Organization Type: National Library
Country: Serbia

National Library of Serbia is one of a few libraries collecting e-versions of all printed publications in Serbia in the framework of the Legal Deposit. Faced with the problem of archiving and preserving this kind of e-publications, Library started project of collecting, cataloguing and archiving digital cultural heritage of Serbia in 2015. Legal obligation to work on web archiving comes from the Law on library and information activities from 2011.  National Library of Serbia in Belgrade, together with the Library Matica Srpska in Novi Sad, both deposit libraries, have obligation to archive Internet domain of the Republic of Serbia. Biggest challenge in this process will be not to duplicate the same content out of Latin and Cyrillic domains existing parallelly in Serbian web.
