Does UCL have access to Bloomberg terminals?

Although a few UCL departments provide access to Bloomberg, these are reserved for staff and students from these departments only. Bloomberg Data Terminals aren’t available in UCL Libraries, but you can request a licence to LSEG Workspace which provides access to a wide range of financial data. In order to obtain a licence, please contact the e-resources team.  For further guidance on accessing the resource and basic navigation, please view the available support material.
