Instructions and tips for getting started on the Bloomberg Professional terminals for research in business, finance, real estate and economics.


What Is Bloomberg?


Created by Michael Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg L.P., the Bloomberg Financial Service provides in-depth, company profiles; real-time news; current and historical financial and industrial data; real estate data; U.S. and international economic indicators; and quotes and technical analysis on U.S. and international securities.  Historical coverage varies.

Who Can Access It?

Bloomberg is available solely to current faculty, staff, and students for academic research or teaching purposes.  Access requires your active JHED authentication, university e-mail address and Bloomberg terminal account.

Where Is It?

Bloomberg is not remotely accessible.  Bloomberg software installations exist on designated terminals, for onsite access only.  Verify building hours before visits. Look for the special, colored keyboard that accompanies the terminal.
