  4. Type Wall Street Journal into the search bar at the top of this page. Then click "Search."
  5. The next page should say "13 records retrieved for the search." Find the record titled "Wall Street Journal Eastern Edition."
  6. Under "Wall Street Journal Eastern Edition" you will see a list of dates of coverage. Click on the link for "ProQuest Newsstand," which has coverage from 01/02/1984 to present.
  7. On the next page, use the search bar to search within the Wall Street Journal or use the "Browse specific issues" section to find a specific article/issue.

Access through Factiva (this option gives you access to more sources from the WSJ including WSJ Online and WSJ sources from outside the United States):

  1. Begin at the library's home page.
  2. At the top of the page, there is a heading that says "Collections." Click on this heading and then select "Databases" underneath "Electronic."

  5. Once in the Factiva database, look below the search box and click the arrow next to "Source."
  6. A smaller search bar will appear. Type Wall Street Journal into the search bar.
  7. This brings up a list of options. Click on the option that says "The Wall Street Journal - All Sources."
  8. Now go up to the search bar beside "Free Text Search" to search for a topic in this journal.
