Making a request

edit

Before asking volunteers to look for your source, try finding it yourself with the tools at your disposal.

In particular, eligible editors can use the Wikipedia Library, which gives access to content provided by numerous academic publishers.

  • Though we would prefer you to ask for a specific journal, article or work, we will accept open-ended questions. You can ask for all kinds of sources here, either on this page or by writing directly to an active user.
  • Provide as much detail as possible: a full citation with author, title, publisher, date and identifiers like DOI, ISBN, ISSN, PMID, OCLC, etc. Indicate which article you need this for.
  • Due to copyright restrictions, we cannot send you full book/thesis copies. Narrow down your request to a specific chapter or page(s).
  • Add the {{Resolved}} template when your request is completed.
  • Filled requests are archived. Requests unfilled after three months will also be archived.

Fulfilling a request

edit
  • Anyone may offer advice and fulfill requests, in full or in part. When fulfilling a part of a request, tell others which one so that they don't have to do the same work.
  • Notify (mention) the requester using {{u|REQUESTER_USERNAME}}.
  • You can:
Copyright tips
  • Respect copyrights and terms of services of any online services you use.
  • Limit sharing content online that the copyright holders have restricted access to to the minimum level: only to the individuals who need it, only to the minimal degree necessary to fulfil the request and only to improve Wikipedia. We share content under a presumed non-commercial, educational, fair use purpose to improve our articles or create new ones.
  • Whenever possible, share copies privately. You should not upload copyrighted copies from print publications or online databases for unrestricted distribution via open websites.
  • Individual editors are solely responsible for sharing copyrighted content and assume all legal risks. Check the laws of your jurisdiction to make sure you are comfortable and safe giving access to it.

@SilverTiger12, Are you sure about the publication information you cite for number 6? I'm looking at what I think is volume one issue 4 and just can't find that article. Also the link you provide is to a november issue, issue 4 is from April. Eddie891 Talk Work 19:53, 5 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Unfortunately, no, I'm not certain about the publication information; I tracked it down as a potential source second or third-hand a while ago. Doing a search again, I can't track down where the issue 4 part came from, just that it is in volume 1. My apologies. SilverTiger12 (talk) 21:15, 5 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, I will look through volume 1. Unfortunately it has no real page numbers. But I will do my best, and ping you when I track it down. Eddie891 Talk Work 22:55, 5 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@SilverTiger12: Please clarify what portions of this request are complete and what portions are still outstanding. The tradition method is to strike the list items that you no longer need. Next week I'll be at a library that has 3, 4, and 6, but am reluctant to spend my limited time there scanning hundreds of pages if you may not still need them. --Worldbruce (talk) 19:34, 28 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Worldbruce: I have done so. Only 3, 5, and 6 are still needed. Unfortunately I don't think I can narrow down the needed page ranges in 3 and 6. Although for 3 the most needed part is the section on felids (cats), Miomachairodus in specific, if you only have limited time. And for 6, close to the same: section on felids, Epimachairodus zwierzykii in specific. Happy editing, SilverTiger12 (talk) 19:43, 28 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]

In case it helps at all, here are some URLs for #5:
Let me know you think if it would be useful for me to request an interlibrary loan (which can be physical or digital) for chapter 105 of "Proceedings of Fourth Pakistan Congress of Zoology" through my university. The second WorldCat link says that University of Minnesota, Twin Cities has a copy, and both it and my university are in the Big Ten Academic Alliance, so it should be more likely to be accepted and should be processed faster, compared to it being at some unaffiliated institution.
Solomon Ucko (talk) 02:15, 29 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
A lead! Thank you! I've had a hard enough time finding this source to say yes, please request the interlibrary loan. I think that might actually be what I'm looking for. Happy editing, SilverTiger12 (talk) 18:45, 29 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Perfect! I've requested an ILL for it; I'll let you know when I get updates on its status. Solomon Ucko (talk) 20:08, 29 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@SilverTiger12: I've received the scan. It's short enough that I'll just transcribe it here:

[...]

105. On a Collection of Siwalik Carnivora
Abu Bakr
Department of Zoology, University of the Punjab, Lahore

In the Department of Zoology, Punjab University, the total number of the speciments of fossil Carnivora is eighteen. More collection was made last year. The total number of species that discovered is sixteen. Of these four i.e. Vishnucyon nagriensis, Sivaonyx minor, Lycaena felina and Panthera dhokpathanensis are new. The other speciments also given additional information about the known species. The work has been carried out under Pakistan Foundation, Project No. P-PU/Bio (102).

— p. 51
This is page 51, and https://search.worldcat.org/title/62447645 says the book is 51 pages in total, so this is presumably the last page, so that's it.

Hm, so I'm still looking for the monograph itself. Thank you though. SilverTiger12 (talk) 21:57, 3 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Oh right, hmm... Should I try requesting an inter-library loan and see if my university's librarians can figure something out, perhaps borrowing it or getting a scan from the National Library of Pakistan? Solomon Ucko (talk) 01:08, 4 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
It's a long shot, but I'd appreciate it. SilverTiger12 (talk) 01:37, 4 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Makes sense. I've submitted a request for it. I'll let you know when I get any updates. I'm required to give a deadline, so I gave them about 6 months, since this could be slow. Solomon Ucko (talk) 07:01, 4 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Status update to keep this thread from going stale: My ILL request is still active, though the last status update was my university's libraries sending a manual request to some library (presumably the National Library of Pakistan?) on February 14th. I'm not sure how long this might take, but I hope I'll get it eventually...
Meanwhile, my difficulty in finding this one inspired me to compile a table of all of the information I could find about all of their monographs: Biological Society of Pakistan#Monographs.

To editor SilverTiger12: Issues of De Ingenieur in Nederlandsch Indie are readable here. I didn't find that article, though I didn't look very hard. Maybe that collection is incomplete or maybe the volume or issue is wrong. Alas there is no search engine. Zerotalk 02:18, 14 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@SilverTiger12: Article #6 is in volume 1, issue 11, a pdf of which can be downloaded here. It's on pages 21-40 of the pdf, in print they're numbered IV 185 - IV 202. --Worldbruce (talk) 07:47, 14 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]

1906 article in Arts and Crafts

edit

For Herbert Maryon

According to the below article, The March number of "Arts and Crafts" is, as usual, full of articles which are intended to provide students and art workers with useful information on a variety of subjects in which they are interested. The most important of these articles are "Various Methods of Finishing Oak," by Mr. W. Daniell; "Metal Work," by Mr. H. J. Maryon; "Practical Talks about Wood-Carving," by Mr. H. Turner; "Inlaying," by Mr. A[rthur] C[awdron] Horth; and "Bookbinding," by Mr. F. Sangorski and Mr. G. Sutcliffe. Among the more notable illustrations are reproductions of drawings by Henner, E. Detaille, and Feyen Perrin.

The starting point is to figure out what journal this is—a task not helped by its generic name. There's a good chance that this is a small journal that didn't last long. The article would be Maryon's second published work that I'm aware of, five months after "Early Irish Metal Work", in another small journal. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Usernameunique (talk) 01:42, 24 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Based on the location, maybe [1]? Eddie891 Talk Work 02:18, 6 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks very much for that, Eddie891. I think you're right. I sent an email to a library that looks like it has a copy of the issue in question, but didn't receive a response. I've now submitted an ILL request, so hopefully that will both prove you right, and get the article. --Usernameunique (talk) 05:53, 26 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
How's this going? If you're having trouble with the ILL, I should be able to request an ILL for OCLC 225804755 pretty easily, as my university is within the Big Ten Academic Alliance, and so is one of the libraries that has it. If you received it but it's not the right magazine, if you send me the full newspaper article that prompted your search, I can try to figure out what else it might be. Solomon Ucko (talk) 06:24, 16 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, Sollyucko. Would you mind giving it a go? My library claims that the ILL was unsuccessful; I could try submitting it again, but perhaps you would have better luck if a copy is already within your system. --Usernameunique (talk) 20:19, 31 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Actually, it looks like University of Minnesota, Twin Cities doesn't have that issue, but it looks like the following libraries have it:
Two of these are academic libraries in the US, so I think there's a decent chance of success. My university's ILL department is a bit busy currently, but I'll submit it in a few days and see what happens. If you contact me via Special:EmailUser, I'll send you the scan I receive, if it's successful.
Solomon Ucko (talk) 21:16, 31 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I've submitted an ILL request myself. It might be more complicated than I originally thought, but hopefully they can figure it out without too much difficulty... I'm just confused how issue and volume numbers correspond with months and years... Solomon Ucko (talk) 13:58, 5 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Comparing earlier mentions of Arts and Crafts in The Globe with https://archive.org/details/artscrafts01londuoft confirms that the publisher is Hutchinson & Co. The listing in the catalog of the National Library of Scotland indicates that this is v. 4, no. 22.
My request "has been cancelled by ILL staff for the following reason: Unable to find supplier / The only library that owns this particular year has it as an electronic subscription and they do not have the license to lend it."
I've replied to ask if they can at least provide metadata, as well as sending them a list of libraries that seem to have it in print, narrowed down to Queen's, NLS, and Cambridge, which say they have vol. 4.

Books about Le Touquet in French

edit

For User:Szmenderowiecki/sandbox/Touquet, particularly WWII and post-war reconstruction - will be thrown directly into Le Touquet article

The first article is available through OpenEdition, but The Wikipedia Library access to it is broken, hence my request. The second and third books are very likely offline, and I don't have relevant pages, so I'd appreciate someone with ILL (buying ILL vouchers). Obviously I cannot and will not request everything, but I need some info about what was happening, how many Germans were living in that city, what they were doing there, what did they do with the women, elderly and children who remained in the resort, preparations for the Atlantic Wall as relevant to the city and the reason why Le Touquet was so densely mined even though it had little intrinsic military value. Any relevant excerpts that will reflect on this issue will be welcome. I want to make a text that's max 2 paragraphs, beginning from the internment order of enemy males under 60.

@Szmenderowiecki: Have you considered asking at fr:WP:VB? Solomon Ucko (talk) 16:41, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the ping. It seems that their page is moribund, as it doesn't even get a dozen edits every year. I would definitely have asked them (I had a book or two to ask about Maurice Duplessis but I ultimately decided not to waste my time. Szmenderowiecki (talk) 23:00, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Szmenderowiecki: Hmm, fair enough... My French is limited, but I can try to help. Are you still interested in this? If so, please contact me via Special:EmailUser so I can send you files, and I'll try to request these via ILL; when I receive them, I'll send you the front and back matter. I can try to search for relevant information myself, but if you're able to provide any guidance on where I should look, I would appreciate it. Worst case, I'll just send you the introduction and conclusion in hopes that there's something useful in there. Unless you request otherwise, I'll wait about a week after sending you content before I return the book.
Solomon Ucko (talk) 18:40, 11 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I am still working on my sandbox, so yes, I'd greatly appreciate your efforts there.
The problem is that no library in my country has the books, and pdfs are nowhere to be found. So preferably if you have somebody in France, either in Paris (National Library) or in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, where the town is located, I guess they would have both of the books. Also, because you seem to be based in the United States, check if the Library of Congress has the books, because interlibrary loans to an American library are free, and the LoC has a shitton of everything.
When you get hold of them, send me the ToC and the index (if the books have one), and I will tell more or less what I am looking for.
Thanks for your contributions here. Szmenderowiecki (talk) 19:37, 13 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Szmenderowiecki:
I am indeed in the US, and am a student at a university here. I can request ILL through my university's library system (as I've been doing) or through my county's public libraries. According to WorldCat, these books don't seem to be in the LoC, but Harvard has both and Stanford has one of them, so it should be doable nevertheless.
I've requested both through my university. When I get them, I'll send you photos of any front and back matter, including any ToCs and indices, and you can let me know which parts you think would be most useful.

Sollyucko After some consultation with the French colleagues over at fr.wiki, I was able to fill the necessary gaps in coverage about the city, so the article is now essentially ready and there isn't much need for more sources. Of course, if you started an ILL, then I'd kindly ask to continue this request (particularly #3
)but if you haven't started yet, don't bother yourself. Thanks anyway,, Szmenderowiecki (talk) 11:19, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Szmenderowiecki: Got it, sounds good, thanks for letting me know.
I've already requested both books, and they're now on their way and should arrive in a few days or so, so I won't cancel my requests unless issues arise.
When they arrive, I'll send you the front and back matter, and you can let me know if there's anything you think might be useful for that article or any other article you'd like to work on.

@Arctodus-simus: Alright, I've requested #1, #6, and #12. For the books (and one massive multi-volume article), please use a source such as Google Books or HathiTrust to identify specific page numbers you're interested in. Alternatively, if you let me know what to look for, I can request the whole book in print and try to find the relevant parts (I'm not sending the whole thing), but please note that English is my native language, I studied French for 3 years a few years ago, and I have no specific education in German, since this impacts my ability to find relevant parts of the book.
Solomon Ucko (talk) 04:14, 17 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Arctodus-simus:
I've received a scan of #6. The two main parts are titled "Artiodactyla. Fam. Anoplotheriidae Gray, 1821¹)" (with a corresponding footnote that I can transcribe if you're interested) and "Perissodactyla. Fam. Palaeotheriidae Bonaparte, 1850." Are you also interested in working on articles about perissodactyls or only about artiodactyls specifically?

Maybe good for additional information about Concentration Subcamp in Geislingen an der Steige mentoined her as Natweiler-Struhof Subcamp. No access to it from Germany. Maybe somebody can help? Library US Army Carlisle Thanks, Archivar-Alex (talk) 08:11, 1 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Archivar-Alex:
I can try to request this by interlibrary loan, but do you have any idea what page numbers might be useful? If not, I can try to request the whole thing, but I'm not sure how successful that'll be, given the limited holdings (see OCLC 16257906) and possible copyright issues with scanning the whole thing. If you're not sure what the page numbers are, and I can't get the whole thing, I'll try asking for a table of contents and/or index (hopefully it has something like that), and then we can use that to figure out what page numbers to ask for.
Solomon Ucko (talk) 20:34, 11 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I don‘t really know if there is any content in this book relating to my topic but I think it should be at the end (April 1945…). So I unfortunately don‘t know which pages are relevant. The table of content/ index could be helpful here if it exist.
I‘m appreciate your help. Maybe you have luck to get the whole book.
Don‘t know if the copyright thing is the same as it is for some photos of the US Army Signal Corps??

@Archivar-Alex: Yeah, makes sense. It is created by a US Army soldier, but I'm not sure if it's considered part of their official duties. Anyways, I've attempted to request this, and I'll let you know what response I get. Please email me so I can send you files.
Solomon Ucko (talk) 14:49, 17 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Any news in this topic? Archivar-Alex (talk) 21:07, 1 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Archivar-Alex: I've submitted a request to my university's libraries, who after some back-and-forth, eventually sent a request along to some other library mid-day on March 28th, and are either waiting for a response or taking time to process it. Unfortunately, the amount of time these requests take can vary wildly, depending on various visible and invisible factors, so I don't think I can usefully give you an estimate (though my best guess would be at least a couple of weeks since I think they're going to ship the physical item), but I'm hoping I can get it eventually.
Solomon Ucko (talk) 21:48, 1 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Archivar-Alex: I've received the whole thing. Skimming through it, I see no mention of "Geislingen", "Natweiler", or "Struhof", though I do see some brief mentions of their presence in or near Göppingen.
Solomon Ucko (talk) 06:10, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
That's to bad. Nevertheless thank you for your efforts. I realy thaught their could be some information about it.
Maybe the book could help me by others researches, so I would ask if it is may possible to send me the whole book.
Thank you in advance. Archivar-Alex (talk) 23:14, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Index to Irish Privy Councillors

edit
  • Index to Irish Privy Councillors 1711-1910 (and partially from 1660). Dublin: Privy Council Office. 1910.

For List of Privy Counsellors of Ireland and the articles of each privy counsellor.

It is available in the National Library of Ireland but not viewable online. It is cited as the source of Leigh Rayment's Irish privy counsellor page, which is not a reliable source, so trying to access the original book. Since it is published in 1910, it should be out of copyright.

Thanks, ネイ (talk) 00:46, 21 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@ネイ: The item is a 24-page index, so it likely contains very little data about each privy counsellor. It's available at only the one library, and I don't think WP:RX has any volunteers in Dublin, so your best bet may be asking the National Library of Ireland to scan it for you. You could start with a single page, which costs just €1, to see whether it will be useful for your purpose. --Worldbruce (talk) 16:02, 4 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, ordered a scan and it works for my purpose. Given the scary Terms and Conditions, I am not sure whether I can upload the full text to Wikisource though (the text being produced c. 1910, it is most likely in PD). ネイ (talk) 09:30, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Gambit Chess Openings by Eric Schiller

edit

For Draft:Devin gambit. I'm looking at page 16 of this source, which states that there is coverage of the gambit in Schiller's book ("Devin’s 3. g4 is also in the Eric Schiller’s Gambit Chess Openings, where Schiller assesses the position at move 3 as better for Black"). Unfortunately the book is not at the IA library, and it's not searchable on google. I'd only need the portion of the book that relates to this particular gambit (1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. g4), but I don't have page numbers owing to the lack of google preview.

Thanks a bunch,

Red-tailed hawk (nest) 04:16, 21 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

According to the ToC, it could be p. 570 of the book. I found some discussion of this gambit in another of his books, Unorthodox Chess Openings (p. 201-202), which I sent you via wikimail. It is a very short fragment but maybe it will help. Szmenderowiecki (talk) 00:14, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Vyacheslav84: You can try asking that question on the of Ma'at as a post in the Ancient Egypt discussion Forum for an informed answer. Also, do not forget to mention that you are looking for reliable sources for editing Wikipedia. If you don't get a response by doing that, I know people whom I can ask directly about it. Paul H.

@Vyacheslav84: "The forum does not allow you to register..." There are ongoing problems with the site's coding for registration and login. I myself have been oceassionally locked out at login even though I am a registered user. Hopefully, it will get fixed. This is the problem of low budget, self-funded web site.
However, I noticed that there currently is an active thread about the "tunnel door." It is Mysterious doors in Great Pyramid to be unlocked by Hawass (5 Dec 2023). Its posts contain links to articles and past posts about the door's "unlocking." The latest news, April 11, 2024 is that Hawass ... "has been working with a team of robotics experts with a new robot design. He said that more will be announced early June." This was from an April 11, 2024 lecture by Hawass. I will see if I can find a more reliable source of information. Paul H. (talk) 21:23, 18 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Paul H. Thank you so much, I'll be waiting! --Vyacheslav84 (talk) 14:54, 19 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Vyacheslav84: I looked around and could not find anything in terms of recent, reliable sources about the shafts of the Great Pyramids. It seems detailed information will only be released in June of this year according to the latest chatter. What I found is:

Miatello, L., 2020. On the Pairs of Shafts in the Pyramid of Khufu as Means for the Ascent to the Akhet. Journal of the American Research Center in Egypt, 56, pp.115-141.

More of his papers are at Egyptian religion and iconography.

Weyburne, K., 2021. An Investigation into the Purpose of the Southern Shaft of the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid. PalArch's Journal of Archaeology of Egypt/Egyptology, 18(4), pp.2744-2757.

Of unknown reliability, I found a self-published article Secrets of the small shafts of the pyramid of Cheops. This article has references for the background history of the early archaeological exploration of the shafts that might prove useful.

A source of background information, might be Digital Giza at Harvard University. Paul H. (talk) 03:19, 21 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I am sure though that you want to upload it to Wikipedia as it's public domain, but here I just think that Harvard are being assholes for restricting access to public domain documents (I tried maniulating the width and height of the image in question but Harvard sysadmins aren't that stupid, so the request redirected me to the login page).

For Arcas and about 10 other articles about American sounding rockets.

Houston, we have a problem! While searching for sources about Arcas sounding rocket, I found that some of the pictures of it (like that scheme) comes from scanned pages of a summary report about 18 sounding rockets, published on 18 April 1961. Scanned pages were available at "rocketryonline.com" website (archived, but pictures weren't archived).

Searching for that report, I found another report, about Aerobee, on the website of rocket simulation software RASAero: [6]. Schemes of Aerobee in that report are in the same style as schemes of Arcas, showing that the reports are from one series. That report revealed that the reports in question were not from NASA itself, but from Vought Astronautics. It also contains a list of other reports of the series. The first page of document contains accession and NASA Contractor Report (CR) numbers. So, to locate other ~18 reports, I tried to find it on NTRS, where all such technical reports are to be found.

I found nothing. Not by title, not by CR number, not by contract number (NAS1-1013), not by author (Vought). Maybe it is on the "NASA Registered Content" part of NTRS? That would be strange, as only report on motors was classified ("Confidential"). Thanks, Trasheater Midtier🐉(talk) 16:57, 15 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Santa Barbara newspaper articles about the movie Foes

edit

Foes ([9]) is an obscure science fiction film that was shot in the Santa Barbara, California, area (and on Anacapa Island) around 1977. There's very little information about it. I think it's possible that newspapers in the Santa Barbara area wrote about the filming. The newspapers are digitized, but access is restricted: [10]. On the off-chance that there's someone who's local to Santa Barbara and able to visit the public library, good keywords would be "John Coats" (director), "Foes" (title), "UFO" (major plot element). I realize that this is an unusual and difficult ask.

Thanks, Mackensen (talk) 02:33, 6 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Regular Newspapers.com (WP:Library-wise) only shows a smattering of local TV listings from the early 1980s--all of them from Philadelphia.

This entry suggests that Adventures in a TV Nation was reviewed on page 73 of the 3 July 1998 edition of Entertainment Weekly. Who wrote the review? How long is that review? Is it significant coverage?

But I don't find it in ProQuest archives. – Doc TaxonTalk • 17:11, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Found it in EBSCO. The November 27, 1998 review by Bruce Fretts is only 1 sentence long: "In-your-face documentarian and working-class advocate chronicles the development of his late, Emmy-award-winning newsmagazine show". MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 17:47, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I searched in June and July editions, but not in November. Okay then ... – Doc TaxonTalk • 23:23, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
MrLinkinPark333 (talk · contribs) and Doc Taxon (talk · contribs), I misread the "N 27 '98" as being "Number 27 '98". Thank you both for your help! Cunard (talk) 09:08, 15 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
