By Nancy EganWall Street Journal main entrance

The Office of Library Services has negotiated with Dow Jones to allow all members of the CUNY community to access the Wall Street Journal!  Everybody with a (or email domain should now be able to activate a digital subscription. Go to  to activate your “membership” and then go to  the Journal at

In addition to your subscription, a membership includes:

  • WSJ mobile and tablet apps
  • A newsletter of curated content sent to your inbox every month
  • WSJ+: complimentary access to events, offers and experiences (including travel, dining, and theater)
  1. Faculty/Staff Membership Expiration:  All faculty & staff retain WSJ membership for one year after activating. After that, they will have to re-activate their membership.
  1. Student Membership Expiration: When a student activates their membership, they are required to input their graduation date & year. This is their membership expiration date. If they graduate later than expected and lose access, they can re-activate their membership.

Current subscribers can call 1-800-JOURNAL (1-800-568-7625) to switch from their paid subscription to  membership through their campus and they will be refunded the remaining balance of their subscription.

Please contact me with any questions!
