Wall Street Journal: Current/Historical

Furman does not currently have an institutional subscription to the browsable web version of the Wall Street Journal. However, Factiva lets you browse lists of articles from the most recent two weeks of issues. To do so, go to Factiva and click the HOME button at the top. Then scroll down to the "Newsstand US" section. From there, you can choose the date and section you want to browse, then you'll see a list of the articles.

You can also use the basic SEARCH functionality of Factiva to search and access the full text of the Wall Street Journal back to 1995 and abstracts of articles back to 1979. To do so , go to Factiva and stay on the SEARCH screen. Under the search box, you'll see a SOURCE field. Click that triangle and type "Wall Street" into the box. Select the link that says "Wall Street Journal - All Sources." Note that it will add the WSJ in a gold button above. Also note that it may keep the "All Publications" box. If it does, you need to click the triangle and click REMOVE, so the only gold button you see next to SOURCE is the WSJ. Then enter your terms into the big search box. You may need to change the dates you're searching, because it defaults to the last three months. 


Our Wall Street Journal Historical database offers scanned images of the Journal from 1899-2004. This allows you to see the pages as they were originally printed, including ads. Furman subscribes to over a dozen other papers through the Proquest Historical Newspaper Series as well.
