Providing long term access • Print journals– purchased materials held in libraries and national libraries with legal deposit legislation (since 1662 in England) retain material • Electronic –Libraries do not ‘own’ the material. They have a licence to ‘use’. Who, then, is (or should be) responsible for long term access? Publishers, subscription agents, national libraries? There is legal deposit legislation in UK (passed April 2013) but it is quite restrictive (need to make a visit to one of the national libraries). 4
