Publishers should send five copies of their publications to the Agency for the Legal Deposit Libraries (ALDL).
The agency acts on behalf of five of the legal deposit libraries:
- National Library of Scotland
- Bodleian Library, Oxford
- Cambridge University Library
- Trinity College, Dublin
- National Library of Wales
Publishers who currently send single copies of their titles direct to the National Library of Scotland should continue to do so.
In addition, the National Library of Scotland sometimes requests material direct from publishers. For further advice about how to deposit with the National Library of Scotland, contact us about legal deposit.
Based in Edinburgh
The agency is registered as a company limited by guarantee. Its directors represent all the legal deposit libraries listed above.
