Checkpoint: Lavery's Database for Accounting

You can use Checkpoint to do tax and accounting research.

You can choose to set up an account in Checkpoint if you want to be able to save favorites, and customize your settings.

Checkpoint—quick access: does not require you to set up an account

Checkpoint—log in and set up an account

If you create a Checkpoint account, you can save items in favorites and in folders.

Your account is temporary, and it will expire. Once it expires, you can set up another new account.

NEW! August 31, 2020: You may set up a Student Account from anywhere using our new link below. Before, you would have needed to be on Fisher's campus network to set up an account.
