Consultation on legal deposit

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport launched a consultation on 24 February 2012 on the revised draft regulations for the legal deposit of non-print works.

Legal deposit is a statutory requirement that a person or group submit copies of their printed publications to the British Library and, on their request, the other deposit libraries (the National Library of Scotland; the National Library of Wales; the Bodleian Library, Oxford; the University Library, Cambridge; and the Library of Trinity College, Dublin) so that they can be preserved for the benefit of future generations and become part of the national heritage. The consultation launched today sets out our draft regulations, guidance and impact assessments for the legal deposit of non-print works.

As this consultation follows on from an earlier consultation (which closed in January 2011), we are primarily seeking views on the parts of the regulations which have been revised. However, we also welcome more general feedback on any aspect of the regulations, impact assessments or guidance.

The consultation document and further information is available on the DCMS website: .

Please forward this link to anyone you know who will be interested in this consultation. A Welsh language version of the consultation document will also be available shortly.

Consultation responses can be sent to before the closing date of 18 May 2012 using the questionnaire at Annex A of the consultation document.
