Resource Request

Fixing references and common medical problems!
Warning: for legal reasons, we must note that the Resource Exchange cannot fix any medical problems. But it can fix references.

Finding a sourceEdit

Tips for finding a source yourselfEdit

  • Send a request to the author(s) of research papers for a copy of their paper by email.
  • Check what sources are available to you in The Wikipedia Library – editors active for at least six months with over 500 edits, at least 10 of them in the last month, and with no active blocks have immediate access to the Wikipedia Library Bundle.
    • Available databases in the bundle include: Gale, EBSCO, JSTOR, Oxford and ProQuest
  • Consider applying for access to additional Wikipedia Library sources at The Wikipedia Library Card Platform.
    • Additional databases include:,, Project MUSE, Taylor & Francis and much more.
  • Search for periodical titles in the Wikipedia Library database index at The Wikipedia Library/A–Z.
  • 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, if applicable.
  • If the article is paywalled, a browser extension may bypass the paywall. Try Unpaywall for academic journals or Bypass Paywalls Clean (Firefox, Chrome) for news websites.

Note that sites like Library Genesis (LibGen) and Sci-Hub offer direct, free access to a 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 requestEdit

  • 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, OCLC, etc.
  • Indicate which Wikipedia articles are being improved.
  • Once a request has been fulfilled add the {{Resolved}} template.
  • Filled requests are archived.
  • Requests unfilled after three months will be archived.

Fulfilling a requestEdit

  • 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.

Hi guys, I'm looking for the Worms game reviews from the magazines listed above (the list will be updated if I find info about other reviews that I need but can't find online). I'm working on the article about Worms in another language section of Wikipedia, and I have reasons to believe that these articles will help me with my research. These particular magazines are nowhere to be found online and not even for sale, and in my country there's no way to request anything from American or British libraries. Hoping you could help me.

Thanks, Coolak (talk) 11:22, 18 October 2022 (UTC)

@Coolak: Requested via ILL. We'll see how many of these I actually obtain copies of. Compassionate727 (T·C) 14:23, 28 October 2022 (UTC)
@Coolak:, Are you only interested in reviews for the original Amiga/PC port of "Worms"? I found a review for the Game Boy port from British "Nintendo Magazine system". KHR FolkMyth (talk) 15:04, 30 October 2022 (UTC)
@KHR FolkMyth I'm interested in its reviews for any platform, but I've already been doing a several year long research and I already have most of them, including NMS. I just want to also get the ones not available online. I occasionally find such and will add them to this list, provided that I exhausted other options of getting them. If it's available online, there's a 99% chance I already have it. Coolak (talk) 17:59, 30 October 2022 (UTC)
Okay, then. KHR FolkMyth (talk) 18:28, 30 October 2022 (UTC)
@Coolak: What year was this game made? My librarian says they won't be able to find these without a sense of when to look. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:25, 7 November 2022 (UTC)
@Compassionate727: Hi, each magazine on my list already had the specific issue with the Worms review, but now I've also added the month/year of each. You probably misunderstood me, there's no need to search through a lot of magazines, in each case the specific issue is known. Thank you. Coolak (talk) 19:49, 7 November 2022 (UTC)
  Facepalm I can't believe I didn't realize those were issue numbers. Forwarded this information to my librarian. Compassionate727 (T·C) 12:49, 8 November 2022 (UTC)
@Compassionate727: Actually... If your librarian is willing to search some magazines whithout a specific issue in mind, I would dare to add several such magazines to the list. Hadn't done so at first because I didn't think it was possible at all. If that's okay with you and your librarian, I would definitely appreciate this additional help. Added several such magazines where I'm unsure about any Worms acticles, for each one I narrowed down the range of issues as much as possible. Coolak (talk) 21:47, 8 November 2022 (UTC)
Alright, here is where I am at. My librarian has submitted three of the requests. One was to the Library of Congress, who I am told will not respond for a while. There are no lenders for the PSExtreme article; I can't help you there. For PC Power and CD-ROM Games, my librarian says that they will need to ask lenders outside the United States and that they "will take extra time to fill" but that she can pursue it "if these articles are important for your research." I'm sure the cost is a salient factor, even though she didn't mention it. Do you want me to ask for those two? Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:55, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
Ping Coolak Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:56, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
I can't be 100% sure that it will turn out very important for my research, but I have reasons to believe it may. These particular two magazines aren't for sale anywhere on eBay, etc, and they're not even in the British libraries that are open for online requests. I can say this is pretty important for me. Then, if I can express my gratitude in a form of some donation or anything, that is also no problem. Coolak (talk) 21:13, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
@Coolak: I have told her to make the requests. And no need for a donation or anything; it will be my college's stuffy millionaire donors paying for these, not me. Compassionate727 (T·C) 22:03, 11 November 2022 (UTC)
@Coolak: One just arrived, please send me an email. Compassionate727 (T·C) 14:32, 15 November 2022 (UTC)
Actually, I already have it.   Sent. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:19, 15 November 2022 (UTC)
  Sent Intelligent Gamer's Fusion. Also, I am told that PC Power is only held by the British Library and they won't lend it, and that no lenders hold the December 1995 issue of CD-ROM Games, so I can't help with either of those. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:02, 21 November 2022 (UTC)
Ping Coolak. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:02, 21 November 2022 (UTC)
Compassionate727 That's unfortunate, but understood. Thank you for the scans provided so far. I'll leave the relevant requests open. Coolak (talk) 22:55, 21 November 2022 (UTC)
  • Internet Archive is usually good for these but not the ones remaining. Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Reference library usually has a good selection from Wikipedia editors too. I would try or Video Game History Foundation or MobyGames forums for the remaining requests. Is the above list of outstanding requests still accurate, @Coolak? czar 01:26, 8 January 2023 (UTC)
    @CzarThe list is still relevant, yes. I have tried all possible resources already and currently am in touch with a few libraries. I'd keep my requests open until solved. I also update the list from time to time. Coolak (talk) 19:21, 8 January 2023 (UTC)

Bartleby Research: Who Are The Descendants Of TroyEdit

Hoping to use this as a jumping off point (not treating it as a reliable source itself, but a guide to help find other sources, and see if I've missed anything) for articles related to the Trojan War, and its influence on medieval literature. Can't find the article anywhere else online, and it's behind a paywall at Bartleby.

Thanks, ‑‑YodinT 21:56, 23 October 2022 (UTC)

Yodin, how about sending the author an email and explaining what you want to use it for? It's only 355 words (of which more than 100 are visible), however, so might not be too helpful. --Usernameunique (talk) 03:57, 19 January 2023 (UTC)

1994 article in The Tuscaloosa NewsEdit

Article discussing the 1941 Alabama Crimson Tide football team and Alabama's claim of a national title for the year. The article is discussed here but the screenshot now has linkrot.

Discussion of "Houlgate" and/or "Football Thesaurus" ranking system.

the article apparently has a quote from Holt Rast that says:

"The poll arrived at the strengths of the teams we had played in the regular season and the fact that we had defeated the Southwestern Conference Champs" Rast said. "We just grinned accepted it and said we will claim being #1."

For Embassy of India School Moscow (a.k.a. Kendriya Vidyalaya Moscow)

I'm trying to see if databases of English language newspapers of India such as Times of India, The Hindu, etc. have articles about the establishment of the Embassy of India School Moscow. The school was established in 1987, so the initial articles should be sometime in the 1980s.

Looking for someone who might be able to access GenealogyBank to help in the verification of citations in Ray Byars and Tommy Byars. Pretty much all of the citations in both articles are apparently to old newspaper articles found on GenealogyBank, which requires registration to access. I understand this is a bit of an unorthodox request, but there are so many of these citations in both articles, listing them individually would end up being quite a list.

Thanks, Marchjuly (talk) 22:38, 29 December 2022 (UTC)

@Marchjuly: it looks like GenealogyBank allows for a 7-day free trial of the "don't forget to cancel before they charge you"-variety. I'd be willing to sign up, download/screenshot, and send over some, but I'm not willing to do so for the ~80 sources across those two articles. Would it be helpful to you to spot check ~20 or so? Firefangledfeathers (talk / contribs) 05:26, 20 January 2023 (UTC)
Thank you so much for the reply Firefangledfeathers and my apologies for not responding sooner. I don't think there's any one particular ciation that needs to be examined, it would just be helpful to know whether the GB site works like in which the entire paper is uploaded or whether people are uploading cutouts of newspaper articles. One of the problems is the the person citing GB stated that she might have paraphrased the titles of some articles so that they can be used as citations for different content. For example, Ray Byars#cite_note-10 and Ray Byars#cite_note-12 as well as Ray Byars#cite_note-33, Ray Byars#cite_note-48 and Ray Byars#cite_note-49 may be examples of paraphrasing in which she's actually citing the same articles twice and thrice respectively in those two cases but is trying to cite different parts of the articles for different content. If she's jsut citing the same articles over and over gain, then some cleanup could probably be done per WP:REFNAME. If this is what she's done at "Ray Byars", then she probaly did the same at Tommy Byars. -- Marchjuly (talk) 03:05, 24 January 2023 (UTC)
Marchjuly, I'll start my free trial sometime in the next few days when I know I have some time available to spend on it. I'll start with the potential duplicates you mentioned.

For Riyadh Japanese School and International Philippine School in Riyadh

I'm trying to find archives of the Arab News (an English language newspaper from Saudi Arabia) about the two schools above.

The Philippine school opened in 1985 and was formerly known as the "Philippine Embassy School in Riyadh" (see CFO-PSO page). The Japanese School was also established in 1985. I am hoping that there are articles about the establishments of those schools written by the Arab News.

Slippery Rock football (Pennsylvania) 1936/1937 wire service story declaring them national championsEdit

The 1936 Slippery Rock Rockets football team were apparently named as national champions via the transitive property by a sports writer in 1936/1937. The column was then carried across the country by a wireservice.

This 'urban legend" is repeated in many tertiary sources, but without an original source that I can find.

The author of the 1936 article is not stated. It was perhaps by Bill Cunningham of Boston:

It has to have been written after Nov 21, 1936. Most likely in Dec 1936 or Jan 1937

I'm searching for the author's name, the original column, or the wire service stories. Thanks!

Pierre Berthelot, Duplessis est encore en vieEdit

The French version of this article says that apparently, while travelling from Quebec City to Schefferville just before his death, Maurice Duplessis stopped on the border of Labrador on the Quebec side and urinated in the general direction of Newfoundland to protest what Quebeckers consider an illegal land grab of (parts of) Labrador by the Newfies (see also Newfoundland and Labrador-Quebec border). A lot of sources listed there are not exactly the ones I would use due to quality concerns, but this one definitely is good. The question I have is whether this source states that this indeed happened or whether it is just an artistic invention of a TV series. The page in this book is unfortunately not given in the article, and I have no idea where this could be. Also, I have doubts about the issue because Conrad Black, who wrote an extensive biography, says that he flew there, so he couldn't have done that mid-air. Pinging Danalieth as the author of the passage. Szmenderowiecki (talk) 13:13, 24 January 2023 (UTC)

Now that I'm done with Louis Crews (see above), I was thinking of writing an article for Alabama A&M football coach George H. Hobson, who preceded him. I feel like I've found close to enough coverage to meet GNG, but currently not enough. I see through google books snippet view that on page 33 (and 15) of History of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, 1913-1990 Hobson appears to be covered. I can't read it, but it looks like it could be the piece to get him over the GNG line and so I would like if someone could show me it so I can determine whether to create an article for him or not.

  • "Anziehend anders". Koneko. No. 108/109/110/111?. Raptor Publishing.

I am looking for a review (or other coverage) of the manga Crossplay Love, known in German as Anziehend anders. As the manga was published in German starting in April 2022, I find it likely that such coverage might be published in Koneko #109 (Mar/Apr 2022) or issues just before/after that. I have previously contacted the publisher to ask whether they have covered the series, but they have not responded after two weeks. For Crossplay Love.

Book by Clive LewisEdit

  • Lewis, Clive. "Mere Christiantity". {{cite journal}}: Cite journal requires |journal= (help)

I would like to expand Wikiquote's page C.S. Lewis. To be specific, I would like to add more to this quote like one of the preceding sentences or sentences coming after: He [the devil] always sends errors into the world in pairs—pairs of opposites. And he always encourages us to spend a lot of time thinking which is the worse. You see why, of course? He relies on your extra dislike of the one error to draw you gradually into the opposite one. But do not let us be fooled. We have to keep our eyes on the goal and go straight through between both errors. We have no other concern than that with either of them. Mere Christianity Book IV, chapter 6, "Two Notes" [6] I would like to request chapter 6. Thanks, WalkingRadiance (talk) 20:06, 1 February 2023 (UTC)
