Q. How do I access the Wall Street Journal from home?


The San José Public Library provides free online access to the Wall Street Journal from any device with an internet connection. Access is provided for 72 hours with an unlimited number of 72-hour renewals.

Please do not share the sign-on credentials with any other person whatsoever. Any violation of this clause will result in Dow Jones terminating access for San José Public Library.

Steps for offsite "home" access:

  1. Click on this link to access the Wall Street Journal. 
  2. Sign in with your library card number (the number on the back of your card) and PIN
  3. Create an account with the Wall Street Journal or sign in with an existing Wall Street Journal account.
  4. After 72 hours have passed, you will need to click the link again to get another 72 hours of access. Enter your library card number and PIN. Then select "SIGN IN" and enter the same e-mail address and password you set up originally.
  5. When signing back in with your e-mail address and password, you may be prompted to verify your e-mail address. You can select "Continue to WSJ" to avoid e-mail verification.
