Attention Business students! Whether you are new to the Business School or you just want to brush up on your academic skills, you can quickly learn about which resources you can use and how to access them with our new Business Library Online Resources videos.
They average about 10 minutes in length each and consist of the following:
Business Libary Online Resources: get started -This video gives you a quick introduction to finding and using our wealth of online resources through our website and our library guides. We have specialist resources available for financial data, company information, market research, academic research, news and current awareness, and citing and referencing.
Doing a project on M&A? Library Resources has many resources available remotely for Mergers and Acquisitions. The most popular include:
Zephyr – Web-based database providing data on all kinds of deals including Mergers & Acquisitions, IPOs, private equity and venture capital. Add data about details of deals and download into Excel. Access it with your City username and password.
Eikon – Use the Deal Screener in Excel or the Mergers & Acquisitions Advanced Search (MASRCH) in the web version to find M&A to find data. For access please email email@example.com
We are pleased to announce that Library Services are now able to offer remote access to Morningstar Direct during the current closure period.
Morningstar Direct is usually only available from dedicated terminals on site. It is an investment analysis platform, providing access to investments in Indexes, Equities, Hedge Funds, Segregated Accounts, Open-End Funds, Closed-End Funds, Insurance/Pension/Life and Exchange Traded Funds.
Please note that Morningstarcan only be used on a Windows PC/laptop. Instructions for downloading Morningstar, the Excel Add-in, how to use the web version and the current password (which will change each week) can be obtained via the Cass Library Services Moodle Module.
We knew that having a centralised place to check would make your life easier, so we worked hard to produce a tool that would clearly show you the status of Library Services’ core systems and services. So now, in one place, we are able to highlight to you known issues and periods of service disruption, and provide you with information on alternatives where necessary.
On that page you will be able to check the status of our online resources, services and spaces. Specific major issues are highlighted at the top, but you can click on each category to get more details on what is happening (an alert shows next to a category when there is an issue related to it), and learn about other potential issues:
In Online resources are listed current issues with library resources and news items about upcoming maintenance, as well as workarounds for known issues. If you have found an issue with a resource, this page may tell you why. If not, you can report the issue to firstname.lastname@example.org
By checking the status of our Services, you will know if any of them is disrupted – did you know that all but one are available at the moment?
Currently all our physical Spaces are closed, of course, but this will be a useful page to remember checking when we reopen.
We are pleased to announce that we have been able to work with two of our suppliers to bring temporary off-campus access to two important resources that are normally only available on specific PCs: Eikon and Dealogic.
To get access to either resource, email email@example.com from your City email account, and a username and password will be issued to you for up to 23 hours. Each username and password is valid from 10:00 BST until the following day at 09:00 BST. You can request another session by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a limited number of licences for each database, so if all usernames and passwords have been issued, we will add you to a queue and issue you with details when it is your turn.
Eikon contains news, analytics and financial content. It also includes a range of prices for multiple assets, fundamentals, estimates and charts. Eikon users can find data from Worldscope, I/B/E/S, Lipper and Asset 4. Use the Excel Add-In to download data and access Datastream. You can use Eikon via the web or, if you’re on a Windows machine, download it. For more information please see the Cass Library Guides: https://libguides.city.ac.uk/cass.
Dealogic is a platform used by investment banks to identify M&A opportunities, cover the right clients, evaluate investor appetite and execute deals. You can use Dealogic via the web. Please follow the instructions available on the Cass Library Guides: https://libguides.city.ac.uk/cass.
The buildings might be closed but CityLibrary is most definitely open. Whatever help you need accessing and using Library resources and services, there are lots of ways you can get it, including:
We have extended our Online Chat service so you can now speak to a member of Library staff online from 9am to 5pm during weekdays. You can find the Online Chat box via the Library homepage.
When Online Chat isn’t available, you can still ask questions and find answers using our Ask Us service. If you can’t find an answer to your question straight away, simply submit a new question and we’ll get back to you with an answer as soon as possible.
