Finding a source[edit]

Tips for finding a source yourself
  • Request the author(s) of research papers for a copy of their paper by email
  • Check on Google Books, or your local library may be able to obtain it through an interlibrary loan
  • Search Google Scholar for archived copies of journals in institutional repositories
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.
  • If you are requesting multiple sources, #number them (1, 2, 3..)
  • Once a request has been fulfilled add the {{Resolved}} template.
  • Filled requests are archived.
  • Requests unfilled after 3 months will be moved to the stale requests page

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}}
  • 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.

Need help finding sources talking about a Malaysian expressway[edit]

I'm currently working on North–South Expressway Northern Route, but online secondary sources have been a pain to find. A web search turned up nothing reliable, while a Google Books and Google Scholar search resulted in only one minor publication by the World Bank, which I could only use for one sentence. Searches of local news websites resulted in only accidents and incidents that occurred, which aren't notable. I'm pretty much hanging on the hope that there is a paper source (or some online work that I haven't been able to find) going into detail about the expressway, especially its history. If there is, it would also help a lot with the general North–South Expressway (Malaysia) article as well as North–South Expressway Southern Route, if I do get to it eventually. – Pizza1016 (talk | contribs) 06:36, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Source to create an article on Black Creek (Susquehanna River)[edit]

I discovered this (a 1968 USGS open-file report by Thomas Gwyn Newport, Harry E. Koester, Marion Joseph Bergin; the title is "Geology, hydrology, and geochemistry of the Black Creek watershed near Mocanaqua, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania"), which seems like a very useful source for an article on Black Creek. The trouble is that the USGS doesn't have it online, Worldcat says that there are no libraries that have the report, and on, it says that "We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock." Can anyone here get ahold of it? --Jakob (talk) 02:56, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Finding a quote of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the Egyptian president on 1967, in Heykal's book[edit]

Will it be possible to find a quote of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the Egyptian president on 1967, in Heykal's book: Sphinx and commissar: the rise and fall of Soviet influence in the Arab world ?

- The quote is found in the hebrew version of Gluska's The Israeli Military and the Origins of the 1967 War, p. 235. My translation is: "Nasser canceled at the last minute a planned Egyptian attack, and later accused the soviets: "you stopped us and have not allowed us to be the first to attack. You have not let us having the initiative. That was a collusion."

- Gluska cites Heykal's book: Sphinx and commissar: the rise and fall of Soviet influence in the Arab world, the Hebrew version, p. 181, 182.

American Cyanamid[edit]

Dear Wikipedians,

I'm looking for books about American Cyanamid, e.g. yearbooks or something like 50 Years of American Cyanamid. I've searched at Amazon, but haven't found, what I'm looking for. Because I'm not based in the US, it's difficult for me to find literature. --Kopiersperre (talk) 22:16, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

@Kopiersperre: American Cyanamid's reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission are publicly available, starting in 1994. Since American Cyanamid stopped being a reporting company in 1995, this is a fairly short window, but you can still find some useful reports at the SEC's EDGAR webpage for American Cyanamid.

Need Someone With an Subscription to Provide Me With a Specific 1954 Death Certificate[edit]

X mark.svg Not done

Basically, I am trying to verify the case of a woman who died in 1954 and who claimed to be 112 years old at the time of her death for the Gerontology Research Group. Based on my research, this woman might have indeed been 112 years old (or extremely close to it) at the time of her death. That said, though, I am unsure about what exactly the names of this woman's parents were; thus, I am hoping to access this woman's death certificate in order to see if it states the names of this woman's parents; the names of this woman's parents can go a very long way in verifying this woman's claimed age.

I think that has this woman's death certificate:

I think that this specific death certificate is indeed for this woman:

View Record Nancy Merrimen dd mm 1954 location Purchase original record from Cook County

However, I myself do not have an subscription; thus, I am wondering if someone here who does have an subscription can get access to this woman's death certificate and, if this is legal, to give me a copy of this woman's death certificate. Again, I want this death certificate for gerontology research purposes, which, in my honest opinion, is certainly a very good cause. Futurist110 (talk) 21:15, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi Futurist110, the record you're looking for is merely indexed on The original death certificate is available for purchase from the Cook County Clerk’s Office for 17 USD.

So in other words, there is no way at all to get this woman's death certificate for free, correct? Futurist110 (talk) 04:49, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
@Futurist110: Correct. - NQ (talk) 13:26, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

The U.S. Social Security Death Index might not help here considering that I know when exactly this woman died; rather, I simply want to know what exactly this woman's parents' names are due to the fact that this information might very well be crucial in verifying this woman's claimed age. Based on the research which I (and possibly one or more other people) have done on this case, this woman might have very well indeed been 112 years old at the time of her death, but I need to know the names of this woman's parents so that I can confirm that the 1850 and 1860 U.S. Census entries which I and/or other people have found are indeed for the Nancy Merriman/Merrimen who died in 1954.

A claim from the 1999 Guinness Book of World Records[edit]


There was a claim that American singer Selena was named "most dominating artist" on the 1999 Guinness Book of World Records, however, I bought this version and couldn't find the claim in the book, she wasn't even mentioned. According to Amazon, there are two different versions of the book (the first released in May 1999 and one from September 1999). I have the May edition and was wondering if the September 1999 edition of the book has this claim? Also, if anyone can provide me a clearer text of what the book means by "most dominating artist"; was it overall? Latin field? Spanish-language only? etc. As of now, the text has been hidden with a message until I can verify that she was named this title. Thanks, jona(talk) 19:35, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

I can't find this at all... one site said she was on the cover! I don't think this is true. I know they've had a Spanish edition (El Libro Guinness de Los Records) but I don't know if they had one in 2000. You might try contacting Guinness, since you paid for the book already! They could at least rule it out that they never had this category..... Good luck. Wikimandia (talk) 21:43, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
I got the book from Amazon, but thanks for looking I will go ahead and just remove the text altogether. Thanks, jona(talk) 00:24, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Need Help Seeing a Specific 1860 U.S. Census Entry[edit]

I just did some research on this man:

--and it appears that he might have been the World's Oldest Man at the time of his death in 1962 (though he was probably 107, rather than 109, years old at the time of his death). That said, though, I need someone with a subscription to and/or to another such website to please give me a copy of this actual 1860 U.S. Census entry itself:

Basically, it states "Harris Mule" here but I am strongly tempted to think that this is a mis-transcription of "Henry Mole"; thus, can someone here please take a look at this actual 1860 U.S. Census entry itself, save it, and post a copy of it here so that I am personally able to see whether or not I am correct that the 1860 U.S. Census entry actually states "Henry Mole"?

Thank you very much. Futurist110 (talk) 01:17, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

I don't have membership to be able to help, but I do suggest that you check to see if your local library provides access. Mine does, but can only be access at the library (in contrast to most paywall reference sites they pay for access to can be accessed anywhere with a library card number). Since is such a major site, many libraries provide access to it. AHeneen (talk) 01:26, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Ross MacMillan and Robertson Davies responded to the above article in the same newspaper on 14 March 1992 and 21 March 1992 respectively. All three of these might be helpful in improving the article.

Hi Skr15081997. I've sent you the Globe and Mail articles. - NQ (talk) 12:24, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
@NQ: Thanks for the news articles. I have a small list of other articles but don't know the title or page no., only date and newspaper are available. I can provide a few keywords that will assist in tracking down them.
  • Toronto Globe and Mail, 22 May 1952; will include "Toronto Symphony Orchestra".
  • Toronto Globe and Mail, 30 May 1952; will include "Toronto Musicians Association", details of a meeting held at Arts and Letter Club on 29 May and the quote "The refusal to renew contracts may indicate an infringement of Canadian artists' right to employment."
  • Toronto Daily Star, 15 August 1952; will include a quote from John Moscow "We had given up hope, now we know we have not been forgotten."
  • Toronto Daily Star, 26 August 1952; a lengthy editorial includes "Dr. Seeley fears that the TSO directors have, by their action, set the dangerous precedent in Canada of making employment contingent upon a person's ability to obtain a border crossing card from the U.S. Immigration Department ... Significantly, Dr. Seeley's statement last week was followed by an Ottawa dispatch reporting that the Canadian External Affairs department is deeply concerned about the large number of Canadians who have been refused permission to cross our 'invisible border' even for short visits ... It is strongly felt here that the regulations contained in the McCarran Act are so vicious that an opportunity should be found to make the Canadian viewpoint known."
  • Toronto Daily Star, 2 September 1952; "Federation of Canadian Artists" and the "Canadian Arts Council", resolved to support [Symphony Six].
This might look a strange request but I have included as much detail as possible. Thanks again.--Skr15081997 (talk) 15:58, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
