Datastream Workbook

Datastream (Thomson Reuters) is a Specialist Financial Database.   Thomson Reuters 

Within the MBS Library Service (Precinct and Eddie Davies Libraries) there are copies of a  ‘Datastream Workbook’, designed to assist students using Datastream.

This has been updated to include new content, such as a ‘Company Information – Quick Reference’ section (with: Share Price Data, Chart: Share Price Data for multiple companies plotted against a Price Index, Company Accounts and Company Overview of Performance).

In addition, the search procedures for Datastream Advance 5.0 and Datastream Advance for Office (Excel Add-In) are set out through a number of research questions. Step by step answers with screen shots, including use of the Navigator function (Find Series and Datatypes) are designed to promote independent learning and supplement the support from Library Staff. 

Datastream is available to use by current students and staff of the University of Manchester.

    It would be much appreciated if the Datastream Workbook were to be made available online, even to those who are not enrolled at the University of Manchester. I trust it would a much useful resource.
