Legal Deposit 

Legal deposit legislation in Australia and New Zealand obliges publishers to deposit copies of their publications at one or more NSLA libraries. Find out more about legal deposit requirements in Australia and New Zealand.

With recent changes to legislation, more digital publications are being collected under legal deposit provisions and planning is underway for a national collaborative approach. 

This work is led by the National edeposit (NED) steering group.
