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.

Royal Geographical Society / Wiley digital archivesEdit

A general question: Does the wikipedia library provide access to any archives of this sort? Can the RGS collection be browsed on some site even if its files are paywalls?

To my knowledge, this isn't included in TWL (though I am unfamiliar with the source, so I may be wrong). But it looks like my own institution does give me some degree of access to these RGS archives, so @Danny lost: if you have a specific request, I can see if I can get it for you.

2013 Irish Examiner articleEdit

Hello. I'm looking for this 2013 Irish Examiner article for my draft on Colin Barrett. I checked Gale with The Wikipeida Library but it doesn't have this article despite having full-text coverage for 2013:

For Anarkali

Thanks, Bookku, 'Encyclopedias = expanding information & knowledge' (talk) 12:13, 25 July 2022 (UTC)

I think, page 21 is within the "Preface", but I'm not sure. "Bibliographical references" are on pages 77-78. But I myself can't get this for you. – Doc TaxonTalk 15:24, 25. Jul 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for inputs. Actually wish to find out 'a particular sentence' is being referred by Chaudhry from which particular book and page of reasonably large historian Ram Nath#Works, that's why I am looking for Chaudhry's bibliography.
At page 21 historian Nazir Chaudhry is referring to another historian Ram Nath's sentence ".. absolutely improbable that the grand Mughal emperor would address his married wife as yar .." (as much I could see in google book snippet google books does not give preview for this book), some other media articles too refer to this sentence, but it is unclear from which book and page number of Ram Nath's sentence is cited.
Nazir Chaudhry too is reasonably being referred by other authors so I will prefer to go through his presentation.

Tale type index for Armenian folktales (based on the ATU system)Edit

  • Гуллакян, Сюзанна Арменовна [Syuzana Armenovna Gullakian]. Указатель сюжетов армянских волшебных и новеллистических сказок : (Учеб.-вспом. пособие) / С. А. Гуллакян; М-во нар. образования АрмССР, Респ. учеб.-метод. каб. - Ереван : РУМК Миннаробразования АрмССР, 1990. - 48 с.; 20 см.

The work translates roughly to "Index of Types of Armenian Folktales". The work is said to contain 48 pages, but I only need the pages in regards to types ATU 425-449 (section about the Animal as Bridegroom tales), ATU 505-508 (section about the Grateful dead (folklore)) and ATU 707 (about The Three Golden Children (folklore)).

I believe the selected sections will serve to improve articles about Armenian fairy tales, including Habrmani and The Golden-Headed Fish.

Hebrew language resourceEdit

From looking at WorldCat, it looks like this may be a difficult request to fulfill, as it shows no libraries in the US that may have it. This are the details of the book:

Business Week 1984Edit

Hello! I'm working on the article Atari 8-bit family. Who knows where to find online archives of Business Week magazine? From Business Week of May 21, 1984, there is allegedly this quotation: "Atari expect the new Lucasfilm software to stimulate sales of future games machines while tapping an existing market of 4 million owners of Atari's home computer and 5200 games machines". That's all the information I have. I have searched ProQuest and EBSCO on WP:LIBRARY but maybe I did it wrong. Thank you so much. — Smuckola(talk) 03:50, 7 August 2022 (UTC)

@Smuckola, I have access to this one; email me and I'll send you the PDF. Cheers, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 05:10, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
@Extraordinary Writ: Done. Thanks! And if anyone can let me know if there's an online source for Business Week, that'd be great! — Smuckola(talk) 08:52, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
@Smuckola:   Sent. The Internet Archive has coverage through 1961, but I'm not aware of an easy way to access anything after that, unfortunately: as far as I can tell, it's only available through this special EBSCO database, which the Wikipedia Library doesn't subscribe to. If you need any more BusinessWeek articles, feel free to leave a message here and one of us with access to the EBSCO database would be happy to send it to you. Extraordinary Writ (talk) 16:32, 7 August 2022 (UTC)
@Extraordinary Writ: Thanks. I googled and I can't find how to fill in the citation, like volume or issue, and I'm not sure whether ISSN is necessary because I rarely see it. This is a good magazine article to spread around citations into several Wikipedia articles. {{cite magazine | magazine=[[Bloomberg Businessweek|Businessweek]] | date=May 21, 1984 | title=Atari refuses to let the video game fad die | page=46 | volume= | issue= | issn= | publisher=[[McGraw Hill Education]]}} — Smuckola(talk) 02:38, 8 August 2022 (UTC)
Looks good, Smuckola. The database tells me that this is issue no. 2843; there doesn't appear to be a volume number, so you can just leave that parameter blank. Including the ISSN (0007-7135) probably isn't a bad idea, although it's not required. You can also add via=[[EBSCOhost]] if you want to make clear where the article came from. Cheers, Extraordinary Writ (talk) 03:13, 8 August 2022 (UTC)
@Extraordinary Writ: You are truly a Writ among writs. Out of the ordinary, and possibly even mildly outrageous. Please let me know if I can assist you with anything. The source has been cited, long live Jambi. I sure wish WP:LIBRARY's GUI wasn't only a blatant giant zoo, though I know it is by benevolent necessity. I wish it at least had a single search box, even if I had to wait 30 minutes for results lol. I basically stick to trade magazines and newspapers, so I often must do countless redundant searches. The bare minimum is EBSCO, ProQuest,, Google Books, and sometimes Newspaper Archive. It's so overwhelming and I don't know how to determine the names of individual publications I can and can't search! I don't know what's included, to even answer the question of whether or not I've even searched BusinessWeek among all that lol. There are a ton of stupid meta-search checkboxes ahead of EBSCO and ProQuest alone and I can't imagine how it would be possible to ever understand what I'm even looking at or opting into before I've even input a keyword. Then it gives me a beautiful search result and soon times out and barfs it all on the floor so I can start it all over again. Am I baying into the wind along with other very smart very normal users or am I just a loser, baby? — Smuckola(talk) 07:38, 8 August 2022 (UTC)
Smuckola, the WP:LIBRARY folks actually have been working on one search engine to rule them all—there's now a search bar at the top of that searches EBSCO, Gale, JSTOR, and a whole bunch of other databases. Unfortunately it doesn't yet include ProQuest,, or Newspaper Archive, but at least it's better than nothing. I can certainly sympathize about how difficult it can be to find where (if anywhere) a publication is available. One trick on ProQuest is to click the "publications" tab, which lets you search by the name of the publication (for instance, searching "Los Angeles Times" shows you how to access the paper, while searching "BusinessWeek" brings up...nothing). I think EBSCO has a similar feature, although I'm not too familiar with it. And, of course, if there's anything you can't find, you're always welcome to pay us a visit here and someone will probably be able to put you on the right track.

German-language Catalogue of Romanian folktales by Adolf SchullerusEdit

  • Schullerus, Adolf. Verzeichnis der rumänischen Märchen und Märchenvarianten. Folklore Fellows Communications, 1928. 99 pp.

For Romanian folklore and related articles about Romanian fairy tales.

The work is a preliminary catalogue of Romanian folktales according to the then recent revision of the international Aarne-Thompson-Uther Index (known at the time - 1928 - as AaTh). From this book, I'm requesting the section about tale type 407, "The Girl as Flower" (for The Bay-Tree Maiden); types 425-449, section about the Tierbräutigam (for Trandafiru and The Enchanted Pig), and type 707, "The Three Golden Children" (for The Boys with the Golden Stars and A String of Pearls Twined with Golden Flowers).

Adolf Schullerus [ro]'s book was translated into Romanian in 1966, and, according to some digging up, has not been updated since then, which means the original German-language version (1928) seems to be the most complete catalogue of Romanian tales.

Computer Trade WeeklyEdit

Computer Trade Weekly was a British weekly trade newspaper that covered computers and video games, spanning from 1984 to 1998. Although it was a respectable source at the time, it is notoriously difficult to find archives of on the Internet. Out of all the hundreds of issues they had ever released, I managed to find and download exactly one, although granted I might have been able to uncover a second issue had I decided to grind the search engines of Google and the Internet Archive.

For Amiga 600, I am looking for an article about the CeBIT 1992 show that mentions the Amiga 600 as one of the products being released there. This newspaper was reportedly the outlet that broke the Amiga 600 story. There is very little I know about the article. I do not know what issue the article appeared in, let alone the page numbers. Based on the issue I downloaded, it might have been #378. All I know is that it was reportedly published on March 16, 1992. I am betting that the only way I could obtain a copy of the article is from someone who has a physical copy of the issue, so if you have one, please send it. Thanks, FreeMediaKid$ 06:17, 26 August 2022 (UTC)

Okay, I searched the internet for more details about the newspaper, and searching "CTW" on, I found out its ISSN: 1355-6142. I hope this helps you as it will help me. FreeMediaKid$ 03:48, 2 September 2022 (UTC)

Sources about the middle name of Michael Wagner (TV script writer and producer)Edit

  1. Phillips, Mark; Garcia, Frank (1996). Science fiction television series : episode guides, histories, and casts and credits for 62 prime time shows, 1959 through 1989. Jefferson, N.C.: McFarland. p. 271. ISBN 9780786428359.
  2. Anything else about Michael Wagner, a TV script writer and producer active between 1975 and 1992

Michael Wagner was a US TV script writer and producer, but what is his middle initial? We have an article at Michael I. Wagner, created at that location in 2009, but online sourcing is sketchy and possibly citogenetic, for such a pre-internet personality.

The requested book (and the "page 271" indication) is taken from Probe (1988 TV series). GBooks does not have a preview. I just need a quote of the sentence that mentions Michael Wagner, no need to scan the whole page (and maybe it’s not even on that page, but it should be around there).

Alternatively, if you can find anything else reliable that includes the initial (or mildly-reliable but published before 2009), that is good enough for me.

  • I received Doc Taxon’s email (thanks!). Unfortunately the book chapter is useless (the name given there is "Michael Wagner" with no middle initial or name).
I appreciate the extra mile of searching through genealogy websites ( I suppose?) that at least yielded that the middle name is likely "Bill". Your theory that the "I" is actually "Michael Wagner, first of the name" is fairly plausible.
I will still leave the request open, because that’s not enough. Ancestry sites also contain lots of junk (such as this entry for "Michael I Wagner", edited in 2012 hence likely lifted off Wikipedia). TigraanClick here for my talk page ("private" contact) 13:16, 22 September 2022 (UTC)

Need copy of a book's pageEdit

I need a copy of the following book's page no. 167 to crosscheck a Koli-related claim added by a sockpuppet:

TL;DR version:
A Koli-related claim about a politician (Natvarsinh Solanki) was first added by a sockpuppet and was recently reinstated by an anon with the same source, although this time the anon provided a relevant quotation as well. The sock master has a history of misrepresenting sources as well as misquoting them. I know this because I have crosschecked some of the quotations provided by them in the past. But this time I don't have access to the source in question, although the quotation provided by the anon isn't appearing in the Google Books' snippet view. BTW, I also suspect the provided quote because I have access to multiple scholarly books which mention that the subject was a Rajput, rather than a Koli, e.g. see Talk:Natvarsinh_Solanki#Caste. Thanks. - NitinMlk (talk) 21:05, 20 September 2022 (UTC)

The closest I see matching is from page 180 from 2004 book. I also checked words in the 1995 book to see if there were any results for Narendrasinh Mahida and Natwarsinh Solanki - no results in the book at all. Therefore, I think this quote isnt there at all with Lobo's book. It could be replaced by the 2004 book I linked above if you find it useful, but I'm not sure if it's reliable. MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 02:13, 21 September 2022 (UTC)
The 2004 book is reliable. In fact, it is the first of the two sources cited by me at Talk:Natvarsinh Solanki#Caste. But both of those sources mention the subject's caste as Rajput, whereas Lobo's book mentions him as Koli, as per the edits of the sock puppet and the IP user. BTW, I also feel that they are misrepresenting Lobo's source. But I wanted confirmation before reverting their edit so that it won't look as if I am assuming bad faith against the sock puppet. - NitinMlk (talk) 21:53, 21 September 2022 (UTC)

Locus magazine back issuesEdit

Locus magazine, issues 409, 421, 432, 434, and 435, from the mid-1990s. Looking for reviews of The Farseer Trilogy, which are listed in each of these. Have not been digitized as far as I'm aware; posting in the hope that someone has hard copies they would be willing to photograph. Each review should be a page or two at most. Looking for all five, but any would be appreciated.

For Abd al-Qadir Maraghi

Thanks, Aza24 (talk) 01:31, 24 September 2022 (UTC)

@Aza24: it's just two paragraphs so I'll paste it below:

ʿAbd al-Qādir al-Marāghī b. Ghaybī (d. 838/1435) was the most important Persian writer on music, also a composer, lutenist, poet, painter, and calligrapher. A boon companion of the Jalāʾirid Sulṭān Ḥusayn, in 781/1379 he composed for him a new nawbah, or suite, for each night of Ramaḍān. He became the chief minstrel of the latter’s successor, Sulṭān Aḥmad (r. 784–813/1382–1410). He was among the artists and scholars taken to Samarqand following Tīmūr’s capture of Baghdad in 795/1393, and by 1399 he was one of the boon companions of Tīmūr’s son Mīrānshāh in Tabrīz. When Mīrānshāh’s bad conduct endangered the lives of his companions, ʿAbd al-Qādir returned to his former patron Sulṭān Aḥmad in Baghdad, and was again taken to Samarqand after Tīmūr recaptured Baghdad in 803/1401.
His brilliant career reached its apogee in Herat at the court of Tīmūr’s son Shāh Rukh, where he wrote his major treatise, Jāmiʿ al-alḥān (holograph dated 818/1415, ed. Taqī Bīnish, Tehran 1366sh/1987) and its abridgment, Maqāṣid al-alḥān (holograph 821/1418, ed. Taqī Bīnish, Tehran 1345sh/1966). He also produced a commentary on the Kitāb al-Adwār of Ṣafī al-Dīn al-Urmawī (ed. Taqī Bīnish, Tehran 1370sh/1991). Forty-three musical instruments of West, Central, and East Asia are briefly described in the three treatises.
He died in Herat.

I would normally be able to access this via the Wikipedia Library, but Oxford sources are currently unavailable (see this thread). I have found lots of contemporary news articles about Maccomo via, but I'm hoping Jeffrey Green will be able to cut through the more questionable reporting!
