You can find articles from the Financial Times through the database LexisNexis Academic. You will need to click on Advanced Options, then start typing Financial Times in the Source field (highlighted in yellow in the screenshot). Note that there is a 30-day embargo, meaning that articles printed in the past month will not be available.

You can build an advanced search string in the "Build Your Own Segment Search" field, or for simple searches, just hit apply to go back to the main screen (with your Financial Times limit applied) and type your search term in the box.  Hit Search to retrieve articles.

Sample search results page using the term "oil" limited to Financial Times:

You can select different limiters from the column on the left. You can also search within the results using the field highlighted in yellow above. You can also change the result sorting from the default Relevance to date published (Oldest to Newest or vice versa).

To read an article, simply click on the article title in the Results list. Your search term(s) will be colored red in the text of the article.
