Re: help! Merciful (but polite) cries for help!!!!
Some authors will send you copies of their papers, others will not.
But it doesn't hurt to try, especially if you can't get a particular paper
from this next source, namely:
Another possibility is getting copies through the Interlibrary Loan
Office of your university library. Some will charge, while others will
provide free copies if the papers aren't too long. Again, check into it,
and then you will have a better idea what sources work best for you.
And once you find that certain scientists are working in the area you
are interested in, check out their websites by going to the website of their
museum or university department. Most of these will have a search function,
you can type in their name, and some web sites even give lists of
scientist's published papers.

Sirs and Madams:
I do apologize for this message, but, it must be asked.
I have searched, scowered, the Internet, looking for places from which
might obtain paleontological papers pertinent to the paper I must write for
scholarship (the Intel Science Talent Search), all futilly. I have gone to
website of the AMNH and have seen what they have, but they only have one
relevent to the subject of the paper I intend to write. So, I will ask in
politeness, where can I obtain papers? The university and our excuse for
libraries do not contain papers, so I need to obtain them from other
Also, I was curious, might I just ask the people who wrote the papers to
provide me with copies? Thank you for your time, and I do apologize for
Thank you again,
