Bloomberg Terminals

Terminals are available for accessing the Bloomberg Financial Markets data services.

Notice: During the current extended campus closure, in order to provide access to this on-site resource, Lippincott  Library is working to provide students with remote access to Bloomberg terminal services. For information about accessing Bloomberg remotely at Lippincott, please email:
lippincott@wharton.upenn.edu.

The Bloomberg terminals are solely for the use of accessing the Bloomberg Financial Markets data services. The terminals provide students with real-time data on the market, news, and the world. 

These terminals are not typical Wharton Lab computers;  they do not offer the same applications.

Logging In

Logging into the Bloomberg terminal differs from the way you log into other Wharton public computers. Login information is available at the Bloomberg terminals.
