Tip:  Do I need to use a Bloomberg Terminal?  
A Bloomberg Terminal is mostly for faculty and doctoral students doing advanced research that requires lots of of granular or time-series data.  If you're not doing that type of research, then the UCI Libraries have other databases with similar information; plus they're relatively easier to use too!

For other database recommendations, look under the TOPICS menus, located on the Business and Economics Research Guides.
