, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
@Saff V.: Page 145 (of the 2012 edition) doesn't mention Khomeini; I've also searched the book for that sentence you quote, and I can't find that either. Google Books don't list a 2013 edition of this book, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. —Bruce1eetalk 10:06, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

@Saff V.: Here is the page you're looking for on Google Books: https://books.google.com/books?id=RPeHfW5WLeQC&pg=PA90 . I don't know why this version talks about Khomeini and the others don't: the ISBN is the same. Cheers, gnu57 20:04, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
I really appreciate you, It is an interesting point, why?!Saff V. (talk) 05:53, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
@Saff V.: It is odd indeed. The they are two different books in Google's database; when I check the bibliographic information at the bottom, I see that the version which lacks the information is an illustrated edition. It's interesting that the ISBNs listed in both version's publication info pages are the same, but Google reports different ones in its metadata at the bottom of the home page for each; I'd go with Google on this one, although I have no idea where they go their ISBNs from. Maybe directly from the publisher? I assume the duplication within the two books is an error, probably caused by copying that page from one edition to the next and then forgetting to change the ISBN along with the other info.
In any case do many make sure you update your citation, as we verified the info to page 90, not page 145. (Plus the year is different.) Compassionate727 (T·C) 17:17, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Australian date of birth[edit]

Does anyone have access to a reliable source for 19th-century Australian dates of birth? It is for Dora Ohlfsen-Bagge, whose birthname I believe was Adela Dora Ohlfsen-Bagge. The RS are giving different birthnames (a few say "Dorothea Adela Ohlfsen-Bagge") and different dates of birth, on or around 28 August 1869 in Ballarat, Victoria. Hoping someone can help to pin it down. Many thanks, SarahSV (talk) 19:47, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

@SlimVirgin: I would say Trove (as I use that for Australian sources) but this gives me a whole bunch of conflicting info. Oof! --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:25, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
MrLinkinPark333, the newspapers and scholarly sources are inconsistent. Even papers/books by people working for the same institution give different dates, so I'm hoping someone here may have a subscription to a reliable database. There's a Victoria government website for BMD, but they only give a year (1870, not 1869), and almost certainly spell her mother's name wrong (Harison, rather than Harrison). SarahSV (talk) 20:58, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
@SlimVirgin: You've probably already seen these, but Art Gallery NSW gives her date of birth as 22 August 1869, while Oxford Art Online says she was born in 1870. I can send you the full Oxford Art article if you would like it. —Bruce1eetalk 22:04, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
Hi Bruce, thanks, I have the Oxford Art article, and I'm aware of the Art Gallery of NSW. They say 22 August 1869, but a book by someone working there says 28 August 1869, and the Victoria BMD site says 1870. There's similar confusion about her death date, but that was in Italy so I have no idea how to resolve that. For Australia, I was hoping someone might have access to a good database of BMD dates.

Masterman, Lucy (1939). C. F. G. Masterman. London: Nicholson and Watson. p. 345-346[edit]

  • Masterman, Lucy (1939). C. F. G. Masterman. London: Nicholson and Watson. p. 345-346.

For David Lloyd George and Charles Masterman, and possibly others. I need to verify the quotation "When Lloyd George came back to the party, ideas came back to the party", and clarify if this was written or said, and if possible get a date for it. I would also like to check if the publisher is given as "Nicholson and Watson" or as "Ivor Nicholson and Watson".

Thanks, DuncanHill (talk) 13:12, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

The book Modern Wales: Politics, Places and People by Kenneth O. Morgan states that Masterman wrote it to his wife in 1926.[7] I also found a number of history books giving a longer version: "I've fought him as hard as anyone, but I have to confess, when Lloyd George[...]". In Gbooks snippet view of the 1968 reprint of the Lucy Masterman book, the visible portion reads me, "but I have to confess, when Lloyd George[...]". I wasn't able to directly verify that the "I've fought him" portion was there. (My guess is that an OCR error was preventing it from showing up in search results). Cheers, gnu57 16:03, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
@DuncanHill: In terms of the publisher, both worldcat and Trove say Nicholson and Watson. But this could easily be reconfirmed once the quote is confirmed. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:03, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
