University of Wyoming Libraries and The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) have partnered to provide school-sponsored WSJ memberships to all UW students, faculty and staff.
Through the partnership, UW community members have full digital access to news and content via WSJ.com and the WSJ app. Additionally, UW community members receive access to curated newsletters, podcasts and exclusive benefits with WSJ+, a benefits program that gives members access to virtual events and offers, such as invites to talks and a free e-book each month.
UW students, faculty and staff can activate their memberships by visiting https://WSJ.com/UWYO. Those who currently pay for an existing WSJ membership can call 1-800-JOURNAL and mention they are switching to their school-sponsored membership. WSJ will issue partial refunds.
“For years, UW Libraries has subscribed to The Wall Street Journal for our patrons. However, the physical copy of the paper would usually arrive two to three days after it published and, in the winter, sometimes longer,” says David Kruger, agriculture and business librarian. “Moving to digital access offers immediate, real-time access for our students and faculty, allowing for content to be more relevant in instruction and learning. And beyond that, there’s actually more WSJ content to access than ever before.”
Although UW students have access to the full suite of WSJ products, they can find student-centric content in several places. The WSJ Student Hub provides a place for students to find curated content focused on job preparation, finance tips, career insights and expert advice. The student homepage, https://education.wsj.com/students, shares links to new opportunities from WSJ, including opportunities to have student work published on WSJ.com, relevant podcasts and newsletters.
Additionally, students with activated memberships qualify for the WSJ Grad Pack, which offers a discounted graduate rate that continues two years after graduation. Students will receive an automated email upon graduation from WSJ inviting them to subscribe at those exclusive rates.
UW faculty members can use WSJ Context, a new tool for instructors to easily create and share reading lists with their students. Faculty members interested in incorporating WSJ content into their instruction should visit https://education.wsj.com/professors/.
