Bloomberg Terminals on the Tech Campus

The Library's terminal is available to use (and to reserve). It is near the Info. Desk, Ground Floor, of the Price Gilbert building.

Reserve it at:

    https://gatech.libcal.com/reserve/bloomberg

There are also several Bloomberg "terminals" on campus, within Colleges and Departments (yet - labs may not yet be re-opened). We have confirmed  that there are:

        2 terminals outside of classroom 200 in the Scheller College of Business. We do not know when access to the building is limited to Scheller-affiliated people.

 Other campus terminals are restricted to the students and faculty with access to those buildings/labs

       Scheller:  Grad Commons and on the Trading Floor.

       At the CODA building, the QCF lab.

 

    Who can use Bloomberg:

current Georgia Tech faculty, staff, and students

for academic purposes -- Library's eResource policies

At the terminal, you will need to set up a Bloomberg account. Instructions - linked below -  also in the notebook kept at the table for the terminal. A validation code is required; you will need your cellphone with you (a text message with the code will be sent within 1 minute)

Bloomberg Guides

Bloomberg Overview

Bloomberg was founded in 1981 as Innovative Market Systems. In 1985, it became Bloomberg Business News.  Per the company's website, Bloomberg "delivers data, news, and analytics through innovative technology, quickly and accurately, to individuals and across enterprises".  It also "provides real-time and historical pricing, indicative data, reporting, research, estimates, analytics, portfolio management tools".  Current company name is Bloomberg L.P.  Source:  Journal of Business Strategy, Sept./Oct. 1995 (p.28); Hoover's Company Profiles.
