Specific sources[edit]

An editor using this IP address recently moved some quotes in Carl Sagan from the Unsourced section into specific book sections, which is greatly appreciated. Might I ask a favor — that this editor also add page numbers and book editions while they have the evidence of these sources handy? One of the sorely needed tasks for many Wikiquote articles is identification of specific sources, so that readers may find (and editors may verify) these quotes in the relevant books. (We need the edition information, easily provided by an ISBN in most cases, so extrapolations between different editions can be made.) Thanks for any assistance that can be provided. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 07:32, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
