Thank you for the great job you do in supporting us consultants. It’s such a help to have the resources that you give. This morning it was so useful to borrow the Accessible Threshold book – which is now out of stock everywhere else – and to be given a quiet room to take notes. This is just a small part of the service as a whole that we benefit from and it is very much appreciated. – Liam, CAE member
