Bloomberg Terminals

The Gast Business Library maintains a Bloomberg terminal like those in the Financial Lab in the Broad College of Business. Bloomberg terminals provide detailed information on providers of goods to specific companies however the Bloomberg resources can only be accessed from these specific terminals or computers.

To look up suppliers, customers, and peers on a Bloomberg Terminal, first look up the equity by name or ticker symbol, then type SPLC <GO>. This will bring up a graph of suppliers and customers, including percentage of revenue generated from this business link. 

Bloomberg sources its information from a variety of sources, but is not complete.
