Although the Harold B. Lee Library does not have a direct subscription to the Wall Street Journal, students can access the journal through both the Factiva and Proquest databases for free. 

Factiva provides access to the last two weeks of Wall Street Journal and can be found by doing the following: 

1. Go to the Business and Economics Library homepage at http://sites.lib.byu.edu/business

2. Type "Factiva" into the Find a Database search bar and click "GO". 

3. Click on the link to the Factiva database.

4. Once inside the Factiva database, click on the news tab in the upper left-hand corner

5. You will now be able to search the last two weeks of the Wall Street Journal by both date and section. 

For access to the Wall Street Journal dating back to 1889, use Proquest.

1. Go to the Business and Economics Library homepage at http://sites.lib.byu.edu/business

2. Type "Wall Street Journal" into the Find a Database search bar and click "Go"

3. Scroll to the bottom of the results page, you will see links to the Wall Street Journal, click on the results that best match your time frame. 

4. You can now search proquest for Wall Street Journal articles by date, topic, company, and other parameters.
