* Audio-visual material = audio-visual (e.g. CDs, DVDs, cassettes, films, multimedia kits, computer diskettes) ** born digital = materials created and designed to be read electronically *** Legal deposit funded by the ACT Heritage Library, but not required by law With the increasing demand for all types of digital services in the 21st century, the National Library has increasingly relied on diminishing human resources, to develop services on their Trove platform and the NED service.  The development and construction of the NED was a collaborative effort to provide a single digital platform for collaborative collection and preservation and access to all Australian-born digital publications, with public access via the Trove website.  Publishers file material via the NED website, and for most end users, discovery is done by Trove.  Yes, I think that`s how it works now. When I first heard about legal deposit, I had a lot of books to deposit, and I remember calling the State Library in Victoria to ask if I could do it by electronic deposit. So I had to do it twice for each book. NED is much better. I just wish they would bite the ball and say that printing or e-book is fine. With POD, you don`t have countless copies of your books stored in the garage. Could be quite expensive to buy prints just for libraries. Yes, I think so too. They`ve modernized the digital facilities, and now I think they`re also moving towards e-book deposits.
It makes sense when so many self-publishers create nothing but e-books. Facilitated national, state and territorial legal deposit A copy of all published in Australia must be delivered to the National Library in accordance with the legal deposit provisions of the Copyright Act (1968). Control where and when your e-filing can be accessed and reused by others Reach a wider audience with your e-filing via search services such as Google, Trove, and national, state, and territorial library catalogs In addition to the copy you submit to the National Library, individual copies of publications published in New South Wales must also be sent to the three depository libraries New South Wales Legal: In addition to depositing with the National Library of Australia, you must also deposit your publication with your home state or territory. First, contact your state or regional library for more information. Feedback from publishers has been positive from the start: more than 50 articles were submitted by publishers in the first 24 hours after the first launch in May 2019.  Delivery of your e-filing on a variety of digital devices A bit (ok, not “huge”) off topic, but in Greece it is also mandatory to file e-books. So I think if it`s not already the case in Australia, it will be soon. The National Library brings together all the histories of Australia.
Legal deposit ensures that your story is part of our rich and extensive collection. This means that print and electronic publications are subject to legal deposit and that the spectrum of publications is wide. For example, books, magazines, reports, newsletters, maps, sheet music and websites fall within the scope of legal deposit. Online materials must be made available to the relevant library(s) upon request; If it is not available on a publicly accessible website, publishers can use NED to deposit the material. In collaboration with the PANDORA web archive, the NED carries out the digital classification at the federal level. NED is designed to include digital repositories at the state and territory levels.   In 2016, legal deposit laws were extended to electronic publications. Legal deposit applies to any Australian person, group or organisation that distributes their works for sale or free of charge to the public. The library only asks you to make one copy of a work and we prefer digital.
If you send multiple copies, even in different formats, we will only keep one copy of the article and additional copies will be deleted. So always remember, please just send us a copy. Whenever possible, the library prefers electronic legal deposits. It`s easy, it`s free and it saves time. For more information on National Electronic Filing (NED), visit ned.gov.au. The core system was initially developed in-house at the National Library by a team of business analysts, software developers and library staff using the PRINCE2 project management methodology. It uses open source software such as Drupal and Java. On February 17, 2016, the day the copyright change for digital publications came into effect, the first e-book, Thomas Keneally`s Napoleon`s Last Island, was filed by employees of Penguin Random House.  It`s a bit complicated, but I believe that e-filing via NED can be an alternative to storing physical books – in national and state libraries. But you have to ask for it. All NSLA libraries encourage publishers to deposit their digital material if it meets the legal submission criteria, even in regions where the law is not yet applicable. The National Electronic Filing Service (NED) was launched in May 2019.
Legal deposit is a legal obligation under national and national legislation. It provides for the collection, preservation and access to works published in Australia or at the state level. Therefore, legal deposit plays an important role in the preservation of national documents. A copy of your publication must be deposited with the designated legal deposit library, the National Library of Australia (NLA). For more information, see Repositories on the NLA website. Legal deposit is a legal provision that legally obliges publishers – commercial publishers, individuals, associations, churches, associations, societies and organisations – to deposit copies of their publications with the National Library of Australia and the State or Territory Library of the region of publication. I suspect that in recognition of the explosion of self-publishing via e-books, the NLA is also moving towards mandatory e-book filings. Your intellectual property and business interests are protected when you file an application with the National E-Filing Service While there is no legal obligation to submit materials beyond that, donations from other libraries may be welcome if the content of the publication or its author has a close connection to their jurisdiction. Legal deposit ensures that material published in Australia is preserved for present and future generations.
