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 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.

For Bangladeshi nationalism and potentially other articles. First source is available at Princeton University library and second one, at University of Michigan.

Thanks, Zayeem (talk) 18:47, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

I don't have access to either volume, but since it's stated above that 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, I've managed to piece together the table of contents for Osmany 1992 via strategically using Google Books' snippet view
  • Preface [vii–viii]
  • Introduction [1–10]
  • I. Muslim consciousness & political awakening in Bangladesh [11–40]
  • II. Bangladeshi nationalism: The process of interaction between secular and Islamic elements up to 1947 [41–74]
  • III. Bangladeshi nationalism and the emerging middle class [75–108]
  • IV. Secularism and Islam as political forces in Bangladesh [109–155]
  • Epilogue [156–159]
  • Bibliography [160–168]
Hopefully this helps! Umimmak (talk) 20:01, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I did see the guideline but wanted to see the table of content first, thanks by the way. For the first source, pages 40-60, and for second source, Introduction, Chapters II and III would suffice I think. I hope it's within limit. Thanks. --Zayeem (talk) 15:20, 7 August 2020 (UTC)

#1 and #7 is to be used in Actors of the Comédie-Française. #2 is to check for bibliography on Polish Woman. #3 and #5 is to be used in Actors of the Comédie-Française, La Boudeuse, and The Embarrassing Proposal. #4 and #6 is to be used in La Boudeuse.

If "getting the most of the request would not be diffucult", I suggest you obtain the material yourself. I believe the general purpose of this page is to support editors who have difficulty accessing a resource. I'm afraid I cannot help with #5. — Pajz (talk) 18:21, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Need access or sight of the preamble to the Clywedog Reservoir Joint Authority Act 1963[edit]

For Clywedog reservoir There has been a recent debate about the purpose of this reservoir. Many years ago before retirement I was professionally part of the team revising and maintaining the operating rules for the reservoir, all of which track back to the original Act. A quotation of the Acts preamble has been dismissed by an editor as an "Author;'s POV" . I just need somebody with access to a legal library to look up the act and copy, scan, write out the preamble which sets out the purpose and for which I would be most grateful.

The Indian encyclopaedia[edit]

  • The Indian encyclopaedia : biographical, historical, religious, administrative, ethnological, commercial and scientific (1st ed.). New Delhi: Cosmo Publications. 2002. ISBN 9788177552706.

In the article Oachira Temple, the topynomy section is unsourced. I searched in google books for "Omkarachira", "Oymanchira", and "Uvachanchira", and they all appear in the Kamli-Kyouk Phyu volume of the Indian Encylopedia. No snippets are available, and it doesn't identify the page number. Possibly the entry for Kayamkulam or Krishnapuram or Kollam? It would be great if we could source that section of the article (which should probably be moved to Oachira, but that's another issue).

Philadelphia horse trough[edit]

I need the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places nomination for Horse Trough at 315 S 9th St to help save the page from deletion. A merge might be possible if it can be established that the item was installed by the Philadelphia Fountain Society. The item is listed on page 2 of this document which says it was registered on 23 Feb 1971. Unfortunately, only very recent nominations seem to be available online.

Works for Lucius Papirius Cursor[edit]

I'm not entirely sure of the reference as I've found conflicting citations. The pages I need should deal with the Temple of Quirinus (especially pp. 185-187). They should be written by Filippo Coarelli.

  • Edward Togo Salmon, Samnium and the Samnites, Cambridge University Press, 1967. ISBN 9780521135726.

I need chapter VI "The Second Samnite War", pp. 214-255, and page 324.

  • Robert Develin, The Practice of Politics at Rome 366-167 B.C., Latomus, 1985. ISBN 9782870311288

I don't have page numbers, I would need someone to scan me the table of contents first.

@Pajz: Thank you, but unfortunately it's not the pages I needed. I understand now that the Lexicon Topographicum Urbis Romae was published in several tomes, then seven supplements have been published. As I said above, I wasn't sure of the reference I found, which was something like "Lexicon IV". I thought it meant supplement IV, but apparently it was volume 4 of the main series. Sorry about that. So the correct ref is:

1980+ sources for a retired golfer[edit]

Hello. I'm looking for any sources from 1980+ onwards for my draft on Sharron Moran. Specifically I'm looking for two things: 1) When did she retire from the LPGA? I see sources that state she was a former pro in an 1982 and 1987 source from, but I've seen sources that state she has played on a LPGA tour event during these years. Maybe she retired in the 1980s then came back? It's also possible she switched professional tours. 2) When did she start teaching golf? Like above, I see sources that suggest she was teaching golf in the 1980s. These two sources also suggest that she's still teaching as of the 2010s. Though I don't want a massive gap in her career if there are sources available during this time range. Thanks! MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 22:52, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

How did you tell which collection it was under? Darkwarriorblake / SEXY ACTION TALK PAGE! 15:52, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
@Darkwarriorblake: That's not an easy question to answer. It's often a good idea to start with the general-purpose collections like ProQuest and EBSCO which cover a wide range of topics and sources. Other collections, like Oxford Bibliographies Online, are more specialized and only need be used if they focus on topics you're after. You can find out what each collection covers by clicking on their information links. But with experience you'll get to know which ones to use. —Bruce1eetalk 16:46, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Pages from Singapore's 100 Historical Places to remove copyvios[edit]

Hello. I require the entry on Jinricksha Station from the following book to remove copyvio from Jinrikisha Station:

  • Singapore's 100 Historical Places. National Heritage Board. 2002. p. 80. ISBN 9814068233.

I need page 80 for sure per this Google snippet view. As for the spelling, Jinricksha and Jinrikisha were merged together per the article history.

Update: I've just discovered that Boat Quay and Masjid Omar Kampong Melaka are tagged for copyvioes as well with the same source. Therefore, I need the entry for Boat Quay (page 66) and Omar Kampong Malacca Mosque (page 82). If any of these entries happen to be more than one page, I'd appreciate that as well.

@WhisperToMe It looks like The Journal of Modern History (Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 1929-) 91/1 is dated 2019, not 2017. IS the volume number correct, and the year number you gave perhaps the year the article was written, not the year of the volume?
The online catalog of Országgyűlési Könyvtár says that they have the volume, so it may be possible to get it through interlibrary copy in the future. I don't know how to make a link to the catalog entry, and there's no ISSN listed, so you'll have to identify it by journal title.

Source search for I.W. Cornwall, a British archaeologist[edit]

Hello. I'm looking for sources for my draft on I.W. Cornwall. I'm looking for two specific things:

  • 1: Cornwall was born in India in 1909 and later went to private school at Wellington College in England. I would like to know which year/age or rough timeline he moved to England. It'd have to be somewhere between the 1900s to 1920s as he graduated from St John's College, Cambridge in 1931.
  • 2: I have a date of death for Cornwall (18 November 1994) but not a place of death. I presume it's Surrey as the A&C Black version of Who Was Who has an address in Surrey, England, but I'd like to be sure. Surprisingly, I haven't found a newspaper source from 1994+ that talks about his death, so I'm not sure.

For these two points, I highly assume that if an obituary from 1994+ mentions Cornwall, it'd have his place of death. As for when he moved from India to England, i dunno if an obituary would have it. Encyclopedias entries haven't been able to fill in these two holes. I've found sources under the names I.W. Cornwall, Ian Wolfran Cornwall and Ian Wolfram Cornwall. I'm pretty sure Wolfram is a misspelling as the British sources I've found spelt his middle name as Wolfran. So, the first two naming versions might have more luck than the last. Thanks! MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 01:18, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

Edit: Just found when he attended St. John's College, so I don't need #1. #2 I still need. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 01:50, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

@Pigsonthewing: In regards to his death, I am looking for 1994+ obituaries for sure. Whether one exists or not is the question, and i had no luck finding a specific obit with this info. Therefore, i have to be general. Thank you for the suggestion. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 19:26, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

"Trumpet" in OED[edit]

What does the Oxford English Dictionary say about the etymology of "trumpet"? Ovinus (talk) 08:39, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

@Ovinus: This is the entry for "trumpet" in The Concise Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology (2003):


in 224......... sb. XIII. — (O)F. trompette, dim. of trompe TRUMP1; see -ET.
Hence, or — (O)F. trompeter, -eur, trumpet in 224......... vb. XVI, trumpeter XV.
I hope that makes sense to you! BTW you can access this book yourself at Oxford Reference in The Wikipedia Library Bundle. —Bruce1eetalk 09:53, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
@Ovinus: The Oxford English Dictionary itself provides the following etymology: "< French trompette (14th cent.), diminutive < trompe, trump n.1." In turn, "trump" (n.1) has the following etymology: "Middle English < French trompe (12–13th cent. in Hatzfeld & Darmesteter) = Provençal tromba, trompa, Italian tromba; ulterior derivation uncertain." As one might expect, this is similar to the etymology in the Concise Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology. Both OED entries bear the caption, "This entry has not yet been fully updated (first published 1915)." John M Baker (talk) 16:18, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

The title is "Flying Gang rejects Treaty of Utrecht, will spare Dutch and English: “New York Dispatch"" about a gang of pirates, to verify some of the claims made. It is used as a source in the book The Republic of Pirates: Being the True and Surprising Story of the Caribbean Pirates and the Man who Brought Them Down but the accucracy is questionable.
