Since 1801, we have been a printed legal deposit library for Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Our goal now is to further develop our digital collections. Irish publishers and distributors are required by law to deposit a copy of a book or periodical in each of the 13 legal deposit libraries in Ireland and the United Kingdom. The six legal deposit libraries work together to archive e-filing (eLD) copies and provide them with seamless access, with a growing collection of more than 5 million e-books and e-journal articles. This is the first time that collaboration of this magnitude has taken place in the UK, Ireland and internationally between major library institutions. More and more publishers are depositing electronic documents that are accessible in the same way in all libraries. Electronic formats make it possible to improve the search in a document that is not possible in printed publications. Documents obtained electronically by publishers are permanently stored by legal deposit libraries and are accessible only on the library premises. Legal deposit has been established at Trinity College Dublin since 1801 and represents a large part of the library`s collection of five million volumes. UK publishers and distributors are required to deposit a copy of each of their works with the British Library and, upon request, with the other five libraries mentioned, including the library of Trinity College Dublin, in accordance with the provisions of the Legal Deposit Libraries Act 2003 (United Kingdom).

Legal deposit is the legal obligation for publishers and distributors to deposit at least one copy of each publication free of charge in libraries designated for legal deposit. Legal deposit benefits authors, publishers, researchers and the public by helping to: The Irish Copyright Agency (c/o the library of Trinity College Dublin) provides Irish publishers and distributors with a local address to send works for redistribution to legal deposit libraries in the United Kingdom (other than the British Library). For more information about edepositIreland, please email Accessions Librarian. The library offers Irish publishers, research institutes and researchers a free place to deposit, store and put online their freely accessible electronic publications. Electronic filing is also called unprinted legal deposit (NPLD). Electronic deposit copies are documents received by the Library in accordance with the Legal Deposit Act. This legislation entitles the Library to a copy of any object published in the United Kingdom. Legal deposit libraries recognise that access only via library PCs (as required by the UK) can be a barrier to research and that, in certain circumstances, print is the preferred format.

In Trinity`s Stella search, UK eLD records for books currently include a link to make it easier for readers to make a print purchase recommendation. A successful recommendation means that the printed copy will be included in the library`s collections and can usually be requested within three weeks. When evaluating a recommendation, the Library applies the following restrictions: Irish publishers and distributors should send copies of their publications to: The Department`s duties and responsibilities are as follows: UK eLD elements can be identified in the Stella search as follows: In the library of Trinity College Dublin, we use the terminology „UK eLD” to refer specifically to e-filing British documents received in accordance with UK law. At present, the eLD does not cover Irish material under Irish regulations. You can also send four copies directly to the Agency for Legal Deposit Libraries in the UK at: The world of publishing is changing rapidly, but with your help we can continue to grow our collections in the future. We believe in supporting science and the impact of Irish research by providing a home and platform to store and share Irish publications in open access with the country and the international community. This material is not the same as commercially available digital equipment. Access is subject to a number of important restrictions: These requirements are addressed in section 198 of the Copyright and Related Rights Act 2000. Publications printed for legal deposit include books, newspapers, sheet music, maps, plans, diagrams and tables. On 6 April 2013, a new regulation came into force to extend legal deposit to documents published electronically and on the Internet. E-filing includes digitally published materials such as websites, blogs, e-books, e-journals and CD-ROMs.

Article 198, paragraph 1, provides: „The publisher of a book published in the State shall, within one month of publication, hand over at his own expense a copy of the book to each of the following bodies … ». Irish publishers and distributors are required to provide a printed copy of each of their works to the library of Trinity College Dublin, in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright and Related Rights Act 2000.

Some recommendations, especially the more expensive ones, may be rejected in order to maintain their sustainability. The current iteration of the scheme follows a popular pilot project, but has a broader scope, is integrated into UK eLD datasets and is exploited more effectively. It may be necessary to suspend the program when funds expire, and its continuation is subject to review as the library`s collection development policy evolves. Copies of the other six Irish libraries must be sent to the Library Acquisitions Department of each university.

Publications for the British Library should be sent directly to the following address:.
