Guide to historical resources

The collection of the ICAEW Library & Information Service includes many resources that can be used by researchers to trace the history of the profession, the evolution of accounting practice and the lives of accountants.

In this guide we highlight some of the material within the collection and the tools available to help you make best use of it.

Further valuable material for researchers can be found within the ICAEW archive at the London Metropolitan Archives and the collection of Accounting Standards Committee/Auditing Practice Committee papers at John Rylands University Library. For more information, see our archives listing.
