Newsstand Spotlight: Wall Street Journal

News Body:
One of the more popular titles available through Newsstand is the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ is world renowned for its quality of writing (it has won 39 Pulitzer Prizes since winning its first one in 1947) and through Newsstand we have access to not only the most recent articles but articles going back to 2010. Besides the standard WSJ, our Newsstand subscription also provides us access to the European, Americas, Asia, and issues of the WSJ magazine back to 2013. In all, the Wall Street Journal offers one of the most complete economic and business-related current events views our library can offer.
