New statutes for the library passed in parliament

The Icelandic parliament has passed new laws on the National and University Library of Iceland to take effect immediately. The older law nr. 71/1994 is revoked.

The law has been under reconsideration for several years now. A new proposal was submitted in 2008 but did not pass at that time. Also, a number of comments were submitted on that text, some of which have been taken into account in the new law.

An English translation for informative purposes only is being prepared and will be published on this website.
