We have been informed that our Factiva alumni subscription agreement with Dow Jones will terminate on October 31, 2013. Dow Jones is terminating alumni agreements at all schools, not just Stanford. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to find an alternative database. If you have any you'd like us to consider, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
