Abstract/ Summary

Is there a “digital divide” between smaller and larger CPA firms? This article describes how smaller firms may need access to specialized information to help their clients and make informed decisions. Fortunately, this information is often available to smaller firms through the Internet or dedicated public business libraries. The article suggests some resources available through dedicated business libraries and the help that's often available from research librarians employed at these facilities.
