Library services during COVID-19

The ICAEW Business Centre in Chartered Accountants Hall, London, has re-opened to members. At present our Library & Information Service continues to operate as normal, but the situation is being kept under review following UK government announcements on 8 December 2021. If you are planning a visit and would like confirmation of our opening hours please telephone ahead of your visit.

We continue to provide book loans, enquiry and research services, and digital resources to members and other users remotely, as well as to visitors in person.

Find out how to contact or visit the Library, borrow and return books, access eBooks and digital resources, and what we’re doing to keep visitors safe.

You can use the library catalogue to find details of all the books in our collection, as well as over 50,000 abstracts and summaries of journal articles. If you can't find the material you need, our enquiry team will help you to track it down.
