You already have access to electronic databses through the library.

The system certainly needs more funding, the main branch is dilapidated and in poor shape for a city the size of JC.

Or, the solution could be providing subscriptions to electronic databases, like the kind we used for research in college and grad school.

I work for a small market data company in Jersey City. If someone from the Jersey City Public library would want a market data terminal for the library, I'll be able to get a few login's for no cost. We are a couple of steps below Bloomberg but we can suffice for most people. PM me here and I will arrange it.

In addition to upfront costs, a bloomberg terminal requires a lot of training. This would be a HUGE waste of money.

I don't think the typical user of a Bloomberg terminal fits the profile of a public library patron. This move would not make any sense...

Uh... no. Bloomberg terminals are for financial professionals who need to see prices in real time. The only "discount" is $20k for organizations that use more than 1 terminal.

While that would be wonderful, it is not going to happen. The city just doesn't have the budget for it.

One Bloomberg terminal costs at least $24,000 a year.

I'm sure the JCPL can find a much better use for that kind of dinero.

other data services.


With more and more sophisticated people moving to JC, I think the library could stand to be upgraded. I love the magazine selection and I think its great they have many computer terminals, but I think they could probably make the space more efficient and 2014 as opposed to 1994.

thoughts! maybe a new business, science and industry library near harborside funded by one of great companies down there
