Finding the right sources to improve an article

Ask a Research Question



How this works: If you want to improve an article, but you don't know what sources to use or how or where to find them, ask a question here. Try to be specific about the article or subject you're working on and link to it if possible. Mention what kind of access to libraries you have, as what source you use might depend on what source you can actually get. Please sign your posts with ~~~~
In the right place?
If you are looking to get access to specific sources:
Please post your request on the Resource Exchange.
If you are looking for answers to general questions:
You might be looking for the Reference desk.
Please replace this subject line with a more meaningful description of the research you need.
Does wikipedia have access to articles at this source?
They have articles I would like to read without any cost.

Sources for 90's Australian children game show Challenger
Hi, I'm looking for reliable sources for Challenger (game show). There doesn't actually seem to be any surviving news archives in any repositories I can find, mostly because the archives of the major newspapers aren't digitized up to the 90's. There is an article in The Daily Mail about how Sylvia Jeffreys was a contestant on the show, but (a) I understand Daily Mail is a banned source and (b) the article doesn't go any deeper than to say she was on the show and to describe two of her scenes on her episode, saying nothing about the general format of the show. Failing that, would it be appropriate to reference some of the episodes that have surfaced on YouTube (as references for the format)? --Reader781 (talk) 05:16, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
Reader781, I would suggest starting with this, and then looking at other potential references from that source. Nikkimaria (talk) 23:24, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for that source, Nikkimaria. I shall look further into the Wikipedia Library as well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Reader781 (talkcontribs) 4:06, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
Sources for the religious group Doukhobors
Hi, could someone take a look at the article Doukhobors and potential sources? Specifically, I'd like to find some more sources for modern linguistic Russian in Doukhobor communities in Canada. Thanks! --EpicPupper (talk) 03:34, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
