Wall Street Journal (WSJ)

About this Guide

wall street journal sample front page

  • Do you have an assignment where you are asked to find an article specifically from the Wall Street Journal?
  • Did you come across a reference to a WSJ article in another article or book?
  • Are you looking for an authoritative source of business and financial news? 

This guide will show you how to find those articles in FIT Library databases. 
Note that we do not subscribe directly to so you will not find all the features of that site using our databases. 

Wall Street Journal Through ProQuest

FIT Library subscribes to Wall Street Journal content through ProQuest, a company that provides similar access to other newspapers. It's not the same as searching the website, but it is updated daily and has virtually all articles from the print newspaper Eastern Edition and some from WSJ Online; it does not contain most images (images, charts. illustrations) unfortunately.


  • Advanced search lets you use fields like company name or NAICS code to look for articles that focus on a specific business or industry rather than just mentioning it.
  • Did you know?  We also subscribe to the New York Times Historical and WWD Archive through ProQuest, so you can easily search all three papers at the same time. You can even add in other databases from ProQuest such as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, Women's Magazine Archive, and more. Useful sections to browse

Remember that if you do not have a subscription to, these sections are browseable but you cannot get free access to the articles through these links

Other options

If you want to look for the version of an article as it appeared in the print newspaper or on complete with photos, illustrations, charts  et al., note that 

  • does not provide a specific number of articles free to any user; it seems to be a variable number so you can try to search the site to see if you can get access.  Read more about that concept here
  • Subscribers may be able to post or forward free links to a certain number of articles. If your professor wants you to read a specific article, you can ask if they have their own subscription and can share a link with the class.
  • It's possible that a search of Google or social media might  find you a specific free access link that someone was able to share.
