I almost gave up my search as I got older and I was slowly giving up hope of finding my Japanese wife. My Japanese girlfriend/wife has trouble with her family and friends.
However, things turned aorund quickly upon joining MJL. Finding girlfriends is easy, but I never find the right one for a longterm relationship!
The Agency for the Legal Deposit Libraries (ALDL) requests and receives copies of publications for distribution to five major libraries.
It is maintained by five legal deposit libraries and ensures that they receive legal deposit copies of British and Irish publications.
The Legal Deposit Libraries Act 2003 (UK) and the Copyright and Related Rights Act 2000 (Ireland) make it obligatory for publishers and distributors in the United Kingdom and Ireland to deposit their publications.
The agency must request copies on behalf of the five libraries within 12 months of the date of publication.
On receiving such a request from the agency, a publisher must supply a copy for each of the requesting libraries under the terms of the Legal Deposit Libraries Act 2003 (UK) and the Copyright and Related Rights Act 2000 (Ireland).
Legal deposit is the act of depositing published material in designated libraries.
Publishers and distributors in the United Kingdom and in Ireland have a legal obligation to deposit published material in the six legal deposit libraries.
