The British Museum Library and colonial legal deposit



THE full story of colonial legal deposit has not yet been written and with the scattered and incomplete nature of the records may never be wholly recounted. What follows in this and in a subsequent article on 'The British Museum Library and the India Office' is an outline of the complicated history of the relevant legislation, the attempts to enforce it and a preliminary evaluation of the benefits these brought to collection building in the British Museum Library.
