Bloomberg Terminal

A guide on how to use and access the Bloomberg Terminals at the NYU Law Library

What is the Bloomberg Terminal?

Bloomberg is a terminal-bound financial services platform that provides analysis and quotes for equities (stocks) and indices, company and economic data for the countries of the world, real-time and historical industry and market news, and advanced analytical and data functions. It is an industry standard in the financial services and investment banking industries.

Higher education terminals - including NYU's terminals - do not include the trading module.

Market data is delayed by 15 minutes.

The Terminal also provides access to Bloomberg Government <BGOV>. BGOV allows you to track federal and state legislation, find hearing transcripts and CRS reports, view Congressional directories, and access other government intelligence tools. 


The NYU Law Library has two computers with Bloomberg Terminal access. The terminals are located within the Law Library B2 Computer Lab in the second basement under Vanderbilt Hall

There are also Bloomberg Terminals available through NYU Libraries. More information on how to access them can be found on their Bloomberg guide

Bloomberg must be used at the terminal; there is no remote access
