Financial Times Access: Free!

Financial Times Logo

Hi all! We have recently been informed of free access to a important resource: The Financial Times! This has been funded by the library and the Business School, and will be very useful for you to access material for your assignments and general interest. Because of this free access, we will be sharing a lot more Financial Times articles on our Social Media feeds, so make sure you know how to access them! I have included some instructions below from Harry Gibbs, who is a faculty librarian:
