  • Find current information in journals and trade magazines or on websites
  • Rules, theory, and historical information can be found in books
  • Reference books in HG 4051 - HG 4057 contain information on specific companies
  • General Collection books in HF 5601-5689 contain accounting theory and related information
  • Find Articles and financial data through the sources listed on the Articles tab
