The Databases are accessible on all the computers at Lazarski University.

CEIC databases help analysts and economists make sense of the world economy. Please note that the new system uses personal email and self-selected password for access.
Each student/user will see two options on startup: use the platform as a guest only from the designated IP, or register with their personal email (the screen that you see on startup). In the second case they will be able to create personalized insights and save their work to get back to it later, so it is recommended that each user registers with their own credentials. There is no limit on how many registered personal emails there could be.
In the new platform there is also a great new feature which allows all registered users to download data to excel and refresh, check for new updates, apply formulas, etc. directly in Excel. Once logged in, you will see a prompt to download the CDMNext Excel add-in from the CEIC website.
