Bloomberg Terminal Information

Thanks to the generosity of the School of Management, the Libraries installed our first Bloomberg terminal this semester.  The terminal is located just inside the door of the Government Documents room, which is to the far left of the Bartle Library Research Help desk.  There is no sign up for the terminal–it is first come, first served.  Use of the terminal is restricted to Binghamton University faculty, staff and students and is to be used for academic purposes only. Enrollment in the School of Management is not required. Registration is required for use of the terminal–this may take up to 15 minutes or so.  It may be helpful to have a cell phone when registering, as codes may be sent to you.

Three Database Trials

The Libraries are running three database trials of interest to business students.

The SAGE  Video Collection contains key videos in social science disciplines, including business and management. It runs through 2/28/2017.

Country Watch serves as a source for in-depth country reports covering business, economic forecasts, culture, environment, government, and global election news.  Covers 195 countries. Trial runs through March 10.

Both Country Watch and the Sage Video Collection can be accessed via the Libraries’ Trial Databases page.

The third trial is for the IBISWorld Procurement Database.  The Libraries already subscribe to the IBISWorld Industry Database.  The Procurement Database is based on Porter’s Five Forces and SWOT analysis provides a deep dive into nearly 1,000 product and service markets. University faculty and students across various departments use the collection when it’s beneficial to research product and service markets. E.g., creating a business plan and using  IBISWorld Procurement to understand the major vendors, range of profit margins, life-cycle of the product/service, substitute and related goods, and regulation to know when entering a market.  The trial does not permit PDF downloads, but it does allow Excel downloads.Trial runs through February 24th.

IBISWorld Procurement Database can be accessed by going to the IBISWorld Industry Database page.
