Historical Wall Street Journal

The Historical Wall Street Journal, 1989-1989, is now available at Penn. Full text news, editorials, letters to the editor, obituaries, financial quotes, and advertisements are all searchable and available for viewing and printing. Users can search by keyword and Boolean operators as well as employ more advanced searching techniques. The results list generated by a search includes detailed bibliographic information for the articles retrieved including article title, publication, issue date, author, page, etc. Researchers can view isolated article images, or, for context, can click on “page map” to see the whole page on which the article appeared. Articles can also be emailed in pdf format.

Print holdings for WSJ are located in Lippincott Library in paper (last two weeks) and on microfilm.

And just to review! You can search WSJ in Factiva (1979-present, though some of those old years are just abstracts, the site is not clear when absolute full coverage begins) or ABI Inform (full coverage of the Eastern edition begins in 1984).
