Law no. 106 of 15 April 2004 "Regulations governing the legal deposit of documents of cultural interest destined to public use" was published in Official Journal no. 98 on 27 April 2004. The purpose of this law was to regulate the obligatory deposit of publications, including "documents disseminated through the computer network" so as to preserve the memory of the culture and the social life of our country.
This law was then updated through the "Regulation for provisions governing the legal deposit of documents of cultural interest destined to public use", issued through the Decree of the President of the Republic (D.P.R.) no. 252 dated 3 May 2006, published in Official Journal no. 191 on 8 August, which came into force on 2 September 2006.
Pursuant to this Regulation, the documents identified by Law 106 are to be deposited "within 60 days of their initial distribution to the public" at the institutes identified in the same document. More specifically, the Regulation schedules "the deposit of two copies of documents produced and distributed in Italy in the national Archive of editorial products, and of a further two copies in the regional Archive of editorial products of the region in which the entity obliged to legal deposit has its headquarters."
For the conservation of the paper copies of the works published by FUP, copies are deposited at the National Central Libraries of both Rome and Florence (BNCR and BNCF).
The FUP electronic publications are also archived in voluntary deposit at the National Central Library of Florence as a result of the agreement drawn up in 2000 between the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Florence and the Director of the National Central Library of Florence (BNCF).
