Bloomberg Guide: Getting Started

This is a general guide on Bloomberg basic features and functions.


Bloomberg provides current and historical financial information on equities, stock market indices, commodities, fixed-income securities, currencies, and futures for both international and domestic markets.  It also provides company profiles and financial statements, analysts'  forecasts, and news on worldwide financial markets. 

The University has two Bloomberg terminals:

  • main (third) floor of the O'Neill Library at workstation B2
  • graduate computer lab in Fulton 260 - restricted to current CSOM graduate students and faculty.

Please note: Boston College has an academic subscription and access is ONLY available for the current Boston College Community

Accessing Bloomberg

To log into the workstation use your BC login information. Only current BC community members will be able to access the workstation. Then press the green connect key twice and enter CSOM as the userid and Bloomberg as the password.

Please limit your sessions to a half hour unless no one is waiting.
