New Consultation for Non-Print Legal Deposit

The Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has issued a consultation on a draft Legal Deposit Libraries (non-print works) Regulations 2013. To download the documents, visit:

The draft regulations are designed to ensure the Legal Deposit Libraries provide a national archive of the UK’s non-print published material. This is to cover off line content and on line content that can be obtained through a web harvesting process. The DCDMS is seeking feedback on revised draft regulations and impact assessments for non-print legal deposit.

The consultation is open until 18 May 2012.
