Newsstand Spotlight: Financial Times

News Body:
This week's Newsstand Spotlight is the British newspaper The Financial Times. While the Wall Street Journal is the more famous financial and business newspaper of the two, Financial Times actually has a higher readership and circulation number and is, in fact, the most read financial newspaper in the world. Published since 1888, the Financial Times is considered one of the leading sources for news on the European Union and European financial markets. Through ProQuest Newsstand, we have access to full-text articles going back to 1996.

Title:
Newsstand Spotlight: Globe and Mail

News Body:
The Globe and Mail is Canada's largest national newspaper. Based in Toronto, it is sometimes criticized for focusing too much on Toronto issues, though there have always been efforts to move beyond that stereotype. The primary section of emphasis for The Globe and Mail is the Report on Business, which is used in Canada much like the Wall Street Journal is in the US. Our ProQuest Newsstand subscription allows students to view full-text of all articles beginning in 1977.

Title:
Newsstand Spotlight: Boston Globe

News Body:
This week the Library's Newsstand Spotlight post is highlighting the Boston Globe. Begun in 1872, the Boston Globe has won 23 Pulitzer Prizes, all since 1966. The library's ProQuest Newsstand subscription allows IU students to read 18 of the award-winning articles (full-text articles for the Globe begin in 1980). While the Globe is more focused on local stories than national or international, it is still one of the top papers in the country and highly useful for students searching out current event articles.
