Bloomberg: Accessing Bloomberg


Due to access issues because of the pandemic, the Bloomberg database is now only available remotely.  If you can't find the financial or market data you need in the other databases included in the Financial Resources guide, an appointment can be scheduled to use Bloomberg Online. Request via this link to do so.

Bloomberg terminals are open to all members of the Tufts community.  Users typically must log onto the machine with their Tufts username and password.  Bloomberg use is for non-commercial, academic research only.



Bloomberg is recognized as the industry standard for financial databases. Use Bloomberg to find nearly any type of financial data, including equities, fixed income, indices, commodities, currencies, and more. Bloomberg has data on more than 5 million bonds, equities, commodities, currencies & funds. It covers most every publicly traded company in the world, and has profiles on more than a million people.

Data Limits

Each Bloomberg terminal has monthly download limits that are strictly enforced by Bloomberg.  When the terminal is at its monthly limit users will see #N/A LIMIT error message in Excel.  The data limits will automatically reset on the first of the month.  Please let a reference librarian know when the terminal has reached its limit.

Please remember no systematic downloading.  Be considerate of fellow students - always download only what you need.
