Bloomberg is a terminal-bound financial services platform that provides analysis and quotes for equities and indices, current company and economic data for the countries of the world, real-time and historical industry and market news, and advanced analytical and data functions. Bloomberg is an industry standard in financial services and investment banking. The Library's academic subscription does not include the trading module, and market data is delayed by 15 minutes.
Bloomberg Terminals that any current NYU student, faculty, or staff member can access can be found in the following locations:
NYU alumni and Friends of Bobst Library are not eligible for Bloomberg access. See "Alumni Access" (below) for an alternative.
Access policies are set by Schools. Members of those schools may require additional permissions for access. NYU affiliates outside these School's communities, alumni, and non-NYU-affiliates cannot access these terminals. (No exceptions.)
NYU alumni who are eligible for a New York Public Library (NYPL) membership and are a NYPL library card holder may visit the Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL) branch at 34th St and Madison Ave to access Bloomberg. More details can be found at their Bloomberg subscription description page.
Bloomberg must be used at the terminal; there is no remote access. You can recognize the terminal by its distinctive hardware: two monitors and a color-coded keyboard.
The login credentials required to use the Bobst Library terminals are posted at the terminals: The username and password are located on the desk, next to the monitors.
Login directions for other terminals vary.
Advanced users who want to save their progress and customize the interface can register for an account.
