Downloading limits

All academic accounts have a monthly downloading limit. This is strictly enforced by Bloomberg.  If we have reached our monthly downloading limit users will see the following error message when they try to download: #N/A Limit. The limit will be reset on the first of the next month. If you think you need to download a great deal of data please consult with a librarian

Bloomberg can be used for educational purposes ONLY. Any use for commercial reasons is a violation of our license.

Important Information

There are ten Bloomberg terminals available across the Libraries:

seven in the Watson Library

The Bloomberg terminal is available on a first come, first served basis. Columbia students working on assignments that require Bloomberg use have priority.
