Due to Covid-19 restrictions the Library will not be able to provide access to all the items and equipment usually loaned out. The list below describes the current status of our equipment:
The University’s Bloomberg terminals will be available for remote use only by current Suffolk University students and faculty.
Requesting a Login
Students and faculty that do not have an existing Bloomberg Terminal login, can request a Bloomberg username (must use Suffolk email) and password at our BMC web portal: https://portal.bloombergforeducation.com/
Logging In to a Terminal Remotely
Once a student or professor has a Bloomberg login (different from a BMC login), users may login to Bloomberg remotely in the following way:
Step 1: Navigate to https://bba.bloomberg.net/
Step 2: Enter personal Bloomberg username and password
NOTE: Bloomberg Terminal credentials should be used. BMC credentials are NOT valid here.
Step 3: Verify identity with a code sent to the enrolled email or mobile device. If this information is not already on file with Bloomberg, contact customer support: https://www.bloomberg.com/professional/support/support-numbers/ or at +1 212 318 2000.
Renewing Items: To renew items, please log into your library account using your full name and Suffolk ID number. You may also call the Circulation Desk at 617-573-8535.
The Library has a Take-Out Service for borrowing books. This contact-free option allows patrons to request books through the library catalog and pick them up without stepping inside the library. Requests may take 24-48 hours to fulfill.
Instructions for requesting an item:
3. Enter your name and Suffolk ID number and hit Submit.
4. Picking-up the Item
When your item is ready for pick-up, you will get an email from the Circulation staff to arrange a pick-up time during Library hours.
