The accounting faculty is again assigning students assignments requiring them to search official accounting literature, which for this assignment is limited to the pronouncements and standards and other notices/announcements from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). I will detail access to this literature in a separate blog entry.
Short workshops on searching FARS (the Financial Accounting Research System) will be offered:
Monday, Oct. 24, 5 pm. Room 135, first floor of the library
Tuesday, Oct. 25, 1 p.m. Room 135, first floor of the library
Wednesday, Oct. 26, 4:30 p.m. Room 135, first floor of the library
Saturday, Oct. 29, 1 p.m., Room 135, first floor of the library.
Monday, Oct. 31, 4 p.m., Room 135, first floor in the library
Thursday, Nov. 3, 1 p.m. Room 130, first floor in the library
Friday, Nov. 4, 5:30 p.m. Room 135, first floor in the library
Saturday, Nov. 5, there is a regularly scheduled Accounting Resources workshop at 12 noon in Room 135 in the library. I will incorporate FARS in this workshop. The workshop goes from 12 to 1:15 p.m. (Students should sign up for the Nov. 5 workshop by going to Instruction on the Newman Library homepage.)
For all other workshops, students can just show up. They should last about 20 minutes, based on my experience last year.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
