article from The Paralympian magazine[edit]


I am currently looking for an article in the September 2002 issue of The Paralympian titled Ioanna Karyofylli: Athens will Stage Unique Games. I would like to confirm the text is the same on this website and have the proper citation such as author, page numbers, title etc for my userspace draft on her. Thanks. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 03:25, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

MrLinkinPark333, although it won't help with page numbers and citations, this archived copy online should at least help verify the text. --Usernameunique (talk) 15:15, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
@Usernameunique: Thanks. That archived link is a lot better than the one I found. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:12, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Plesiosaur papers[edit]

Three papers needed for Elasmosaurus which I can't find:

Brown DS (1993) A taxonomic reappraisal of the families Elasmosauridae and Cryptoclididae (Reptilia, Plesiosauroidea). Revue de Paléobiologie 7: 9–16.

Revision of North American elasmosaurs from the Cretaceous of the western interior Carpenter, Kenneth In: Paludicola, 1999, vol. 2, no. 2, p. 148

LittleJerry might also be interested in these. Thanks --FunkMonk (talk) 20:33, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

@FunkMonk: The third, being out of copyright, is freely available from hathitrust here. --Worldbruce (talk) 22:19, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Is there any way to get that as a PDF? Seems you need to log in. FunkMonk (talk) 22:23, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
@FunkMonk: I have your first and third one. Email me. EvergreenFir (talk) 22:29, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, sent! FunkMonk (talk) 22:33, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
Documents sent! EvergreenFir (talk) 23:01, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
Got Williston on PDF, only need the first two then. Don't think they have DOIs. FunkMonk (talk) 04:45, 28 September 2017 (UTC)
Does EvergreenFir have the first one? Is it in the journal Revue de paléobiologie with ISSN 0253-6730 and published by Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Genéve? The volume number and the year don't seem to match: according to the library catalog of Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum Kvt., volume 7 issues 1 and 2 were published in 1988.
@GabrielF: can you perhaps help get the second article?
b_jonas 22:22, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Ok wait, it's getting complicated. According to a reference from [F. Robin O’Keefe, “A Cladistic Analysis and Taxonomic Revision of the Plesiosauria (Reptilia: Sauropterygia)”, (2001) Acta Zoologica Fennica 213: 1-63., full text], this article might be in Revue de Paléobiologie. Volume spécial vol. 7, which is numbered separately from the normal yearly two issues of the journal. However, volume spécial no. 5 is published in 2003, and volume spécial no. 8 was published in 2000, again according to the catalog of Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum Kvt., so I don't understand what's up with the numbers there. – b_jonas 22:38, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
@B jonas and FunkMonk:Here's the WorldCat entry for the "spécial" series. There appear to have been gaps of several years between some issues; according to the UChicago catalog, volume 7 was indeed published in 1993. --Usernameunique (talk) 22:44, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
I only got the stricken paper. I personally don't know anything about these journals past what I pasted above, but yeah, there must be a reason why they're hard to track down... FunkMonk (talk) 22:49, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
By coincidence, someone just requested the Carpenter paper at the Dinosaur Mailing List, and someone sent this link where all Carpenter's papers can be found:[1] So I've struck that one, pinging LittleJerry if he wants papers from the site. Only Brown missing. FunkMonk (talk) 10:53, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Two new papers on the discovery of Elasmosaurus were just published today, so in addition to the above missing paper, I'd like to request the following two:

October 2017[edit]

The Sutton Hoo ship-burial: research and publication between 1939 and 1980[edit]

{{Resolved}} Joachim Werner (1990). Translated by Christopher & Sonia Hawkes. The Sutton Hoo ship-burial: research and publication between 1939 and 1980. Privately printed. OCLC 848873715.

For the articles Sutton Hoo, Sutton Hoo helmet, and Rupert Bruce-Mitford.

This is a translation of a trenchant 1978 review by Werner. Delighting in it, the Hawkes translated it from German, printed it themselves, and sent it to their colleagues. A few copies have since made their way into libraries: one in Oxford, one in Coventry (fittingly), and one in Siena. Unfortunately, having already tried to ILL a copy, the libraries were unwilling to either send or scan the work; it's only 11 pages, and for copyright reasons they would not scan more than 10%. I suppose the most realistic way of getting the work is:

  1. If anyone lives near one of the three libraries and would be willing to make the trek.
  2. Finding another copy in another collection.
  3. Finding 11 people who each want to ILL one page (yeah, not particularly realistic).

I'd appreciate any help/suggestions. Thanks! --Usernameunique (talk) 16:25, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

@Usernameunique: If it ws availble from the British Library, I could have a look at it there? — fortunavelut luna 16:55, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi, I don't see it in their catalog. But perhaps the Universities of Oxford or Warwick might feel comfortable loaning their copies to the British Library? They wouldn't send it to the US, but that is more logistically complicated. --Usernameunique (talk) 17:37, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
I'll have a word; won't hear back until at least tmrw (UTC) now of course. In fact, thinking about it, they take their time replyin at all- so might not be til next week! — fortunavelut luna 17:54, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi! I could also call the universities and ask them. Got through to someone at Oxford quite quickly when I called about ILLing it to the US. --Usernameunique (talk) 18:06, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Well, why not try that too- we'll see who gets a reply first and launch off whichever pad comes along?! — fortunavelut luna 18:12, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi, spoke to people from both libraries today. The Warwick library will not lend the item to anyone, but there's a slight chance they might send me a copy (might have to get the consent of the son of the translators, both of whom are dead, to copy it, so it's definitely a long shot). The Bodleian seemed unaware of their own practices (expressly "claim[ing] ignorance"), and told me to call the British Library, but at least didn't seem totally opposed to it. The British Library, in turn, said that they thought the Bodleian would not send it to their reading room, but that it might to a public or university library (which is somewhat confusing---is the BL not a public library?).
The tl;dr of that is that I'm trying again with the Warwick library on my end, and that the Bodleian might ILL it to a library in London, but which library or libraries is unclear. --Usernameunique (talk) 21:28, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
Hello, I found a location not mentioned above: British Museum, Britain, Europe & Prehistory Library (this library has opening hours differing from the Anthropology Library), item barcode 10025019, shelf number AS 3.7 W. This could be an option for those who are able to visit the British Library, which seems to have been downgraded to a non-public book magazine. It's roughly half-way between BL and Waterloo Bridge. Cheers, --Robert Dabringhaus (talk) 19:21, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
That's great, thanks Robert Dabringhaus! Here's the British Museum library page. How did you happen to come across that mention? --Usernameunique (talk) 20:29, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi, struck out with Warwick, request was returned as unfilled; they wouldn't even scan the front/back matter. Per the above discovery, I've just asked on the BM project page if someone might be willing to stop in at the library and photograph it. --Usernameunique (talk) 03:52, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Mike Christie, I think there are a couple typos in that. "Untersuchungen am Hintereisferner" seems to be what you're looking for. OCLC and Google Books entry.

He approved the wording "The East Anglia BGS Regional Geology Guide, published in January 2016, dates the Red Crag to 3.1 to 2.5 million years ago, but the start and end are poorly defined due to the general paucity of age-diagnostic stratigraphic indicators and the fragmentary nature of the geology." This is unreferenced as he did not want his name used (and email correspondence is presumably not an RS anyway). I do not have access to the The East Anglia BGS Regional Geology Guide, and I should be grateful if someone who does could check whether it supports the above wording, and supply a page number. The book is shown here but the 2016 edition does not appear to be on Worldcat. --Dudley Miles (talk) 20:58, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

This appears to be an official publication which has an invalid isbn and is not listed by the British Library and Worldcat. I have emailed the British Library about it. Dudley Miles (talk) 12:44, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
@Dudley Miles: The WorldCat entry is here under a slightly different name. ~ Rob13Talk 14:53, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks very much. I have emailed the British Library with this information. According to Worldcat my best hope is Hertfordshire inter-library loan! Dudley Miles (talk) 15:20, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
You'd prefer to get it from a bloke in America? ;) — fortunavelut luna 15:28, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Inter-library loan would probably take ages to come through, but you are right. I should try it. It is the first book I have ever found which does not appear to be available in the British Library. Dudley Miles (talk) 15:46, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes, that's really wierd, esp since the Scot nat Library would appear to have it. Do you have access to BL? — fortunavelut luna 15:59, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
@Dudley Miles: Well, here's a .pdf of a review of the work, so at least gives full titles etc. Note the difference with world Cat- closer to your original one, it seems. — fortunavelut luna 16:23, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
@Dudley Miles and Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi: The only reason for the WorldCat discrepancy is because they regarded "British Regional Geology" as the series name, and so it's in amongst publisher information, etc. instead of in the title. ~ Rob13Talk 16:40, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
And I did not track it down because there was a typo in the isbn in the details of the copy I found. Thanks to @BU Rob13 and Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi: for your help. Yes I do have access to BL. Anyone can get a reader's card, but of course you have to live in or visit London to take advantage. I am also a member of the London Library, which is expensive but brilliant, although not for science. They will post out books on loan, but not outside Europe. Dudley Miles (talk) 17:35, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Nice one Dudley Miles, was just checking as I will be at BL on Thurs- might have been quicker than Wiltshire :) take care! — fortunavelut luna 17:44, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
@Dudley Miles: -so what happened- and more pertinently, can this be marked as resolved? — fortunavelut luna 16:23, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes it is resolved. I got a copy through my local library. BL still does not appear to have a copy. Thanks very much for your help. Dudley Miles (talk) 17:22, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Quick question about Oxford Reference[edit]

Hello. Is anyone able to find the page number for this reference please?Zigzig20s (talk) 04:48, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Or here. Do I just not cite the page number?Zigzig20s (talk) 04:49, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
According to GBooks, a Woolfolk is mentioned in Volume 3 page 360. However, the preview for the page isn't there nor does it mention the first name Austin. I presume it's right but not 100% sure. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 05:40, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Google preview shows a brief OCR'd snippet of page p. 489 (part of the index), which lists "Wollfolk, Austin, 3:360–361" ("Wollfolk" is probably just an error in the OCR). The pages surrounding those two, which are not part of the preview, also suggest that "Woolfolk" would fit there alphabetically. --Usernameunique (talk) 05:54, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
User:Usernameunique: I've created Austin Woolfolk. Should I add p. 489 then?Zigzig20s (talk) 07:06, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Zigzig20s, no, p. 489 is just the index which states that the pages Woolfolk are on are 360 and 361. I'll try to take a look at the book in the coming days and scan the pages in question to be sure. --Usernameunique (talk) 07:11, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I mean I can read the text on the website because I have an account, but it won't give me the page numbers.Zigzig20s (talk) 07:13, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
For reference works whose entries are arranged in an alphabetical order, I don't think there's a very pressing need to cite page numbers. You can simply cite the specific entry, for example using {{cite encyclopedia}} with the title of the entry in |title= and the title of the encyclopedia in |encyclopedia=. – Uanfala 10:04, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
Zigzig20s, confirmed that his entry appears in volume 3, pp. 360–61. The last words on 360 are "He went on, 'Let no man speak of the humanity of Woolfolk,' Woolfolk"; the first words on 361 are "brutally assaulted Lundy for his stance and was arrested, tried, and convicted for the attack; the judge fined him just one dollar." If you would like a scan of the actual pages (and copyright info) just email me. --Usernameunique (talk) 17:31, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
User:Usernameunique: No it's fine. I can read it all on the website. Would you like to update Austin Woolfolk please? I have removed the "in use" tag for you.Zigzig20s (talk) 20:29, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

FunkMonk, I've sent the first two, and may be able to get a few more in the coming days. In the future you'll probably get faster results by posting the bibliographic information (especially DOIs/JSTOR numbers) instead of just bare URLs; the two I sent were pretty readily accessible online, but most of the links require additional cobbling of information to figure out what the exact article you're looking for is. --Usernameunique (talk) 01:26, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

Tete-Rousse glacier engineering articles from[edit]

There are a couple of news articles about engineering work on the Tête-Rousse glacier that I'd like to access; my account there seems to have expired. I can't tell if all these are relevant from the snippets I can see on, but it should be clear from the article what's relevant -- what I'm looking for is articles about projects to investigate or drain the water pockets that build up in the glacier. The water pockets burst in 1892, causing a flash flood that led to over 200 deaths, which is what led to the engineering projects.

The Vancouver Public Library system has no recent textbooks or other WP:MEDRS-compliant books on breastfeeding, and none are available on interlibrary loan either.

It seems that only page 51-59 deal with the history the Guatemalian parliament, and actually the bibliography turns out to be much more useful here, as it includes several title that could be interesting and are easily available.

1967 TV production of A Month in the Country starring Susannah York and Ian McShane[edit]

Information about 1967 production of A Month in the Country starring Susannah York and Ian McShane
The following discussion has been closed. Please do not modify it.

I have it on good authority that Turgenev's A Month in the Country aired on TV in the UK in 1967, starring Susannah York, Ian McShane, and Michael Wells. If someone has a subscription to the archives of any UK newspaper (that has TV listings) for that time period, could you search and find the exact air date (and channel) for me? (For some reason both IMDB and BFI have the first air date as 1978.)

I think the best way to find it in a digital newspaper archive is to simply search under "month in the country" from 1965–1970. If that doesn't yield anything, search under turgenev, or "Susannah York", or another of the three leads.

  • Note: The BBC aired this as a teleplay in 1966 in the series "Theatre 625", but that was a different production/cast.

If you could send me a copy of your finding, that would be helpful as well, as I may try to update IMDB with the correct info, and they will require proof. My email address is

Article being improved: A Month in the Country.

  • UPDATE: Linda Thorson, who was also in the cast, filmed it before she was in The Avengers, which she joined in early 1968. In a newspaper interview published February 1968 [8] she says she filmed A Month in the Country "this summer" (that would be summer of 1967) "for U.S. television", so maybe it aired in the U.S. rather than the UK the first time around. So it looks like I need someone to check U.S. TV listings for 1967.

--Softlavender (talk) 05:40, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Softlavender, I checked a couple of databases, primarily U.S. but with some British coverage, and "month in the country" during 1965 - 1970 did not produce anything relevant other than the article quoting Linda Thorson that you already found. John M Baker (talk) 14:23, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
Other than the interview Softlavender found in The Ottawa Journal, the oldest result returned by searches of, NewsBank, and ProQuest is the review: Conlogue, Ray (8 July 1978). "Tragedy-farce jars slightly on television". The Globe and Mail. Toronto. p. 33. It fits in with IMDb's Canada release date of 8 July 1978.
To further muddy the waters, database Film Index International's details for the film (which come from BFI) gives a year and publication date of 1985, and a "first transmission date" of June 26, 1987. It lists as "Supplemental data" an article in Variety, 17 July 1985, p. 44, ISSN 0042-2738, which might be worth tracking down. I don't have ready access to the full text of that. --Worldbruce (talk) 17:42, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
The Birmingham Daily Post for Monday 27 February 1967, p16, has the play listed as being on BBC2 that night at 9:05 pm as part of Theatre 625 but it doesn't give any details about the cast. Nthep (talk) 18:19, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
Add, there's a cast list for this version in the Radio Time,s here, and this isn't York and Wells but Hywel Bennett and Michele Dotrice. I can find a reference to four performances of the play starring Susannah York and Michael Wells being staged in the grounds of their home in June 1967 (The Stage 8 June 1967 p13) and this does also have Linda Thorson in it - billed as Linda Berethorson - but no reference to it being filmed. Nthep (talk) 18:45, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
Nthep, yes, please see the Note in my OP; that was a different production and different cast, not the one I'm looking for. Softlavender (talk) 02:44, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Note to everyone: Thanks for your efforts. I'm specifically looking for daily TV listings (in either newspapers or publications like TV Guide or Radio Times), rather than encyclopedias of film database registries. That said, I'm beginning to come to the conclusion that, although the item was clearly filmed in 1967 (we have immediate firsthand evidence from a cast member, in two interviews, that supports that), it was not aired until 1977, in Singapore (as IMDB release dates state: [9]; also a lot of the Google results for the item are from Singapore). I think the reason was probably as follows: Although produced in the UK (I think), it was filmed in NTSC format, for U.S. television, to be broadcast there. For whatever reason though the airing was scrapped -- most likely because for the 1960s it was a dull, obscure, static period piece (even Turgenev never intended for it to be staged, according to what I have read), not something that would interest U.S. audiences of the late 1960s. Also, while Susannah York was a known quantity in the UK (at least on a minor level), in the U.S she wasn't really, and the rest of the cast (even McShane) were unknowns. Anyway, the item aired in Canada in 1978, over a decade after filming. And it somehow took until 1983 for it to air in the U.S., and then a PAL version of it aired in the UK in 1985: [10]. I've surmised my theory from snippet views of a couple of books on GoogleBooks, but I can't see the full pages that talk about it. Bottom Line: If someone can find and search daily TV listings (of the late 1960s), particularly for the U.S., that would be great. If not, I'll accept the theory I just related. Softlavender (talk) 02:44, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Softlavender, the searches did include daily TV listings from that period, so I think we can safely conclude that "A Month in the Country" was not aired in the U.S. in the 1965 - 1970 period under that title. Your theory sounds plausible, although it's probably WP:SYN. John M Baker (talk) 15:54, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks very much for the clarification, John M Baker. Nthep has left some fascinating further on my talkpage [11], which more or less substantiates everything I've read and surmised about it. Thanks again all. Let's leave this open a day or two more (just so people can view the endgame), and then mark it resolved. Softlavender (talk) 23:14, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
UPDATE: Need U.S. daily TV listings for July 8, 1978

Nthep supplied me with a TV listing page from the Lansing State Journal which showed that A Month in the Country starring Susannah York aired on WWTV, the local CBS affiliate, on July 8. 1978 -- the same date it aired in Canada. If someone could find at least one other U.S. state that aired the broadcast, I might be able to at least update the IMDB listing of its U.S. premiere. (Otherwise, the broadcast may simply have been some sort of sharing Michigan's neighbor Canada.) Thanks, Softlavender (talk) 01:49, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

In 1978, WWTV was a CBS affiliate, broadcasting from Cadillac, MI on channel 9, but there was another channel 9 closer to Lansing: CBET, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) station broadcasting from Windsor, Ontario (a.k.a. "South Detroit"). The Detroit Free Press, Sandusky Register, and Norwalk Reflector all list the program at 9:30 on channel 9, and the two Ohio papers are explicit that it is the Canadian channel. A note in article WWTV says its current signal can be picked up as far south as Lansing only when CBET is off the air. That tidbit is unsourced, but it sounds right and likely was true in 1978 too. TV listings in the Lansing State Journal are much more likely to be for CBET than WWTV. --Worldbruce (talk) 04:57, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
Wow, good catch, Worldbruce! I fucked up; evidently there are two Channel 9s in the TV listing page Nthep sent me; one 9 is inside the little TV-screen icon that many TV Guide listings have, and one 9 is in parentheses. I had looked at the former, but the airing of A Month in the Country at 9:30 PM was on the latter (down further in the station identification list), CBET, just as you mentioned. Wow, you should get the fact-checking award of the week. (And I thought I was a diligent fact-checker!) Also, I had no idea about the incestuous relationship between Canadian and American broadcasters in that area. So, Nthep was absolutely correct when he wrote on my talkpage that "The earliest screening I can find is July 1978 on CBC Channel 9 in July 1978 where it was seen in both Canada and the northern US." Thanks very much! That part of the mystery is solved at least. Softlavender (talk) 05:23, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

I would welcome any further information about the 1967 production of Turgenev's A Month in the Country, which starred Susannah York, Ian McShane, Michael Wells, Linda Thorson (aka Linda Bergthorson during the stage production), and others. It was staged in mid June 1967 at Susannah York's and Michael Well's estate (house and garden) in Sussex, filmed (there?) that summer in NTSC format with mostly the same cast, for U.S. television, but was not actually aired anywhere until 1977 at the earliest (IMDB listing). It was also the first color TV movie filmed for the American market. Right now the sparse information on it seems to be coming mainly from film/television magazines and the like (such as those listed below), mainly from the late 1960s or the 1970s.

Need 1973(?) article from Motion (Canadian film magazine)[edit]

Hello again. If anyone has access to databases (or hard copies) that include these magazines/articles:

  • BKSTS Journal (British Kinematograph Sound and Television Society), Volume 56, Issues 2–12. Circa 1974. The page number in the GoogleBooks bound volume is p. 138 [12], but the specific issue will have a (and much lower) different page number. The quotation I see on GoogleBooks snippet is "In 1967 they were persuaded to make a transfer in Hollywood from 525 NTSC tape shot by Intertel entirely on location in a private house and its garden. The film: 'Month in the Country' and in my view, the result produced surprisingly good technical quality."
  • Motion (Canadian magazine). 1973 (???). The GoogleBooks bound volume appears to be page 222 [13], but the specific issue will have a different (and much lower) page number. The quotation I see on GoogleBooks snippet is "Well, I did A Month in the Country that way, with Susannah York. We used television cameras. Philips Plumbicons. We shot it on video tape and used the technicolor process - which was in its early days - and adapted this to 35mm colour film." My best guess, from doing some more searching, is that the specific issue is probably Volume 3: November-December 1973. Page number unknown.
  • Conlogue, Ray. "Tragedy-farce jars slightly on television". The Globe and Mail. 8 July 1978. p. 33.

Neuphilologische Mitteilungen[edit]

Second time in a few days that I need something from NM 1949--and this is what JSTOR lists: 1949 (Vol. 50) -- No. 2/4 1949 pp. 49-96, 1-55; No. 1 1949 pp. 1-48. Now, Google snippet view doesn't tell me what I need, precisely (it's on page 200, containing mention/review of Die Predigtmärlein (Contes Moralisés) des Fr. Nicole Bozon), but I do know that NM has more pages in one year than these, which don't make any sense anyway. Do any of you know? Is there something odd that happened in Finland in 1949?

ISSN seems to be 0365-9615 or 0027-1403, the first ISSN points to different journals, propably due to a merger. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the 1960 volume. --Cimbail (talk) 18:09, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

No, sorry. The issues from 2014 onwards are available on the web (here), and there seems to be access via a library account to the issues from 1995 to present. But the 1960s are only held at a number of libraries, and I took the information from a German library catalog. Unfortunately, the next library with the 1960 volume on stock is far out of reach for me. --Cimbail (talk) 18:29, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

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


I'm in need of the following articles, which are not to obtain from German libraries:

  • 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.
Note: just got a message from my library, not available in Germany. But the next request is free ...

General note: Thank you for your efforts. And feel free to visit your German partner page. I take part in the resource exchange there, and would be pleased in helping foreign authors looking for something not available in their home country. Have a nice day, --Cimbail (talk) 13:26, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

@Cimbail: Email me for the first source. For the third one, I'm having difficulty even finding information on "The Pink Paper". Do you have an OCLC or ISSN number for it? Alternatively, any webpage with additional information? ~ Rob13Talk 09:55, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
@Rob13: - Thank you for caring. I have added OCLC numbers and an ISSN number above. Here in Germany we have a well-doing journal catalogue, and I usually don't care about OCLC numbers. Sorry, I will post complete requests in the future. Mail is out within minutes. --Cimbail (talk) 10:35, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
No worries, Cimbail. I don't usually need an OCLC number to find something, but a title as generic as "The Pink Paper" has apparently been used many times before. I was finding loads of results, but not the right one. Looking now. ~ Rob13Talk 10:53, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
Doing... Third one via interlibrary loan. Fairly confident I can get that one. The second one is available at the New York Public Library in their Manuscripts department, but it may be difficult to get an actual copy. They certainly wouldn't allow photocopying in the traditional sense. ~ Rob13Talk 11:03, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
First paper received, thank you, --Cimbail (talk) 11:43, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
Cimbail, email me for The Pink Paper. Pretty surprised to get this one---it has been listed as "Awaiting Unfilled Processing" for several weeks, which I assumed meant it was an ILL dud. --Usernameunique (talk) 17:15, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
Got it, and the page is really helpful, since the few lines include information I had no citation for. Thank you very much. I wil leave this open for another 4 weeks, since there is still a little bit of hope for the third paper. --Cimbail (talk) 18:14, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Cimbail, struck out twice today on Capital Gay. ILL came back unfilled, and though I dug through the NYPL's collection (the ones that BU Rob13 mentioned), their collection before 1988 is extremely spotty, and does not include the issue in question. I think your best bet would be to contact libraries individually and ask if they might check their collections. --Usernameunique (talk) 22:05, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

@Cimbail and Usernameunique: Looks like the Tretter Collection near to me only has the 1982:Jan.15 issue listed on their site, but I will reach out and see if they have the July 1985 issue and/or Gale access. The University of Chicago libraries has more issues listed, but I don't see the requested issue here. I've sent an email to the Tretter curator. Will update you when I hear back. = paul2520 (talk) 21:32, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
@Cimbail: Unfortunately, the Tretter Collection does not have this issue. I second Usernameunique's suggestion to reach out to individual libraries. Looks like the OCLC links will let you ask a librarian. Mention that you live in Germany and are a volunteer at Wikipedia! = paul2520 (talk) 02:15, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

So, there have been lots of efforts put into this request, beside the resources I have put in by myself. Alas, two out of three difficult-to-obtain papers have been found, and I really appreciate your help. I'll close this request and try some individual requests to libraries and queer archives. Thank you for your help, it's really appreciated. Special thanks to Paul2520 and Usernameunique for theit suggestion to reach out to individual libraries. My experience is that mentioning Wikipedia opens many doors that are usually closed to the public. --Cimbail (talk) 12:15, 14 November 2017 (UTC) {{resolved}}
