Scholarly material and legal deposit with NLSA


All scholarly material published and assigned an ISSN/ISBN, has to be registered with the National Library of South Africa (see Legal Deposit Act of 1997 attached). The NLSA is also responsible for assigning ISBNs/ISSNs in South Africa.

Following our inquiry as to how we must go about with online only material, where journals/monographs no longer have printed copies to submit, the NLSA responded that the details of the journals/monographs/others should be forwarded to:

Ms Marietjie de Beer

For those still printing in traditional ways, please see the places of legal deposit attached.
