Thomson Reuters Eikon + Datastream is now installed on standalone computers in our Bennett (Burnaby) and Belzberg (Vancouver) libraries, as well as on one of the Bloomberg terminals (#3) in the trading room of the Segal Graduate School of Business (restricted access to that last location).  We're still working on installing it in our library at the Surrey campus.

As mentioned earlier, we will be highlighting different features of Eikon + Datastream over the next few months. Click here to see the posts that touch on this resource so far.
