Homepage / Registering for an LSEG Workspace account

Registering for an LSEG Workspace account


Access to EikonDatastream and SDC Platinum has changed! You no longer have to use a designated terminal in the SOM Library or Computer Studio, or log into the MIRC VM.  Eikon has been replaced by the Workspace platform (owned by London Stock Exchange Group, LSEG), and it is this platform where you can also access Datastream and SDC.

To access Workspace, please register for your own individual LSEG MyAccount.  You will then be able to access your LSEG MyAccount online from any PC or laptop, both on- and off-campus, using your login details. Your LSEG MyAccount stays with you at Cranfield and retains your personal settings and lists.

You may have to apply for Workspace permissions more than once throughout your studies as your access to Workspace may expire every two months. 

How do I register for LSEG MyAccount?

  • Go to the LSEG product self-registration page
  • Enter your University email address and click ‘Next’. (Please note, if you try to use your personal email address you will receive the error message ‘Email domain is not recognized’.) A verification email will be sent to the email address that you supplied
  • Open your University email inbox and click on the link you receive in the email ‘LSEG Email Verification’
  • Complete the profile details.
    • Enter your ‘First Name‘ and ‘Last Name‘.
    • In the ‘Reference‘ drop-down list, select the appropriate match for you:  Researcher / MBA / Staff / MSc / PhD / DBA

  • Make a note of your new user ID (usually your Cranfield email address) and create a password.

  • You are now in Workspace Web. You will be prompted to view a tour of the interface.

  • When you are asked to ‘Choose Your Path‘, clicking ‘USE WORKSPACE NOW‘ will take you into Workspace..

You are now fully set-up. Welcome to the world of Workspace! If you have any questions, please contact SOM Library staff.
