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.

'Pioneer of the Dutch Film Poster: Dolly Rudeman 1902-1980' by Paul van Yperen[edit]

A link is here. I'm working on an English article for Dolly Rudman (it's here, in a very embryonic state! -which also demonstrates the paucity of sources in English general.) There's an article on the, but the machine translation is v poor. Any help appreciated :) --O Fortuna!...Imperatrix mundi. 17:41, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

@Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi: What part of this book do you need? Note that we can't handle full book scans. We could send you a table of contents and allow you to choose where to go from there. ~ Rob13Talk 19:32, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
Yes, thanks very much BU Rob13, got that- well. I don't really know; since it's something I have zero-knowledge on, I was thinking just a few pages covering relevant periods- early years, major works, later years. Something like that. Se, the article is never going to be much more than start class (by me anyway!) but it would be good to flesh it out a bit. How easy is it for you/s? O Fortuna!...Imperatrix mundi. 19:35, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
@Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi: This book appears to be exceedingly rare. See WorldCat. The only two copies in the United States are in a university in New York (where it's part of a special collection - unlikely to be eligible for interlibrary loan) and a research institute in Los Angeles (unlikely to engage in interlibrary loan at all). I happen to be likely to travel close to one of those areas in the somewhat near future, so I'll see what I can do. This one will likely take a while, though. It could be as far away as summer before I manage it. ~ Rob13Talk 19:41, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much BU Rob13, that's very kind- but please don't bother. If it's as rare as that- WP:RSN probably? In any case, no point in going to that much trouble for something like this. Does Drmies do translations I wonder ;) *scratch chin* O Fortuna!...ImpFortuna Imperatrix Mundieratrix mundi. 19:56, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
Not right now, but remind me tomorrow or this weekend. Drmies (talk) 22:57, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
@Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi: Its definitely a reliable source. The reason it's so rare is that it was produced only to accompany one specific exhibition as a sort of extended program in a sense, from what I can tell. When the exhibition was finished, most copies were probably lost or destroyed. It doesn't appear it was ever publicly made available, so libraries didn't have a chance to grab it unless donated (as in the case of Binghamton). Certainly an interesting history attached to this item. ~ Rob13Talk 01:32, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
A couple of libraries in Chicago have the Dutch version. The entire book's only 71 pages including illustration, so maybe the biography section is a manageable length for copying/translation. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 02:35, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Oops, forgot the Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi part. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 03:48, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
@BlackcurrantTea: thanks very much for the information. That errainly sounds more manageable than I expected- but it could still be a helluva translation project! Which I wouldn't expect anyone to undertake; the .nl article is one thing- <250 words- but that could be something else  :o Thanks again though! O Fortuna!...Imperatrix mundi. 14:03, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
It's the weekend- is Drmies still around...?  ;) — O Fortuna! Imperatrix mundi. 17:24, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
  • (outdent a bit) Look at your draft. I did a thing or two. That one source, Groot, has everything you need for a stub. Drmies (talk) 17:59, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
Great stuff! Thanks very much Drmies, I'll have a go at that then. Much appreciated. — O Fortuna! Imperatrix mundi. 18:08, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
Absolutely. I may get back to this later today--translating/paraphrasing that bit from that book is no big chore, and I'm going to leave the cleanup to you. :) Drmies (talk) 18:12, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
Noting for the record that this is still being looked into. Please do not archive. ~ Rob13Talk 21:57, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Currently working on this. ~ Rob13Talk 23:15, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
@Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi: Sadly, not going to be able to do this one after all. The university I thought I could get access at holds this in their rare books section which has all sorts of restrictions on scanning texts. Sorry! ~ Rob13Talk 05:26, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
@BU Rob13: No problem. Thanks for trying- and more to the point, not forgetting! (unlike me). That's a common stumbling block of course, and one I'm somewhat surprised you don't encounter more often with all the esoterica you get asked for here  :) Take care, and thanks again. (Pinging Drmies (for the second time today, apologies) for 'closure' on this). — O Fortuna semper crescis, aut decrescis 11:08, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
User:Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi, I've asked a Dutch connection. Drmies (talk) 20:55, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

The Literature of the Fox: A Reference and Critical Guide to Anglo-Jewish Writing[edit]

Hi. This is a bit of a long shot. I recently brought our entry on Lazarus Aaronson to featured article status. Now, however, a book has been published which I believe contains a lot of new information on him. The book, titled The Literature of the Fox: A Reference and Critical Guide to Anglo-Jewish Writing, is written by William Baker and Jeanette Roberts Shumaker. It is available on Amazon.

I am interested in the chapter "Pioneers: E. O. Deutsch, B. L. Farjeon, Israel Gollancz, Leonard Merrick, and Lazarus Aaronson". It would be great if anyone with access to this chapter trough their library, could share it with me. –P. S. Burton (talk) 16:45, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

@P. S. Burton: Currently, only two libraries have it. One is the Library of Congress, and the other is a small seminary in Ohio. I expect that this will be picked up by other libraries in due time, but it was only published a week ago, so you may need to give it a bit of time. ~ Rob13Talk 17:12, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
  • @P. S. Burton, try emailing the authors—they might be excited about your project czar 03:44, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
@P. S. Burton: Would this still be helpful? A few more mainstream libraries have picked this up since I last looked at it, so now I may be able to obtain a copy. ~ Rob13Talk 21:59, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
Hi @BU Rob13:, that would be very much appreciated. Thanks! P. S. Burton (talk) 16:42, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
Doing... ~ Rob13Talk 16:48, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
Interlibrary loan unsuccessful, sadly. Give it some more time for the book to be bought by libraries and then we can try again. ~ Rob13Talk 22:42, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks for trying. Let's keep this request open and try again later. P. S. Burton (talk) 16:30, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
@P. S. Burton: Good news! I can finally get this, now that Harvard has a copy. I should have it within a week or so. Doing... ~ Rob13Talk 22:48, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

May 2017[edit]

Fathi Hassan[edit]

Our article on this rather famous artist really needs some help. I'd like to read:

but don't seem to have access to it. If by any miracle anyone can access:

  • Mary Angela Schroth, Sandra Federici, Andrea Marchesini Reggiani (2000). TransAfricana: artisti contemporanei: Bologna, 15 gennaio – 24 febbraio 2000: San Giorgio in Poggiale, Collezioni d'arte e di storia della Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Bologna (exhibition catalogue).

or any introductory or biographical material in: * Achille Bonito Oliva (2000). Fathi Hassan (exhibition catalogue). Milan: Charta. ISBN 9788881582846.

  • Roberto Bencivenga (2002). Fathi Hassan: la sostanza dell'anima = Spirit Matter (exhibition catalogue). Senigallia: Ed. Della Rovere. (no ISBN?).

I'd like to see those too. These are the sources cited by the Smithsonian, so I'm hoping they'll be of some use. Many thanks, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 12:14, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

@Justlettersandnumbers: I have a PDF of the first article – email me and I can send it to you. 97198 (talk) 13:06, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Got it, thank you so much, 97198! Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 18:09, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
@Justlettersandnumbers: Frustratingly, the second source above is available in my city at a university that won't let anyone in that particular library unless they're affiliated directly with the university. Very annoying! I'll see if I can't get them to consider either scanning the pages or making an exception to allow a scholar from a nearby university in... In the meantime, Doing... the third source. The fourth source is likely impossible. WorldCat says it isn't available outside Italy. ~ Rob13Talk 01:13, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
Fantastic, BU Rob13, thank you so much! Please don't to any very great trouble or extraordinary effort for these – it's more than possible that the yield in terms of useful information may in some cases anyway be quite low. Thanks again, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 07:53, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
@Justlettersandnumbers: Please email me for the third source above via Special:EmailUser. ~ Rob13Talk 04:28, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
@Justlettersandnumbers: Sent. Please confirm you received it. ~ Rob13Talk 22:52, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
Yes, thank you so much, BU Rob13! But i haven't made any use of it yet. I think this request has achieved all it is likely to – many thanks! Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 22:56, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
@Justlettersandnumbers: I might have a chance of getting the second source, so let's keep this open for a bit longer. ~ Rob13Talk 23:24, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

@Justlettersandnumbers:, if @BU Rob13: hasn't been able to do this yet, there's a copy at the Metropolitan Museum. I'm heading up that way next week anyways, and could stop by to take a look. menaechmi (talk) 16:10, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Our Children Are Dying[edit]

These are some oldies, found through an old index of book reviews. A bunch of these are in EBSCO/PQ, if you have more than the TWL databases in your package. czar 17:18, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Even a few would be helpful to start here. Thanks! (Please {{ping}} with any replies.) czar 01:20, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
I've looked at this request awhile ago, and the ones that I should have access to on EBSCO I can't access due to the year coverage. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 01:36, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
I've now found and sent all but two of these, Czar. Please verify you've received my (many) emails - sorry for the large volume of emails, but I sent them piece-by-piece to make it easier to mark which pages came from which sources. Booklist I hope to access via a scan through interlibrary loan. Book Week will need to wait a few weeks until I have a chance to negotiate entry into the library of a nearby university. Apparently my university doesn't have the correct volume, but a nearby university does. ~ Rob13Talk 02:17, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes, thanks so much! czar 08:22, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Gynberg Ballads[edit]

This is an illustrated political satire which will help with articles about Tong Kee and Kalākaua. Only University of Oregon, UCLA, University of Hawaii, Brown and the University of Michigan seems to have it. If possible please scan and copy the entire manuscript with attention to both text and image illustration especially the second page after the titled "The Opium Racket". I intend to upload them onto the wikimedia commons since they are in the public domain and does not exist anywhere else online. Or whoever pick up this request can upload them there and just notify me, whichever method is easier.

--KAVEBEAR (talk) 23:58, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Doing... both via interlibrary loan (or trying at least). Initial glances at library catalogs seem to indicate these are non-circulating, so this may not be possible via loan. ~ Rob13Talk 23:46, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
Do see if it possible to get them scanned? If this against the lending and borrowing institutions' policies, please take leveled (preferably not at distorted angles) and high quality photographs of the pages. If taking photographs, take them with room on edge for cropping and manipulation. Thanks.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 02:24, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
@KAVEBEAR: Yeah, doing what I can. If I can get my hands on the books, I have no problem providing a full book scan because these are public domain texts. I'm sure I can't get a library to provide me with a full book scan because they wouldn't dedicate the resources to that large a request even if I could explain the public domain laws to them. ~ Rob13Talk 02:36, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Gynberg ballads is non-circulating, so no library will loan a copy. This will only be accessible in-person at Brown, U of Michigan, UCLA, U of Oregon, or Hawaii - Manoa. ~ Rob13Talk 23:10, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

University of Chicago[edit]

This book available apparently/oddly enough only in Chicago according to WorldCat could contain possibly electoral data on early parliamentary election in Venezuela relevant for Wikipedia:WikiProject Elections and Referendums/Elections and referendums. Has anyone access to this library?--Antemister (talk) 09:53, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Doing... via interlibrary loan. ~ Rob13Talk 23:41, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
@Antemister: Interlibrary loan unsuccessful. The copy at Chicago is non-circulating, so only someone who could physically access the library in Chicago could examine the source. ~ Rob13Talk 23:09, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Sure (because it seems to be the only copy). That's why a person with access to Chicago University is necessary.--Antemister (talk) 08:13, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
What I'm saying is that most books/sources can be accessed by anyone with access to a major university library because the libraries will loan almost all books among themselves. That is not the case here, because this specific book is non-circulating. ~ Rob13Talk 11:56, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Thanks in advance. --Collector1100 (talk) 07:23, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

@Collector1100: This book is not part of that Contributions series, and it is a full book. See here. It is a contribution of the Mongolian-American Paleontological Project but was published separately. We cannot handle full book scans, but perhaps a portion would help you? ~ Rob13Talk 15:30, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
A portion would be fine. I'm requesting the information related to the discovery of its fossil remians, such as when the joint expedition first found them in 1989. --Collector1100 (talk) 20:01, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Jacob sheep[edit]

I'm struggling to find proper sources for the history of this UK sheep breed. Does anyone have easy access to:

What I'd like to see is the Jacob entry in Mason (seems to be on page 830), and anything on iconography, history, use or characteristics of Jacob or piebald sheep in Ryder; in the old edition, that seems to include pages 274, 400, and 512; I don't have even snippet view of the 2007 edition, so don't know if the pagination is changed. As with other requests I've made, no-one should go to extraordinary lengths to find these for me. Thank you all! Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 21:27, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

Justlettersandnumbers, can you see this? One never knows when Google Books will be difficult, but sometimes a direct link will work (this did for me in a second browser). It's page 830 of the 2016 edition of Mason's. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 02:38, 10 June 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, BlackcurrantTea! Linking directly to the page with something like &pg=PA830 is something I often try, but in this case, no joy – I get the usual "page not available" message. But changing browser … who'd have thought that would work? Brilliant, many thanks! So now I have page 830, and find that I need page 829 as well … and not even changing browser will give me that. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 16:37, 10 June 2017 (UTC)
Justlettersandnumbers, it seems 829's not available via Google Books, even in the "enticing fragment of a page where the phrase is mentioned" view. Luckily the book's available at university libraries in various countries, so it's likely someone here can get it for you. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 19:17, 10 June 2017 (UTC)
Doing... the 1983 version of Ryder. I'll send you an index and TOC, Justlettersandnumbers, and you can tell me what you want from that. ~ Rob13Talk 12:59, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

@Justlettersandnumbers: Index/ToC sent. ~ Rob13Talk 00:12, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
Thank you so much, BU Rob13. If it's not too much trouble, I'd very much like to have pages 274, 400, and 512, which seem to be the crucial ones. There's no great urgency. Thank you so much.
  • Justlettersandnumbers, do you still need any pages from Mason's encyclopedia? I get the impression that p. 829 hasn't been retrieved yet. – Uanfala 13:45, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes, that's right, Uanfala, I still don't have page 829 of Mason. I'm also hoping that BU Rob13 (or someone else) may be able to get pages 274, 400, and 512 of Ryder for me. And if there's anyone with access to the Felius title below… As before, I would not want anyone to go to extraordinary lengths to get these for me. Thanks, all, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 13:55, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
I can get the pages from Ryder 2007 hopefully by Friday. As for Mason's, I only have access to it on the PCs of the local national library, which would not allow anyone to save, print or photograph it, but as the bit about the Jacob sheep on p. 829 is barely a paragraph long, I wouldn't mind retyping it. Let me know if this is OK. – Uanfala 14:12, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Justlettersandnumbers, you can email me for the paragraph from Mason's. As for Ryder, I'll need a couple of days more. – Uanfala 22:21, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
Justlettersandnumbers, I've also got the pages from Ryder now. If you want them, or the paragraph from Mason's, you can send me an email. – Uanfala 01:20, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
Now received, many thanks to Uanfala! I'll leave this open just a little longer in case anyone happens to have access to Felius (below). Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 15:05, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

New requests[edit]

Is there anyone who might be able to send me the odd page from Porter et al, Mason's World Encyclopedia of Livestock Breeds and Breeding, sixth edition? As mentioned above, I need page 829 for Jacob sheep; I also need page 240 for Maronesa, and pages 470 (Gypsy Cob) and 475 (Irish Cob) for Gypsy horse.
I'd also be grateful if anyone can find me occasional pages from:
If so, I'd particularly like to have the section on sub-group 14B, Ankole and Ankole-Watusi breeds, including (at least) 606 (Bahima), 608 (Bashi), and 604 or 605? (Ankole) – all for a new page on this group of breeds. Thanks to anyone who can help. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 20:50, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Image from Musil, Arabia Petraea, for article on Beersheba.[edit]

What may be the first photo of Beersheba that shows buildings appears in the 1908 edition of Musil, Arabia Petraea, Vol II, page 65.

Unfortunately the scan at Internet Archive is very poor, see here. If anyone has access to the physical book and can make a better scan, please do so. Note that (unless I screwed up), this image does not appear in the 1907 edition. Thanks. Zerotalk 06:51, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

Two Russian books[edit]

Екатерины служила мастерской, где создавались декорации для Театра музыкальной комедии. Лишь в августе 1992 г. церковь была возвращена армянской общине, а в марте 1993 г. состоялось первое богослужение...

Both were digitized by the University of Michigan. So if anyone has access, please send me those pages. Thanks. --Երևանցի talk 09:05, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

Országos Széchenyi Könyvtár has a record for what may be an earlier edition of the first book, from 1994-1996, three volumes. (Note that library entries in Hungary use ISO 9 transcription for Russian language titles and names.)
Svâtyni Sankt-Peterburga : istoriko-cerkovnaâ ènciklopediâ v treh tomah / V. V. Antonov, A. V. Kobak
Sadly the book is not available for reading. The number of pages in the three volumes are 287, 324, 390. Do you know the volume number and page number to copy from that? If so, ping me (because I might not be watching this page) and I'll ask them if they can photocopy it. – b_jonas 14:38, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

  • @Yerevantsi: I had requested copies of both and received them at my library, but due to personal reasons, I had to take time off from RX and they wound up getting returned. Do you still need either source? If so, I'll request them again. Apologies for the delay. ~ Rob13Talk 17:35, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Raj Bhakta Marg - PhD thesis[edit]

For improving Shrimad Rajchandra and related articles.--Nizil (talk) 20:25, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

@Nizil Shah: ETHOS doesn't have a copy (your second link). The institution appears to allow only library staff to access the digital copy (note the link stating "Repository Staff Online ... View Item" at the bottom). Cardiff has a copy, but they will not lend it out according to their policies. The British Library is listed as having a copy on WorldCat, but only because of the listing in ETHOS, so that's not useful. The only chance here, it appears, would be for someone to physically go to the library at Cardiff and access the source. Even then, it is a 200+ page source, so we could not provide a full scan due to copyright issues. You'd need to know what portion of the text you wanted. ~ Rob13Talk 23:01, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
@BU Rob13:. It is hard to know what I want without reading the thesis. But basically I want to have more information on life of Shrimad Rajchandra. I would have created separate article on the religious movement founded on his teachings (Raj Bhakta Marg) if I had more info on that too. Regards,--Nizil (talk) 11:41, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Mainly, trying to ascertain the copyright status of File:Poerbatjaraka in 2006 book cover.jpg. I think it's covered by the PD-IDGov tag as currently used in the file. But someone challenged it in this review. If the book mentions a more specific source of the image, the status can be clearer.

@HaEr48: Before I fill this request, why is it public domain in the United States? That's the most pertinent question. You need a US public domain tag on that image to meet Commons requirements. ~ Rob13Talk 14:22, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
@BU Rob13: If the image was originally published during Poerbatjaraka's lifetime, it would be PD in the US per a similar rationale to this: File:A._Hamid_Arief,_c._1960.jpg#Licensing. Which is why looking up the source would help clear this up. HaEr48 (talk) 14:33, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Capital Gay and Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (both for the German WP)[edit]

  • Diesel Balaam: Two Cheers for the Anti-Gay Gay Movement. In: Gay and Lesbian Humanist, Vol. 16, No. 2, Winter 1996/7, pages 9-13, ISSN 0953-8763
Note: Gay and Lesbian Humanist archive is not accessible, with HTML error code 403. The printed edition is on stock at the British Library, for example. Unfortunately, I have lost my library card. In 1992, or so. And I'm not prepared to visit European non-EU countries. Can't wait till Theresa has thought it over ...
  • Capital Gay, July 5th, 1985, pages 9 and 11, and the surrounding pages, if they deal with the striking miners' presence at London Pride in 1985, OCLC 952386189 (Online, with Gale Cengage access) and OCLC 724040251 (print).
Note: a few German libraries keep this magazine, but not the number in question. I have seen that Bishopsgate Library has it.
  • Anonymous (?): Queer ICONS: Capital Gay. In: The Pink Paper, 12th July, 1996, issue 438, page 43, OCLC 786453370 for an electronic version (sorry, I couldn't get access through my library account), and printed volumes with OCLC 499864256 and OCLC 30618725. OCLC 724026813 lists the German National Library only, but they don't have the number in question. For the print version: ISSN 1472-3662.

Doing... - @Dodger67: give me 2-3 hrs, I think I will find at least half of this stuff, --Cimbail (talk) 19:09, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
Cimbail Thanks, take your time, 2-3 weeks would be fine too. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 19:33, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
Dodger67 Got the articles striked out, and Smeltzer 2007 as a full-text clone without the usual appearance of a journal article. But it should serve your needs, unless you want to have a closer look at the mutilated tables. Please, strike out the lines above, if you are satisfied. Would you be so kind as to send me a wikimail? And, by the way, parts of the missing stuff are available via Ovid, but I don't have access. Someone around here should be able to help you. Have a nice day, --Cimbail (talk) 20:07, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
Cimbail You've got mail... I'm amazed at how quickly you got so many of them. Thanks Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 20:14, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
CimbailThe Smeltzer copy is good, thanks. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 21:49, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
@Dodger67: If you email me I can send you a PDF copy of the last article (Welner). 97198 (talk) 03:48, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
97198 Thanks, you've got mail. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 07:24, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
Doing... (or rather attempting) the remaining two via interlibrary loan. ~ Rob13Talk 09:41, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

San Francisco Examiner[edit]

For GA (in Russian wiki. I can translate it in English as well) about Ah Toy I need to check the source "San Francisco Examiner, January 23, 1881, pg. 1". According to Worldcat electronic version of it does exist, but I dont know where. Could someone help? --Алый Король (talk) 14:39, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Any hope? No people from San Francisco? --Алый Король (talk) 15:25, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Алый Король, from 1865 to 1889, this newspaper was known as The Daily Examiner. Sadly the issue you need isn't available on either the or California Hist Society, San Francisco, CA has issues of this newspaper in original and the Library of Congress, Washington, DC probably has this issue in microfilm. A search for "Ah Toy" at gives a good deal of results. I can create some clippings if you don't get the Examiner's 1881 issue. --Skr15081997 (talk) 04:28, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
I'm seeing what interlibrary loan can accomplish. ~ Rob13Talk 09:34, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Musings by Bhanumathi Ramakrishna[edit]

Ramakrishna, Bhanumathi (2000). Musings. P.B.R. Publications. OCLC 47225320. 

I would like the pages that cover Alibabavum 40 Thirudargalum and Missamma / Missiamma. The films are not necessarily spelt the same way ("Alibabavum" is never used; instead "Alibaba" and "Ali Baba" are used). Since there are 264 pages in the book overall, I think one will not have much difficulty going through all pages. Perhaps it would be better to start from page 200? That is where Missamma is first mentioned, and Alibaba in the subsequent page. --Kailash29792 (talk) 12:01, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Doing... @Kailash29792: I'll take a look. Due to time constraints, I won't be able to do a full read/skim of the 264 pages, but I can check around the specified locations and do an index search. ~ Rob13Talk 09:25, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Lamont Galllery[edit]

"Lamont Gallery Opened at Exeter". The New York Times. 31 May 1953. p. 63. Lamont Gallery

I am working on an article, and one important source brought up is this NYT post from 1953. I cannot access it in the archives without a subscription to NYT. If anyone who can read it can contribute and transpose the content into the article, that would be really helpful. --alphalfalfa(talk) 13:49, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

@Alphalfalfa: Email me for a copy. The article is all of three sentences, though, so it may not be of help to you. ~ Rob13Talk 09:22, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
@Alphalfalfa: Sent. ~ Rob13Talk 17:56, 15 August 2017 (UTC), for Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight) article[edit]
