A step closer to e-legal deposit

On 16 November, the report of the electronic-legal deposit committee was submitted to the government. The National Library of Sweden is heavily involved.
 
The National Library of Sweden has long called for a law regarding the legal deposit of electronic documents published on the web, among other places. In the present proposal, the National Library of Sweden is responsible for the preservation of that which is being submitted.
 
The new law may come into force on 1 April 2011 and its introduction would take place through a number of transitional provisions. The law can then first come into full force on 1 July 2013.
