  • From ProQuest:“About The Wall Street JournalComprehensive coverage back to 1984 is available from the world's leading financial newspaper through the ProQuest database. The first issue of The Wall Street Journal was four pages long and sold for two cents. Today, the paper is considered the preeminent publication for business news and information on financial markets worldwide.You get complete Wall Street Journal articles through our database. They are the preferred way to access the publication's information in thousands of college, university, public, and school libraries worldwide.The ProQuest database meets the needs of many different research environments because of the comprehensive, high-quality indexing. It covers not only complete bibliographic information but also subjects, companies, people, products, and geographic areas. Our highly trained indexers apply the subject terms from a controlled vocabulary of about 8,500 natural-language words and phrases.Each issue of every newspaper is indexed thoroughly, so researchers can easily access not only top news stories but also detailed information on the arts, sports, business, and popular culture. Even such items as editorials, editorial cartoons, and letters to the editor from well-known people are indexed.For each article cited in the database, an abstract of up to 75 words helps the researcher know if the complete text will meet his or her needs.”
