Q. How do I access the Bloomberg terminals?
York University Business and Administrative Studies students can access one of the four Bloomberg terminals by coming into the Bronfman Business Library located in the Schulich School of Business 2nd floor south wing S237.
Students can book a specific time to use the terminal via the Bloomberg booking application. The duration of a time slot is in half-hour increments to a maximum of two hours per day. Please note which of the four terminals you have booked (A,B,C,D).
There is a five minute grace period for bookings. If you come 5 minutes after your booking time your booking time is forfeited and someone else is free to use the terminal.
