Leyburn Library has one Bloomberg Terminal, available for use by W&L students, faculty, and staff. The terminal is located on the north side of the Main Floor, near room M32.

  • A set of “Getting Started” instructions are kept next to the terminal, including the user id and password to log in.
  • Since users are not logged into their personal accounts when using the Bloomberg terminal, there is no direct access to networked storage.
  • There are online training materials available through the Bloomberg terminal, if you get into their help section and select “learn more” — “Bloomberg Basics” — “Learn More”
  • On the resulting list, you will see “Bloomberg University” and other training options. These are provided by Bloomberg to get new users started with the system.

An excellent detailed overview is available from Cornell. NOTE: Some aspects of Cornell’s access may not apply at W&L.
