statutory obligation of legal deposit requires publishers to deposit copies
of their publications in libraries in the country in which they are
published. A copy of any work published in Australia must be deposited with
the National Library of Australia and the Victorian State Library.
Legal deposit of the material is the responsibility of the publisher or
Legal deposit extends not only to commercial publishers, but also to
private individuals, clubs, churches, societies and other organisations.
Legal deposit should not be confused with copyright - a protection granted
automatically in Australia from the time a work is created.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
