This paper provides an introduction to the National edeposit service (NED), launched in August 2019 as a world-first collaboration between the national, state and territory libraries of Australia. As a national online service for depositing, preserving and accessing Australian electronic publications, with benefits to publishers, libraries and the public alike, NED has transformed our approach to legal deposit in Australia.
