During unreserved hours of the lab, you can use your Husky card to tab on the card reader by the MLG 322 glass door to access the lab and use one of the four Bloomberg terminals. You need to log in one of the desktop computers at the back of the lab just as how you log in a library computer. Once you log in the computer, click the Bloomberg icon (either on desktop or in the taskbar) to launch Bloomberg.
