The Financial Times at your fingertips

By Brittney Bomnin
UM students, faculty, and staff can stay in-the-know with access to a number of digital publications, including a leading global business publication.

University of Miami students, faculty, and staff now have access to The Financial Times online thanks to a collaboration between the UM Libraries and the Miami Business School. This new subscription, which allows unlimited access to FT.com articles and tools, follows the license acquisition of The New York Times Digital Edition and the Wall Street Journal Online in 2018. 

Get access

To get started, new FT users must register using their University of Miami email address. Registered users may then log in on any device at FT.com. Find a list of all available publications on the Libraries’ site or check out this research guide to learn more.

By the numbers

With the ability to login via desktop, mobile, or tablet, it’s simple to get started and keep your finger on the global pulse. To date there are more than 2,100 active subscribers to NYT and over 3,000 active subscribers to WSJ within the University community. Just this past August, there were 400 and 300 new subscribers to the NYT and WSJ, respectively. Combined total page views since acquiring both subscriptions are over half a million. 

What's next?

The Libraries continues to review and license news sources that follow the highest standards of independent journalism. Access trial demonstrations of fee-based subscription services under consideration, including ProQuest’s Academic Video Online and the InfoBase’s Films on Demand, and send any feedback to d.roose@miami.edu. Additionally, the Libraries has added TESOL Encyclopedia and Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Communication to their offerings. 

If you have questions regarding access to any online source, just ask a librarian. Learn more at library.miami.edu.
