Collections and services


From the teaching kit to the USB flash drive: an encyclopedic collection on a variety of media

What are multimedia materials?

Consisting of more than 100,000 items, the collection has been built up since the legal deposit scheme for multimedia materials – i.e. materials using multiple media, at least one of which is audiovisual – was introduced in 1975. This legal deposit scheme was extended by the 1992 Act to cover all electronic publishing.

Electronic publishing makes use of a wide variety of media: diskettes, CD-ROMs, game cartridges, DVD-ROMS, UMD discs, Blu-ray discs, USB flash drives, etc.
