The American Library Association (ALA) and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) recently submitted comments to the Library of Congress (LOC) regarding mandatory deposit of published electronic works available only online.
In their comments, the ALA and ARL state that this initiative to preserve and provide access to journal literature is necessary in light of significant technological advances, such as the increasing number of journals being published only online. The ARL and ALA commend the Library of Congress for proposing this initiative to ensure that it continues building the collections of the library.
