Type in Wall Street Journal to see where it is available.  There are a few editions of the Wall Street Journal.  You will most likely want the "Eastern Edition".

Step #5 - Click on either Factiva or ABI/Inform. I personally recommend ABI/Inform.  It's an easier interface to navigate. 

 

Step #6 - Search 

You can search some key words based on the assignment. For example, "branding" 

You can limit the search by year if you want more recent articles. You can also narrow the results to full text only. 

In ABI/INFORM, they will be sorted by relevance. If you'd like to change this, use the drop down menu on the left hand side. 

After searching in ABI/Inform, the limiters for "Full Text" and sorting by "Relevance" can be found to the left on the page. 

 

Step #7 - Scroll through until you find an article you are interested in. 

 

Step #8 - To read, click on Full Text 

That's all there is to it!  Please be aware that there are multiple ways to search for and access these articles.  You can go directly to ABI/INFORM or Factiva and search use "Wall Street Journal" as a search term as well.
