Voluntary deposit

"Voluntary deposit" is an agreement by which publishers commit to deposit material with the national bibliographic agency in the absence of a formal statutory requirement. The national bibliographic agency may also make commitments relating to the agreement concerning the description, long term preservation and access to material received. An effective voluntary agreement will include many features in common with formal legal deposit agreements, whether for print or digital material.
