Eckerd Library recently switched the way we access the Wall Street Journal.  Now, all faculty, students, and staff can access the Wall Street Journal website directly by setting up their access via the Eckerd Library subscription.  A one time registration is all you need to access the WSJ from your laptop, tablet, or phone from anywhere in the world.

Use the instructions below to set up your access.  Feel free to Ask a Librarian if you run into any issues.



The Wall Street Journal online provides four years of coverage on a rolling basis (current year minus 4 years).  This includes articles from print and online, as well as blogs and video content. 


The library also provides access to the Wall Street Journal from 2010 to current via ProQuest Central.



First time users must setup an account to access the Wall Street Journal website from any device.   After registering, you can access the Wall Street Journal via the web or the WSJ Times app using the email and password you used to register.


In order to use the WSJ Online from your laptop, tablet, or phone, you need to setup a WSJ account.  If you have an existing account, you can link it to the Library’s WSJ subscription. Students are allowed access through graduation, while faculty and staff access must be renewed each year.  Use the following instructions to setup your account.

1) Go to or click the link to the Wall Street Journal Online in the Databases tab on the Library website.

2) Proceed with the setup instructions to start your access. You will need to indicate your affiliation with the college as follows:

  • Students should select their graduation month and year.  
  • Faculty and staff accounts need to be renewed each year.  


Upon submitting the form, you will receive a confirmation page, and get redirected to the WSJ website.


3) Use this same account to login to the WSJ website via all your other devices.  This includes logging in via a WSJ Mobile app specific to your device.




You can search the WSJ online using the menu bar search at the top which searches for news, quotes, companies, and videos.  Company searches provide recent news, as well as stock activity, ratings, financials, and a brief company profile.

The News Archive located at the bottom of the page can search for articles from a specific day in the last four years.
