Murphy Library, with the generous support of the College of Business Administration (CBA), has acquired a campuswide subscription to, the web interface of the Wall Street Journal. All UWL faculty, staff and students can now get unlimited access to news, curated newsletters, podcasts and videos, career insights and other content available through 

Having access to the Wall Street Journal via the newspaper’s web interface has been on the library’s wish list of electronic resources for quite some time. Users prefer’s graphical interface where they can browse the newspaper’s web page and click on articles, rather than simply accessing full-text content through a third-party provider’s database. Additionally, a subscription normally comes at a cost of several hundred dollars a year for individual users, and this new subscription through the library has eliminated that cost for the campus community. 

The CBA envisioned access to as well, and when the opportunity became feasible, faculty and staff at Murphy Library worked with T.J. Brooks, Dean of the CBA, to orchestrate the process. The CBA has generously offered to provide full financial support for access to for the next five years.
