Free Content Voluntary deposit of electronic publications: a learning experience

Download Article:


During the second half of 2002, Electronic Publishing Services (EPS) carried out a study on the likely cost impact of extending legal deposit to non-print publications. This article is not a summary of the report, which is publicly accessible on the Web, but focuses on a number of interesting phenomena and issues that EPS encountered in the course of the study. Statistics collected confirm the rise of email for serials and the demise of CD-ROM, yet original material in e-book format remains scarce. The voluntary deposit scheme for non-print publications in the UK has been a successful experiment, though not necessarily exactly as originally planned. New legislation may be enacted in 2003.
