Wellness week – send a postcard!

As part of University Life’s “Wellness Week,” the Columbia University Libraries will provide postcards Wed-Fri of this week at service points that students can use to write notes home to family or friends, with postage paid by the Libraries.  The postcards will NOT have postage on them, but they will all be gathered, have postage added to them by the Libraries, and sent out late Friday afternoon.

The station in the Watson Library of Business & Economics is located to the left (north) of our service desk in 130 Uris Hall.  A poster showing how to fill out a postcard can be found in this location.  Please speak with our desk staff if you have any questions.

Thomson One: Workaround for using Chrome and Firefox

Thomson One is a useful database for financial data on public companies, as well as merger and acquisition information and market data. Users can search and screen across databases to identify companies that meet your specific investment criteria as well as conduct peer analysis.  Includes Investext, Private Equity database (Venturexpert) and Thomson Deals (SDC Platinum).

However it proves to be difficult because of its compatibility with only Internet Explorer (IE) pre-version 10.  However this is a workaround with an extension/Addins for Chrome/Firefox.

Please note that not all functions are supported with this solution (i.e. downloading analyst reports).

Please note, this information was gathered from a various business libraries.
