An Important source for audiovisual documents : the Legal Deposit.

According to the law on the Legal Deposit of sound records and films, the National library is responsible for collection, cataloguing, conservation and consultation of these documents. The study of the law itself is followed by an analysis of this essential source. A database on audiovisual documents will be settled by the National library, which is the first step towards the remote access to a copy of the document itself. The Legal Deposit is expected to change in the future: the progress of audiovisual documents should lead the Legal Deposit not only to duplication, but also to representation.
