Finding Articles from the Wall Street Journal
Step #1 - Go to www.library.cornell.edu
Step #2 - Click on "E-Journal Titles"
Step #3 - Search for the journal (in this case, the Wall Street Journal)
If we go to the e-Journal titles tab and type in the name of the journal, we will get a list of all of the databases that allow online access to the journal, including the years for which the journal is available.
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".
Scroll down until you see "The Wall Street journal. Eastern Edition"
Step #4 Select the database to view the journal in (in this case Factiva or ABI/INFORM)
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.
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.
