This summer we've been processing a large gift of maps from Professor Emeritus John Hunter. These maps are primarily of Ghana and Sierra Leone, and include both detailed topographic maps and thematic maps illustrating disease eradication projects.

Blog: Map Library   Categories: Uncategorized

We've had some major additions to the Map Library collection in the last few months. In March we added about 5,000 detailed topographic maps of the world, including Mexico (1:50,000), Canada (1:50,000), Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Colombia. The maps came with 26 map cabinets, which raised our cabinets to new heights! All maps may be retrieved safely and comfortably with our two rolling ladders.

FARS was replaced by Accounting Research Manager (Audit Public)
April 02, 2008 - 3:19:35 pm (America/Detroit)
Blog: Business Library News   Categories: Uncategorized

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

http://guides.lib.msu.edu/link.phtml?page_id=1313&element_id=38279. The ARM database is updated daily up to 5 times per day.


E.g., 2023-12-03
