Information Services and Library: Service Alerts and News

June 2022

Important: W/B 20th June

Planned strike action on the rail network and London Underground this week means that the Library service will be affected.

On Tuesday 21st we will aim to run an in-person service from 10:00-15:00hrs (although this may prove to be impossible).Outside of these hours  (and if the staff member is unable to get in) we will cover email, phone and live chat remotely. Book loans and returns will be available through the self-service kiosks, but we will not be able to process click and collect requests if there are no staff on campus.

Wednesday - Friday we aim to run an in-person service during our normal hours (10:00-19:00), but it may be that we are forced to make some slight alterations as train services will be running a reduced timetable.

 

Bloomberg – remote access ending

Bloomberg have confirmed they are withdrawing remote access to Bloomberg from all universities on 30th June 2022. This was only ever a temporary model, in response to Covid.  Bloomberg do not offer alternative access models to universities, so we will be reverting to our pre-pandemic on-campus model after that date. Friday the 24th June is the last day that we will authorise remote access requests for Bloomberg.

Bloomberg IDs will begin to be transferred back to the terminals in the Finance Suite SO.W2.01/02 from the 27-28th June and we also aim to install at least one terminal in B101 during w/b 4th July. This will result in 15 available terminals in total.  (During the change-over period you may struggle to login to Bloomberg remotely due to the shrinking number of IDs.) Your current logins should work on all Bloomberg terminals once the licenses have been reinstated there.

The Sammy Offer Centre is currently closed at weekends but will be reopening at weekends from 1st August.

Don’t forget -  students,  staff and faculty have remote access to: Capital IQ (with Excel Add-In), Factset, Workspace, Mergent and WRDS.

Information about the Finance Suite including Bloomberg can be found on page on Physical Library Spaces

Reminder:

Thursday 2nd June and Friday 3rd June are public holidays in the UK. The Library will be staffed on those date from 11:00-17:00hrs.

February 2022

ThomsonOne access has now ended.

We would recommend you consult our Company Research Guide for advice on where to find different types of content, but if you are looking for analysts' research we would now recommend you use the Investext module in Mergent Online.

 

Workspace has now been launched for students!

Workspace licenses can be requested from the A-Z list.  We are currently issuing them for two weeks at a time, but we will be monitoring this and it may change it in the future.

Use Workspace for company data (financials, deals, ownership data etc.) and financial market and economic data and analytical tools.
If you wish to download long time series of data please request the Datastream add-on when completing the form. Please be aware that Datastream works through an Excel add-in and is currently only available for Windows users.

MergentOnline is now our primary source of analysts' research (use the Investext tab once in the database), but Bloomberg, Factiva and Proquest also have limited numbers of reports.  

January 2022

Capital IQ has changed to Single Sign on (SSO).  

Capital IQ no longer requires pre-registration, instead follow the SSO link from our A-Z list of databases.  For those who have previously registered your existing access method will continue to work, but if you prefer to use the new SSO link any preferences you had saved will still be available to you.

For those who would like to use the Capital IQ Excel plug-in or who have previously accessed it, please see the following document

December 2021

 

Datastream as a standalone platform will end on 31st December 2021.

This will mainly  impact those Faculty and PhD students who had it installed on their pc. If you fall into this group please see the page on Eikon and Workspace IDs to ensure you can still access the content you need.

For students on our degree programmes Datastream will continue to be accessible from the two Eikon terminals in SO.W2.02.  Announcements about increasing access will follow in the Spring term.

Our access to T1 will end in the next few weeks as the platform is being retired. We will communicate details of the replacement(s) and remove ThomsonOne from the A-Z list once we have finished testing access to the new platform.
