Official Publications Depositories

A network of official publications depositories is envisaged for the country, and designated centers will be published in the South African Government Gazette.

The depositories will be entitled to receive a copy of each official (government) publication published in South Africa, making these publications more accessible to all communities throughout the country, with a depository in each province.

In terms of the Legal Deposit Act, no 54, 1997, and subsequent regulations (No. 7075 of 8 June 2001), the National Library is involved with coordinating the official publications depository service nationally. At present, the National Library has compiled an Official Publications Depository Manual, and developing a Training Programme based on the Manual.

Enquiries with regard to the Manual and Training Programme may be directed to:
