The best option is to use the database "ProQuest Newspapers." You can get to that database by clicking on the orange "Databases" button in the white "FIND" band on the main library webpage. When the databases page loads, you can either click on "P" in the "Databases by Title" section and locate "ProQuest Newstands", or you can click on "Newspapers" in the "Databases by Subject" section, then browsing to "ProQuest Newspapers."

In the "ProQuest Newspapers" database click on "Publications" tab, then enter "Wall Street Journal." The "Wall Street Journal  Eastern edition" is the issue produced in the United States. Other global editions and languages are available. Look for the listing of years, then click the [+] to expand the list. The current issue is the topmost option.

In addition, this link will take you directly to that newspaper listing in the UW Libraries catalog. Click on the blue "View Full Text" button, then on the "ProQuest Newspapers" button to access the same listing described in the above paragraph.

Finally, here is the link to the newspaper's own website. Be aware that the company limits the number of articles that a user reads for "free." Use of this website is most useful when used in conjunction with the ProQuest newspaper database, especially to view photographs and charts that are not available through the database.
