    By Law, a publisher/author needs to deposit 2/3 copies of a book to the National Library.

    • Fund and price are not mandatory for this type of POL but possible. This means the POL will not be sent to the vendor.
    • For the physical books, Alma will send an email to the Vendor upon receiving (Thank you, legal deposit was received by the National Library) unless a "no letter" is selected.
    • For Journals, an Analytics report will be generated on a yearly basis and sent to the vendor informing them which issues arrived to the library.

    The following letters exist for orders of type LEGAL_DEPOSIT:

    • Legal deposit for annual receipts letter
    • Legal deposit claim letter
    • Legal deposit order letter
    • Legal deposit receipt letter

    Orders of LEGAL_DEPOSIT_NOLETTER type will not send a letter to the vendor, meaning if selected, all the letters below will not be sent to the vendor:

    • Legal deposit claim letter

    • Legal deposit receipt letter

    The only exception is the Legal Deposit Annual Receipts letter which is information aggregated from Alma Analytics and is send to the vendor.
