Remote Access to Bloomberg

How to access the Bloomberg Market Concepts certification program online:

  1. Create an account using an email address at
  2. You will receive a verification email; click the Activate My Account link it in and follow the instructions.

If you want to actually access a terminal remotely, you must do the above, and then create a Bloomberg Terminal login:

  1. Sign in at and click the Terminal Access tab.
  2. Disregard the message about contacting a faculty member for authorization. Instead, a BYU librarian will email you after authorizing your account (usually within 24 hours; contact if you do not receive this authorization).
  3. Return to and click the Terminal Access tab. Follow the instructions to create a Bloomberg Terminal Login.
  4. From now on you can go directly to to log in with your Bloomberg Terminal username and password. Each time it will send you an authentication code.

Why Use Bloomberg?

Bloomberg Reservations

Bloomberg Terminal Reservation System

Usage Policies

  • The library's Bloomberg terminal is accessible when the library building is open (see library hours).
  • Please reserve the terminal when you use it. If you come to the terminal without a reservation and it is not in use, remember to reserve it before you begin your session, otherwise another person might reserve it and you will be required to give up your seat.
  • You may only reserve the terminal for one consecutive hour. If, after that time, another person has not reserved the terminal or arrived to use it, you may continue to use it, though you must give up your seat if someone does reserve it.
  • You can reserve the terminal for more than one hour per day, but please cancel your reservations if you will not be using them.
  • Only BYU students and employees can reserve the terminal.
