Students, faculty, and staff of Brigham Young University-Idaho now have access to two valuable online resources to assist with academic research and other needs. The Wall Street Journal Online and Get Abstract are available at no cost to all BYU-Idaho students and employees.
"Having free access to two useful websites like these is a great benefit to both students and employees. We'd like to see everyone at the university take advantage of this resource," said Robyn Bergstrom, former dean of the College of Business and Communication.
Bergstrom worked with Mike Thueson and Jessica Sorenson of the university's Purchasing Office to arrange BYU-Idaho's free usage of both sites.
The Wall Street Journal Online provides full access to the newspaper in digital form, as well as archives dating back to 1889. A premium version of the Wall Street Journal app for iOS and Android devices is also available for free download with instructions on how to sign up.
Get Abstract is a database that offers five-page summaries of business-related books in a magazine format with PDF instructions on how to sign up. Most abstracts are designed to be read in less than 10 minutes.
