The newly-renovated Accounting Library

Accounting and business students returned to USC this fall to find an updated Accounting Library with new technology, furniture, and carpeting. The renovations, the first at the library in fourteen years, further the USC Libraries' efforts to optimize spaces for student use.

With attractive new tables and chairs, the library's reading room is an ideal venue for individual study and work. A bank of desktop computers is available to accounting and business students. (A MyMarshall login is required.) The computers run specialized accounting software and sport the latest technology: powerful Intel Core i5 processors and twenty-four inch LCD monitors.

Eight breakout rooms are specially equipped for group projects and collaborative study. The rooms, which are available by reservation or on a walk-in basis when not reserved, feature large television screens that students can connect to their laptops.

With many of the latest accounting and business resources available online in digital form, the renovations allowed the library to streamline its book and reference stacks. Shelves circling the library's reading room offer a selection of books, bound journals, and other indispensable print resources, including sets of Tax Management Portfolios and U.S. Tax Court Reports. Current journals are kept in shelves underneath the circulation desk.

Created in 1983, the Accounting Library supports the research and educational needs of Leventhal School of Accounting students and faculty. It is located on the first floor of the Accounting Building.
