Due to the current COVID situation, Bloomberg is now available online. This is a temporary measure in light of the current situation and replaces the physical PC terminals that were available previously in the Library and Moore Annexe. The College has 16 licences, so only 16 users can access Bloomberg at one time.
There are two ways to do this:
Bloomberg will be unavailable on Mondays from 11 January to 22 March 2020 (10.30am to 5pm) as all available licences are required for teaching. Please do not try to access Bloomberg during this time.
