1. Use Bloomberg (located in Feldberg Library on all public computers). Type CMDTY, hit GO, and then hit HELP.
2. Use Global Financial Data which features commodity prices back to the 1500s. Use the Data Series drop-down to find Commodity Indices or Commodity Prices. (Login anonymously or create your own account - read instructions)
