Legal deposit

What is legal deposit?

In the Greenlandic act regarding library services "Inatsisartutlov nr. 8 af 8. juni 2014" it is stated in § 21 that of printed or audiovisual works published in Greenland in physical form, three copies must be delivered to Nunatta Atuagaateqarfia.The material in question is published copies of books, newspapers, periodicals, annual reports, CD-ROMs, videos, DVDs and phonograms. 

By delivering three copies of all publications to Groenlandica, the publishers are contributing to the securing of a very important part of the Greenlandic cultural heritage for posterity. 

The material should be delivered at or send to the legal deposit institution:
