Conference Proceeding: The Future of Legal Deposit Materials: Digital Collection Management at the National Library of Israel

The National Library of Israel has historically collected all Israeli publications under the Legal Deposit Law. A recently approved revision of this law broadened it to also include digital materials. With this revision, Israel joined the handful of countries that have committed to collect the wide variety of digital publications, including e-books, music, databases and various digital-born publications. The speaker will analyze the practical implications of the revisions of the Legal Deposit Law and examine the NLI's endeavors to meet the new requirements and opportunities embedded in this revision. Understanding the challenges and the potential answers will open new avenues for collaboration and shape how we manage and access these digital collections.
