Wall Street Journal Access

Rod Library does not subscribe to the version of the Wall Street Journal at http://www.wsj.com. Some articles and important features at this address are free, though, such as the Markets Data Center, listed under the Markets Data & Tools tab. Rod Library DOES subscribe to Wall Street Journal articles via ProQuest ABI/INFORM Global; the full text of Journal articles from January 2, 1984 to the present are available online in this way. Use this address to go to an ABI/INFORM link to a list of Wall Street Journal issues that can be browsed and searched. Wall Street Journal articles also may show up in searches of ABI/INFORM Global. Rod Library also subscribes to a print edition of the Journal, available at the MultiService Desk. Older issues are on microfilm back to 1958. Update on 2/7/08: News Corp. completed acquisition of Dow Jones in December. The News Corp. chair said at a recent conference that the free portion of the WSJ will be greatly expanded but there will continue to be content available only to subscribers. See this 1/25/08 article from the WSJ for more details.
