Finding Standards

This guide provides information about the standards resources available in the Mason Libraries.

What are Business and Related Standards?

Accounting Standards define and standardize the accounting methods used so that they are consistent from business to business, and in all industries. Without these standards, comparisons of financial success between companies would be difficult. The Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) are widely accepted and used by businesses.
