Document supply

We can post, email or fax articles, book excerpts and model documents to you through our document supply service.

Library services during the Coronavirus outbreak

Please note that the library enquiries team will be running some restrictions on the service for an indefinite period as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. We will take emails, web-chats and form submissions as usual during 9-5 on weekdays, but the phone line will not be available. We will continue to provide information electronically where possible. Book loans and copies from physical stock will unfortunately not be available and visits to the library are not possible while Chartered Accountants’ Hall is closed.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused. We aim to help you as much as we can under these circumstances – please email us at library@icaew.com with your enquiry and access our extensive eBook library from wherever you are based.

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.

To request a document, call us on +44 (0)20 7920 8620 or email library@icaew.com.
