Student Remote Support

How do I find digital resources through the library?

No VPN Needed

When accessing digital resources through our catalog, you will be prompted to log in using your Union username and password. You do not need a VPN. Note: students studying abroad and international students at home may need the VPN before starting research. For more information, we have put together a guide on getting off-campus access. Please contact reference@union.edu to learn more about our online resources or if you encounter problems finding and accessing digital content.

Ask a Librarian about our Digital Resources

Librarians will be available to answer questions about how to conduct research and how to navigate our digital resources. We are available by phone, email, and appointment using zoom.

What if I can’t find online versions of the resources I need?

  • Shipping and Scanning Requests
  • Ordering resources through Interlibrary Loan
  • Purchasing digital resources through the library

Can I access the Bloomberg Terminal remotely?

  • Bloomberg Terminal and Bloomberg Market Concepts Course

    The Bloomberg Terminal is a software system for real-time financial data analysis, trading, and news, and it is remotely accessible to the Union community during the COVID-19 pandemic. For information on how to access the Terminal remotely, please visit our Bloomberg Remote Access Guide.

    Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) is a self-paced ten-hour e-learning course that provides an interactive introduction to both the financial markets and the Bloomberg Terminal. It is available for up to 60 students and faculty for the Spring term. For students in particular, BMC is a helpful credential in job applications, offering a certificate of completion that can be mentioned on résumés. For information on how to access BMC remotely, please visit our Bloomberg Remote Access Guide.

    If you have questions or issues about the Bloomberg Terminal and / or Bloomberg Market Concepts, please email Adam Mazel, Digital Scholarship and Instruction Librarian, at mazela@union.edu.
