Advice - Legal Deposits

Legal deposit is a requirement for Australian publications to be deposited with the National Library of Australia.

On 17 February 2016, the legal deposit provisions were extended to cover the online publishing landscape. This includes all Australian print and electronic books, journals, magazines, newsletters, reports, sheet music, maps, websites and public social media. Legal deposit applies to any Australian person, group or organisation that makes this material available to the public for sale or for free.
