The Refinitiv Eikon terminal in the Social Science Library gives access to global company, industry and economic data with deep historical time series available. In an effort to provide more flexible access to this resource, the fixed point terminal will be replaced by a remote ID system from Monday 13th November 2023.

Readers will no longer need to visit the SSL in person and will be able to access  Refinitiv Eikon from their own device, by obtaining a time limited ID (email to obtain an ID).

Further information can be found on the Eikon subject guide, Business & Management: Databases subject guide or by emailing or by enquiring at our issue desk.
