Electronic Legal Deposit

On 6 April 2013, the Legal Deposit Libraries (Non-Print Works) Regulations 2013 were introduced by the UK Parliament to permit each legal deposit library to claim and receive publications in an electronic format. Publishers must continue to deposit in print format unless agreement to deposit electronically has been reached with one of the legal deposit libraries.

Who do we help?

We work with anyone who produces content in print format in the UK and Ireland by helping them to deposit their publications. This includes new and existing publishers, societies and organisations.

We work to ensure the legislation around publisher obligations and Legal Deposit are met for the libraries mentioned above. You can read more about thisĀ here. ALDL provide information to publishers about Legal Deposit and their obligations under Legal Deposit Legislation and provide information and contact details to allow publishers to deposit their publications.
