We have a few different ways of accessing the Wall Street Journal digitally.

If you are affiliated with the Business School you can sign up for a free subscription here by searching for Washington University in St. Louis under the field that says "See if your university offers WSJ Memberships": https://education.wsj.com/search-students/

All other users can access it via Factiva, a database that provides access to the full text of the Wall Street Journal from 1979 to the present, as well as thousands of popular business and general publications. It only allows for six concurrent users, so please log out when finished. Factiva doesn't allow you to casually browse articles the you can in the Wall Street Journal online, but if you have an article title and just need the full text it's really useful, or if you are trying to find multiple articles on a subject in a given time period using a keyword search. You can find more search tips here.

For older articles, you can check out the historical database of the Wall Street Journal (1923-2002).

We offer access to other newspapers as well, and you can get an overview in this helpful guide.
