Letters – ACCA library is useful.

Your article entitled ‘ACCA member – not amused’ (Taking Stock, June 7) is incorrect when it states ACCA’s royal charter requires it to provide a members’ library. In fact, the charter empowers us to provide a library; it does not place us under an obligation to do so.

The provision of a physical library might be deemed worthwhile – and fair – if our membership was limited to one country and able to access it. But we have nearly 300,000 members and students in 160 countries.

We do have a reading room, which contains largely historical reference books.

For up-to-date detailed information, our students and members are able to access our website, or visit or call one of our 60 centres around the world.

Anthea Rose, ACCA chief executive.
