Yes, you can access it here: Factiva.


How to use Factiva

See the Factiva guide (ProQuest)

 

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 July 2021, there were over 1300 titles in this list. Most were for smaller newspapers in the US, but a few notable titles (LA Times, MarketLine reports, Le Monde) are included in our access.

To see a current list of the unavailable titles, go to the Search Builder screen in Factiva and follow the steps below:

  1. In the Search Builder screen, click the arrow to expand the Source section.
  2. Uncheck Search Source Name/Alias only.
  3. In the search box in the Source section, type 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. Searches using these publications will return zero results.
