Business newspapers at the Vanier Library

I would like to suggest that the Vanier library consider purchasing the National  Post newspaper (daily) publication. It is published by Post media which also prints the Gazette which you already receive in the Vanier library entrance periodical area. It could be added to the current Gazette subscription at nominal cost. The National Post includes the Financial Post section which contains valuable financial information that the Globe and Mail does not.

Thank you for your suggestion.  Unfortunately, adding the National Post to our current newspaper subscriptions at the Vanier Library would cost almost $700 per year.  Libraries do not benefit from the same special pricing that individuals do.  Since there are no business courses offered at the Loyola Campus, it is unlikely that we would start up a new subscription to this newspaper.  That said, for students that are interested in the National Post and the Financial Post at Loyola, there are other options available to you.

You can visit the freely-available Financial Post website, for stock, currency and basic commodities data.  For more detailed financial data, you can consult FP Advisor, a statistical database that the Concordia Libraries subscribe to.  Concordia users can access this free of charge.   Furthermore, the fulltext of articles from The National Post are available via Factiva and Canadian Newsstand.

You may also want to sign up with the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BANQ) website.  As a resident of the province of Québec, you will have free access to databases, e-books and e-journals, including the Press Display database.  There, you will have access to the data as it appears in the National Post and Globe and Mail newspapers.

Many thanks to our Finance Librarian, Rajiv Johal, for sorting all this out for me!  🙂
