Yes, you can access it here: Factiva.


Limitations: Please note that our academic account does not give us access to all Factiva's features or sources. Specifically, individual academic users cannot create accounts in Factiva. Because of this, we cannot use saved searches, alerts, or any other feature that requires an individual account.

In addition, there is some content that due to licensing limitations is not available to academic users of Factiva. As of June 2017 there were just over 1000 titles in this list. Most were for smaller newspapers in the US, but a few notable titles (LA Times, MarketLine reports, Le Monde) were included in the list as well.

In you are concerned about coverage, you can get an up-to-date list of the unavailable titles by performing the following search in the Search Builder screen in Factiva:

  1. In the Search Builder screen, click on the arrow to expand the Source section.
  2. Uncheck only the box that says: "Search Source Name/Alias only"
  3. In the search box in the Source section, input (without quotes): "rst=tbas" and click the blue arrow search button next to the Source search field.
The returned list of publications are all titles that are blocked for academic accounts. Any searches against these publications will return zero results.
