Legal Deposit Libraries legislation now covers electronic publications

Legal Deposit now covers material published digitally and online, so that the Legal Deposit Libraries can provide a national archive of the UK’s non-print published material, such as websites, blogs, e-journals and CD-ROMs. 

The Legal Deposit Libraries (Non-Print Works) Regulations 2013 came into effect on 6th April.

Access to the material is available from dedicated public workstations in the University Library and Affiliated Libraries in Cambridge.

Please visit the University Library's Legal Deposit website at to find out more about the legislation, how to access the material, and to link to some useful FAQs about its content and accessibility.
