Breaking News!

Beginning in July 2020, the Emory Libraries are offering a NEW Wall Street Journal digital access program!

With our new program, Emory students, faculty, and staff will have continuous access to the digital version of Wall Street Journal  and its online content, including the WSJ app. The archive goes back 4 years. For more archival research, go to Factiva which has 30 years of the WSJ, Wall Street Journal Historical, and Proquest WSJ. You also have access to the podcasts.


All current Emory students, faculty and staff (with an address) have online access to the Wall Street Journal online, as well as the app.  You must first set up a Wall Street Journal online account.Unfortunately, our license restricts usage to those with an address.

Step 1:  Go to

Step 2:  Sign in to the Emory’s Single Sign-On web page with your Emory University email and password

Step 3:  The first time you sign on you will be taken to a separate Wall Street Journal (WSJ) sign-in web page.

a. Account Type—select your status: Student, Staff, or Professor

b. Email Address—It is suggested you use a different email address than your Emory one.

c. Password—You have to enter a password for the Wall Street Journal account you are setting up.
