Liebe Frau Fischer,
vielen Dank - ich hatte es natürlich auch schon begierig in INETBIB
aufgesammelt und dem Herrn D. informiert, so dass wir es auf der
Präsentation in Köln schon angebracht haben.

> deposit legislation passed nearly 100 years ago in 1911. The Act enshrines

> > The introduction of MP Chris Mole's Bill followed a campaign to bring

> secondary legislation to be approved by Parliament that will ensure that
> non-print formats are included within the legal deposit system.
> > Since 1911 the six legal deposit libraries have been able to collect

> Administered by the Joint Committee on Voluntary Deposit (JCVD) -

> > Notes for editors:
> > 1. What is legal deposit? The 1911 Act requires publishers to deposit
> the British Library a copy of all published items produced in the UK and
> Ireland within one month of publication. The five other legal deposit
> libraries have the right to claim copies of the same material with 12
> of publication. (The Copyright Libraries Agency acts on behalf of the five
> other libraries to claim and distribute the material.)
> > Previously, the only published works covered by legal deposit were
> pamphlets, maps, printed music, journals and newspapers. With the new law,
> works published in non-print format will be collected including works
> published on CD-ROM; on the Internet; or on microfilm.
> > 2. What is the role of the legal deposit libraries? Together the six
> deposit libraries (The British Library; the National Library of Scotland
> the National Library of Wales; University Library, Cambridge; Bodleian
> Library, Oxford; and Trinity College Library, Dublin) maintain a
> National Published Archive, which has benefited generations of researchers
> from industry, academia and the general public.
> > The existing print legal deposit arrangements have enabled the British
> Library alone to collect and save, in perpetuity for the nation, more than
> 50 million items. In the last year the Library acquired 95,286 books,
> 248,686 journal issues, 1,994 maps and 2,357 newspaper titles through
> deposit. Once acquired, the Library stores and catalogues these items and
> provides facilities for researchers to access them. In this way millions
> unrelated items, which form the National Published Archive, are
> into organised knowledge and secured for posterity.
> > 3. Chris Mole MP. Chris is one of Parliament's newest MPs, becoming the
> Member of Parliament for Ipswich in a by-election in November 2001. In
> Parliament, Chris serves as a member of the Select Committee that
> scrutinises the work of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, the
> Deregulation and Regulatory Affairs Select Committee and the Joint
> on Statutory Instruments. Chris holds a degree in electronics from the
> University of Kent and moved to Ipswich in 1981 to work at the BT
> Laboratories at Martlesham Heath near Ipswich.
> > 4. What are the trends in non-print publishing? Over 60,000 non-print
> items (e.g. DVDs, CD-ROMs, electronic journals and other items delivered
> the web) were published in the UK last year. The impact of the extension
> legal deposit to non-print publications (Electronic Publishing Services
> Ltd., October 2002) forecasts that the number of electronic journal issues
> published in the UK will grow from 52,000 in 2002 to 193,000 in 2005. A
> recent phenomenon has been the emergence of single-article journal issues
> transmitted by e-mail - with an average of 40 issues for each title per
> year. Many publications, such as newspapers are being published in
> formats - print, web, CD-ROM and microform - but do not always have
> identical content. Similarly, there are a growing number of hybrid
> publications, such as print journals with added material available on the
> web or CD-ROM. The new Act will help the legal deposit libraries to
> and organise this knowledge.
> > 5. What non-print materials will now be saved? The major categories of
> non-print materials include:
> > - Publications accessed over the Internet, e.g. electronic journals.
> > - Websites - a limited and well-defined range of sites, judged to be
> research-level, will be regularly harvested for addition to the national
> > - Publications on media other than paper, such as microfilm or fiche.
> > - 'Hand-held' electronic publications on media such as CD-ROM or DVD.
> > The types of material include:
> > Records of key events of national life - e.g. national and local
> covering general elections, the millennium celebrations, the Queen's
> Jubilee and the Commonwealth Games - all containing useful historical
> > Resource discovery tools, to help researchers locate materials e.g. the
> Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts (ASSIA) or Legal Journals
> > Major directories - e.g. the Europe Info directory on DVD, an important
> resource with 130 million European residential and business listings, or
> Kelly's Portsmouth Directory on CD-ROM.
> > Current awareness services - e.g. Oxford Economic Forecasting's Weekly
> Brief - an electronic journal available only as a PDF or Zip/EXE file,
> typically distributed as an email attachment.
> > News sources - such as web editions of national and local newspapers, or
> the web-published results of public opinion polls from companies such as
> MORI, ICM or YouGov.
> > Professional 'bibles' - e.g. The Cochrane Library, 'the best single
> of reliable evidence about the effects of health care' (on CD-ROM and the
> web with no hard copy equivalent).
> > Important local and national government documents - e.g. the Home Office
> series of 'online only' research reports and web-based Government
> consultation papers, which are an important resource for lawyers and
> researchers in tracing the origin of legislation, and the minutes of the
> National Assembly for Wales.
> > e-journals - e.g. Sociological Research Online and the Journal of
> Information, available only on the web.
> > Conference proceedings - e.g. 9/11 and the Middle East: Electronic
> Resource published by the Royal Institute of International Affairs.
> > 6. What are other countries doing? A number of other nations have
> addressed, or are investigating, the extension of legal deposit. In
> new legislation has been drafted to cover all types of material whilst a
> voluntary scheme to obtain online material and websites - in operation
> March 2002 - has been generally well received by publishers and users
> In France the government has issued a directive to ensure that the
> library will collect all electronic material. Norway and Denmark have
> similar schemes and are actively collecting digital material in all
> information carriers, including websites. In Finland legislation was
> introduced in March 2003 to extend legal deposit to websites (current
> legislation includes other electronic material) whilst in New Zealand
> legislation has also been enacted this year.
> > 7. How the new scheme works? The Act will be implemented through a
> of Regulations, the first of which will almost certainly deal with offline
> publications, such as CD-ROMs and microform. Regulations will be proposed
> the Secretary of State, for affirmative resolution by both Houses of
> Parliament, following a statutory process of consultation with affected
> parties and a Regulatory Impact Assessment. This in turn will be preceded
> the work of an Advisory Panel, to be established by Government as an
> independent public body, to advise the Secretary of State for Culture,
> and Sport on the need for, and the shape of, specific Regulations. In
> advance of the establishment of the Advisory Panel, the JCVD will continue
> its work, as a forum for collaborative and voluntary endeavour between
> publishers and libraries, but with a broadened remit and an extended
