FARS is no longer available in the Business Library as our license expired. However, we have acquired the Accounting Research Manager (Audit Public) database (3 simultaneous users) to replace FARS. All of the information available in FARS should be available in the new database. The web-based Accounting Research Manager (ARM) database was made available at the beginning of this Spring semester, and it can be accessed at
