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 scans requests due to copyright
  • 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.

@Nightclubbing: I have access to these articles. Please Wikimail me and I'll send them to you. —Bruce1eetalk 17:07, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
Nightclubbing, Nexis gives no author for #2-#4 and attributes #1 to Michael Cragg. Doesn't necessarily mean that there wasn't any author in the print edition for the others, but most of these are very small summaries/recommendations, so it may also be that they were part of a larger section by someone. (Nexis being a text-based database, it wouldn't show the original layout.) — Pajz (talk) 17:09, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

The Spectator 3rd December 1988[edit]

  • 3 Dec 1988, The Spectator Archive, containing " I much enjoyed Susan Hillmore's novella The Greenhouse (Collins/Harvill, £9.95) for its well-bedded flowery prose but I liked an equally ..."

For The Greenhouse (novel)

Thanks, GrahamHardy (talk) 22:49, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Here's a link to the review itself, with a bit more of it visible in the non-subscriber preview: [3]. Cheers, gnu57 23:13, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
The article seems not to be a full review, but merely Anthony Blond's entry in the Spectator's 'Books of the Year' feature, alongside the recommendations of other public intellectuals and literati. The full sentence about The Greenhouse is:

I much enjoyed Susan Hillmore's novella The Greenhouse (Collins/Harvill, £9.95) for its well-bedded flowery prose but I liked an equally properly written first novel, (which I also published), Marks of Weakness by Geraldine Jones (Anthony Blond/Quartet, £11.95) which only got one (good) review, from Isobel Quigly, who didn't like our jacket.

Blond goes on to say more about the Jones book and another by A. J. Ayer, but I doubt that the full text would be relevant to you. Cheers, gnu57 23:27, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your help GrahamHardy (talk) 07:40, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
I would like to request these additional sources to improve the article (The links here are mentions of reviews, not the reviews themselves):
  • The Independent: Praised the book as one of the "best books of 2000".
  • The Independent review (may be the same): quote: "Hillmore's writing is dense and dappled with colour and light--a novel of strange power."[4]
  • The Literary Review review: quote: "...Moving and poetic...The Greenhouse should be read for the beauty of its descriptions, its original vision, and its complete lack of vugarity, rare in a contemporary novel."[5]
  • Washington Times review: quote:"There is haunting beauty in this melancholy tale."[6]
  • A review by Geoffrey Bailey: quote: "the sad drama of a family lovingly watched over by the greenhouse"[7]
  • The Greenhouse's shortlist entry for the Sunday Express's Book of the Year prize.[8]. Cheers, gnu57 15:47, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

I don't have a copy of the article/edition. The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts have the daily editions of The Hollywood Reporter for that period which is where I saw the information.

The Seattle Times archives: Newsbank[edit]

Per talk page discussions, it seems that Caroline Brady died in Bellevue Washington, on 5 November 1980. I have been unable to find anything resembling an obituary for her, perhaps hindered by the undercoverage of Washington newspapers on and The Seattle Public Library, however, has online access to a number of newspapers, including, with a library card, The Seattle Times (link). Does anyone have a library card, and if so, would you be willing to search through the archive to see if there is any coverage of Brady, particularly an obituary or death notice? Thanks, Usernameunique (talk) 16:07, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

Battle of Noyers[edit]


I have been improving the 59th (Staffordshire) Infantry Division, however there is very little information available regarding the division's actions during the Battle of Noyer, where the division suffered some heavy losses. The following sources discuss the fighting, although they are neither available online or only in snippet form. I have no local access to these sources, which appear would be be able to flesh out the article and detail the division's effort to capture Noyer. Is anyone able to provide the relevant pages from these sources, or directly edit the article with information from them?

I am after an article (possibly a couple) from The Sunday Times from early 1980 (probably 16 March 1980, but certainly before 26 April). It concerns the death of Blair Peach and the report produced by Commander CASS. I suspect it was from the S Times Insight team, but maybe not.

Even a subscription to The Times doesn't give you access to The Sunday Times archive - it's a separate file that is only accessible through Gale. - SchroCat (talk) 13:17, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Reviews of Ancient Evenings[edit]

Hello, I am looking for the text of two reviews of Norman Mailer's novel Ancient Evenings, for use at Ancient Evenings.

The first review: "Norman in Egypt" by Harold Bloom, published in the April 28, 1983 issue of The New York Review of Books, Volume 30, Number 7. There is an extract from the review here. EBSCO contains only a listing of the review, not its text.

The second review: "In Pyramid and Palace" by Richard Poirier, published in the June 10, 1983 issue of The Times Literary Supplement, Issue 4184, pages 591-592. ISSN is 0307-661X and the Accession Number 16545455. There is an extract from the review here.

I have no clue about whether this is an extremely fringe-field but am having a hard time in locating any library, that holds this journal/magazine.
Making a simultaneous request over the resource exchange at German wiki, might serve better given that ISU seems to be a Germany based organisation. I note though that the German National Library catalog returns no relevant holding which is weird:-( WBGconverse 14:29, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
