Cambridge University Library

The first stage of access to the Electronic Legal Deposit is expected by August, the British Library has said.

The restoration will give access to non-print legal deposit materials collected before October 2023, when the cyber attack on the British Library took place.

Options for sharing materials collected after October 2023 are being considered with more details expected soon. The UK Web Archive will not be accessible during this phase of the restoration.

The British Library has said access will be restored in some form. Cambridge University Library, and the other legal deposit libraries, are working closely together, and we will need to ensure our access systems are working with the British Libary's new system once it is ready.

All our other resources, print and digital, are still available. We will also provide alternative ways to access electronic legal deposit content wherever possible. Talk to us and tell us what you need.
