Proper Use:

  • Please understand that you should use Wind and Bloomberg only for the purpose of academic research and courses, with the knowledge that for-profit and/or personal uses are forbidden. You can never share full or substantial portions of reports, articles, spreadsheets, datasets, etc. from Wind and Bloomberg with anyone outside of NYU Shanghai, including experiential client projects, internships, and current employers.
  • The maximum booking duration is 120 minutes each time and two times a day. We hope everyone can be attentive to their booked slots and obey the rules to make others use the terminals conveniently. 
  • If the reserved workstation is occupied when you arrive, please notify one of the staff at the desk. Note that you may forfeit your reservation if you are more than 15 minutes late, or leave the terminal unattended for more than 15 minutes during your reservation period.
  • Excel Add-In (also known as API) download limits: Yes. When the download is at its limit, users need to wait until the first day of the next month (Bloomberg) or another 7 days (Wind) before it resets or try the other terminals. Please remember to be considerate to fellow users - only download what you need or export data from the terminal interface directly which doesn’t count in the download limit of Excel Add-In.
