This request will come through us (we will send you an email if we receive a request from ALDL for 5 copies of your book).
If you submitted one copy of your book electronically to the British Library (instead of by post), then you don’t need to do anything more – a single e-book deposit satisfies your obligations to all of the legal deposit libraries thus reducing costs of sending multiple printed copies. However if you submitted one copy of your book by post to the British Library, and then you receive a request for 5 additional copies of your book, you’ll need to send these copies by post to the address below:
Agency for the Legal Deposit Libraries
Unit 21 Marnin Way
NOTE – you can send these 5 copies if you wish anyway, without necessarily waiting for a demand.
