Wall Street Journal online — free access

image of the wall street journal newspaperCUNY’s Office of Library Services has arranged for all members of the college community to get free access to the digital Wall Street Journal for the year. All you need is an email address ending in “cuny.edu” and you can view the paper on any computer or on your mobile devices using the WSJ mobile apps in less than 5 minutes.

Go to https://partner.wsj.com/enter-redemption-code/CUNYnd5wtb6z and register.  Detailed instructions are provided below.  Faculty and staff will have one year of free access; students should automatically have access until their expected graduation date. If you have a current JSW subscription call 1-800-JOURNAL (1-800-568-7625) to receive a partial credit.  You can also access the subscription sign-up link and instructions on the library website by using the “Wall Street Journal Online” entry on our Databases A-Z list. The CSI library also has a separate subscription that will allow you to access historical WSJ articles from 1984 to the present. You can use the Databases A-Z link and click on the “Wall Street Journal [ProQuest]” title. No registration is needed for this access.

How to get the Wall Street Journal Online:

  • Go to https://partner.wsj.com/enter-redemption-code/CUNYnd5wtb6z.
  • Enter your full name and CSI email address.
  • Then select your status (Student, Staff, or Professor) under “Account Type.”
  • Pick your password. It can be whatever you chose, it doesn’t need to match any other CSI or CUNY accounts. On your regular devices, this password can be automatically saved after you enter it once.
  • You must agree to the policies and agreements, which have been approved by CUNY Legal, but you do NOT need to accept the email updates and offers.
  • Read on your desktop or download the free Wall Street Journal official app through the Apple App Store or Google Play. You will need to enter your account information when you first use the App.

For any questions on access or assistance using this resource in your classes, please contact the CSI library. We will be glad to help in any way we can!
